Magalie Vaé is the stage name of Magalie Bonneau, a French singer born on 6 January 1987 in Gonesse (Val-d'Oise). She was the winner of the fifth series of the French Star Academy TV talent show.


Magalie Vaé grew up in Le Thillay, in Val-d'Oise. In September 2005, she was selected to participate to Star Academy France. Four months later she ended up winning one million euros and a record deal to release her debut studio album. On 6 February 2006, Magalie went to Canada to record her album, produced by Rick Allison. The first single, Je ne suis qu'une chanson (I am but a song) was released a month later. Her self-titled album was released on 3 April 2006 to generally positive reviews.

In 2009 the French press reported that Magalie's second album had been recorded for over a year but got pushed back due to contractual disagreements with Universal Music[1]
