Riccardo Cocciante (Italian: [rikˈkardo kotˈtʃante]; born 20 February 1946), also known in French-speaking countries and the U.S. as Richard Cocciante (French: [ʁiʃaʁ kɔʃjɑ̃t]), is an Italian singer, composer, theatre man and musician.

Personal life

Cocciante was born on 20 February 1946 in Saigon, French Indochina, now Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, to an Italian father from Rocca di Mezzo (provincia dell'Aquila) and a French mother. At the age of 11, he moved to Rome, Italy, where he attended school. He also lived in the United States and Ireland.

Career

Cocciante began achieving success as a musician around 1972. In 1976, he covered the Beatles song "Michelle" for the musical documentary All This and World War II. That same year, he released his sole English album in the US, with the single "When Love Has Gone Away" peaking at #41 on the Billboard Hot 100.[1]

In 1991, he won the Sanremo Festival with the song "Se stiamo insieme", and for Christmas 1997, his friend Plácido Domingo invited him to sing at Domingo's annual Christmas in Vienna concert, together with Sarah Brightman and Helmut Lotti.

As of 2008, Cocciante has three musicals running, with Notre-Dame de Paris being the most known.

His oeuvre includes recordings in Italian, French, English, and Spanish; he has recorded some of his songs in all four languages, including "Pour Elle" recorded as "Per Lei" in Italian, "Para Ella" in Spanish, and "I'd Fly" in English.
