Elisa Tovati born Elisa Touati is a French singer, actress and television personality.
Elisa Tovati was born in 1976 to parents of Russo-Moroccan Jewish origins in Paris, France. She showed interest in theatre early in her life, and her teenage years saw her co-presenting a French programme Y'a pas d'lézard. Her co-star was Stéphane Tapie.
As the years went on, she featured in many telefilms such as Navarro, Highlander and Extrême Limite. Her singing career was to evolve as she was spotted during Roger Hanin's Soleil and the more crucial La Vérité si je mens ! 2 (2001) where she played the girlfriend of José Garcia.
In 2007 she starred in 99 Francs featuring Jean Dujardin and Vahina Giocante.
In late 2014 she became a contestant on the fifth season of TF1's Danse avec les Stars.
Her singing career began on the same year her last film hit the big screen. She compiled her first album whose name comes from her first ever song and single, making it to the Top 50 in the French Charts, Moi, je t'aime pour rien. Her 2002 album, Ange Étrange was made possible by others in the music industry, namely: Rick Allison, Richard Seff, Patrick Bruel, Yaël Benzaquen and fellow musician Axelle Renoir. In 2011, she released her first album in six years Le syndrome de Peter Pan.
