"Chanter pour ceux qui sont loin de chez eux"
"Chanter pour ceux qui sont loin de chez eux" (English: Sing for those who are far from home) is a 1985 song recorded by French singer-songwriter Michel Berger on his album Différences. It was released as a single one year later.
In 1998, the song was covered by French singer Lââm and was released in September 1998 as her debut single and the lead single from her album Persévérance. The song was in fact released two years before, in 1996, but passed unnoticed at the time. Lââm promoted the song singing it live in many French TV shows. In Tapis rouge, she cried a lot after her performance. The single became a number-one hit for five weeks in Belgium (Wallonia) and peaked at #2 for ten weeks in France, being unable to dislodge the hit "Belle" by Garou, Patrick Fiori and Daniel Lavoie. However, it managed to stay on the chart (top 100) for 42 weeks, becoming to date Lââm's most successful single and the 105th best-selling singles of all time in France.
