Lova Moor (real name Marie-Claude Jourdain, born on March 5, 1946 in La Grève-sur-Mignon, Charente-Maritime) is a French dancer, singer and occasional actress.

Biography[edit]

She began her career as a nude dancer. Hired by Alain Bernardin at the Crazy Horse Saloon, she quickly reached notoriety by becoming leader of the troupe and by marrying her employer, who died in 1994.

In 1986, she released her debut single, "Tendresse SOS" which passed unnoticed, then "Et je danse" in 1988 which hit #9 on the French SNEP Singles Chart.[1] Her next singles, "Je m'en balance" (1989), "Danse encore" (1990), "My Life" (1991), "Jealous" (1992), "As You Want" (1993), "Ma Géographie" (1993), "Oh les mecs" (1997) and "Batucada" (1998). A compilation containing another song "C'est vrai" was released in 2003 by Yvon Chataigner.

She appeared in three films : Crazy Horse de Paris (Alain Bernardin, 1977), Saturday, Sunday and Friday (Castellano & Pipolo, 1979) and Le Tronc (Bernard Faroux and Karl Zéro, 1992).

She also produced a perfume.
