when Gilbert Montagné sings to the glory of Kylian Mbappé and the Blues
12:28 a.m., December 09, 2022
It’s a tune that everyone knows. Exceptional guest of the program “Europe 1 Sport” (every evening from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.), singer Gilbert Montagné decided to compose a title on Kylian Mbappé and the Blues by diverting his hit “Les sunlights des tropiques”.
Will Gilbert Montagné be the new Vegedream of 2022? The singer known for his many hits including The sunlights of the tropics composed, on a whim with Didier Barbelivien, a title bearing the image of the nugget of the Blues Kylian Mbappé to encourage France for the Football World Cup in Qatar. Distinguished guest on the show Europe 1 Sportswhich takes place every evening from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., Gilbert Montagné explained that he wanted to “thank the star of the France team.”
Present on the set of the show, Didier Barbelivien said he had suggested this idea to the singer following France’s match against Poland: “I called Gilbert when I saw the two goals against Poland, c “that is to say something that I have never seen: a player to make the left corner then the right corner in 20 minutes. From spectator’s memory I have never seen such a thing.”
“A spontaneous way to say thank you”
After discussing the extraordinary performances of the Paris Saint-Germain striker, Didier Barbelivien decides to write a few sentences about Mbappé. “I said to him:” Gilbert, wouldn’t we make a “gimmick” for Mbappé and for the France team?”, Says the host of the Europe 1 show. Tell me what you sing. The idea immediately appealed to Gilbert Montagné who received his friend’s short written sentences by SMS. The next morning, the singer goes to his studio and composes these few sentences.
“In the France team you are magic”, can we listen in this tube. A tribute therefore to Kylian Mbappé but also to the entire French team who were close to both hearts: “With Gilbert, we don’t have 50 ways to thank them. So if we can do it in a few notes, it’s a spontaneous way of saying thank you”, justified Didier Barbelivien at the microphone ofEurope 1 Sports. As the France team seeks a place in the semi-finals of the World Cup in Qatar on Saturday against England, let’s hope that this recovery will motivate them to win.
