About her

Lyrical cultural Art Award:


’ The magic of her voice takes us to the sublime, and when we listen to her, we move from reality to dreams. The harmonious variations of his tessitura open the way to happiness.

The solar personality of Brigitte Hool is reflected in her radiant interpretation. The audience who listens to her is as transcended by this passion that one feels vibrating in her. We could say that she is out of time, but it would be to ignore the person who loves life. She takes hold of her body and makes her dance to the rhythm of her joys while keeping a remarkable lucidity. Woman of the twenty-first century, she shares with us her love of music thanks to her exceptional gift. The light is in her voice and dazzles us: what more can you ask for? ’
