"Tous Ensemble" is a song recorded in 2002 by French singer Johnny Hallyday. The song was released on April 23, 2002, as a single. It was the official anthem of the French football team during the 2002 FIFA World Cup. French singer and songwriter Catherine Lara participated in the writing of the lyrics and produced the song.
