Vanessa Paradis (no longer with Johnny Depp-recently split-they were a couple for many years) is hands down the best of modern day singers. I don't normally listen to modern day, prefer 1960's and even 1950's, but happened to hear Vanessa Paradis on French radio earlier today and recalled viewing her on Youtube over five years ago. Here's two super videos found when searching her on Youtube today....

Another really good one:

N12 Vanessa Paradis Divine idyll (Concert Acoustique) 22/11/2009

--searched a bit, looks like Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp broke up a year ago; she's done concerts in U.S., would like to see one but no tours appeared to be scheduled.

Her Les cactus is awesome...happened upon that one back in 2008 or so, was the first to comment under the video (all my comments under videos disappeared though when I closed my Youtube channel) . Had wrote something about it (Les cactus) bringing to mind Buffalo Springfield/Neil Young/Crazy Horse with a Lenny Kravitz update. Just pieced it all together having just read her Wiki page, and Vanessa Paradis was dating lenny Kravitz then; so, looking loser at the video, pretty sure that's Lenny Kraitz on guitar. And the song is a remake of 1966 Jacques Dutronc.

Very tearful after winning an award, recovers and sings really well, her voice is so good....looks like Vanessa paradis was still emotional after the song, resuming crying; great video:

Amazing Vanessa paradis was able to sing when obviously overcome with tears/emotion (above).

After viewing the above videos numerous times, thinking her Divine Idyll 2009 Concert Acoustique is the best one....model beauty--she gives many great looks, particularly at 1:05--like a look from a fashion show catwalk; and her voice is superb. That's why I think she's the modern day best.

Wow! Thought Divine Idyll was her best but this song fits Vanessa Paradis to a "T"; numerous videos--different versions, ths one is excellent, will have to try others as well, but love this one:
