Carla Bruni Tedeschi, known as Carla Bruni (born 23 December 1967) is an Italian songwriter, singer and model, and the wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Heiress to the Italian tire manufacturing company CEAT founded in the 1920s by her grandfather Virginio Bruni Tedeschi and sold by her stepfather Alberto in the 1970s to Pirelli (the brand lives on via its Indian subsidiary, founded in 1958), she was born in Turin, Italy. The family moved to France in 1973, reportedly to escape the threat of kidnapping by the Red Brigades, a Marxist-Leninist terrorist group active in Italy in the 1970s. Carla grew up in France from the age of five and later attended boarding school in Switzerland. She eventually returned to Paris to study art and architecture, but left school at the age of 19 to become a model as a full-time career.
Following her marriage to French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, in February 2008, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy immediately began accompanying Sarkozy on state visits, including to the United Kingdom in March 2008, which created a sensation in the international press and the public in the UK and France.
There was controversy on the eve of the state visit to the UK, with the publication by Christies auction house of a nude photograph of Ms Bruni taken during her days as a supermodel. There was also great interest in Ms Bruni-Sarkozy’s wardrobe, which was Christian Dior, seen as a diplomatic choice, being a French design house designed by John Galliano, a British designer.
Here is a track from her second album “No Promises”.
Those dancing days are gone

If any other first lady was to release an album, I would feature a track here. lol
