Biography[edit]

Priscilla Betti was born on August 2, 1989 into a family living in Nice (Alpes-Maritimes).

When Priscilla was eleven years old, she visited the show Drôles de petits champions, February 23, 2001, on TF1, and was noticed by a producer from the American company Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Patrick Debort. On September 25, she recorded her first single "Quand je serai jeune" for the record company BMG.

That same year, Priscilla went to New York and met her idol Britney Spears. Spears presented her with a disque d'or for her single "Quand je serai jeune".

Betti's first album, Cette Vie nouvelle, was released in June 2002.[1] It was certified Silver in France for sales of 50,000 copies.[2] Her second album, Priscilla was released only six months after the first one, in December 2002.[1] The album's first single, "Regarde-moi (teste-moi, déteste-moi)" was certified Gold in France for sales over 250,000 copies.[3] Priscilla sold over 100,000 copies in France, and was certified Gold.[2]

Betti's third album, Une Fille comme moi, was released in early 2004. The first single, "Toujours pas d'amour", peaked at number five on the French singles chart. The album peaked at number eight on the album chart, and was certified a Gold disc in France.[1][2]

After following traditional schooling until the end of 8th grade, she decided not to enter secondary school, instead taking correspondence courses so that she could better concentrate on her artistic career.

Betti's fourth album, Bric à brac, was released in the summer of 2005. It peaked at number 20 on the French albums chart.[1]

Starting from February 2008 Betti played the main part in the musical TV series Chante ! on the channel KD2A.[4] The fourth and last season aired in 2011.[5] Songs from the first season were released as Betti's fifth album, Casse comme du verre, in December of 2007. The album peaked only at number 111 on the French albums chart.[4][1]

In the fall of 2014 Betti made her stage debut as the lead in a stage adaptation of the musical Flashdance which is being shown in Théâtre du Gymnase in Paris.[6] The musical is set to be shown until the March of 2015.[7]
