Morgane (born Ingrid Simonis, 23 August 1975, Blegny) is a Belgian singer, best known for her participation in the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest.

Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

On 8 March 1992, Morgane's song "Nous, on veut des violons" ("We Want Violins") was chosen from ten entrants as Belgium's representative in the 37th Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 9 May in Malmö, Sweden.[1][2] "Nous, on veut des violons" proved unsuccessful at the contest, finishing in 20th place of 23 entries, having received points from only four other countries.[3]

Later career[edit]

After Eurovision, Morgane released several more records and made frequent television appearances, before falling out of view in the mid-1990s. She continued her involvement in music, albeit not in the public eye, and became a mother of three children.

Morgane has recently (2009) relaunched her career, now performing rock/gothic-influenced music.[4]
