Who was Jean-Claude Pascal?

Jean-Claude Pascal, real name Jean-Claude Villeminot, was a French comedian and singer.

After surviving the Second World War in Strasbourg, Pascal first studied at the Sorbonne-university and then turned to fashion-designing for Christian Dior. On his work for costumes for the theatre-play, Don Juan, he came into contact with acting and made his first cinema-movie in 1949 with Quattro rose rosse. Many movies should follow, among them La Belle et l'empereur or Angelique and the Sultan aside to Michèle Mercier.

Pascal won the 1961 Eurovision Song Contest for Luxembourg singing "Nous les amoureux" with music composed by Jacques Datin and lyrics by Maurice Vidalin. He later represented Luxembourg again in the 1981 contest and finished 11th of 20 singing "C'est peut-être pas l'Amérique" with words and music he composed along with Sophie Makhno and Jean-Claude Petit.
