Backed by the Pan-European success of her rendition of Desireless’ 1986 dance hit “Voyage,” the track climbed the charts in Germany, Sweden, Poland, Switzerland and Austria. Kate Ryan then released “Ella, Elle L’a,” a brilliant remake of French pop diva France Gall’s tribute to Ella Fitzgerald from Gall’s 1985 hit album Babacar, scoring a massive hit from Europe to North America.
“Ella Elle L’a” achieved Top 10 positions in Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark and many other countries. In Spain, “Ella Elle L’a” was the number 1 download for 8 consecutive weeks, selling over 200,000 copies.
Kate was awarded a World Music Award for Best Selling Benelux Artist Worldwide, performing on the same stage as Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Kid Rock and Alicia Keys at the World Music Awards. Belgian singer Kate Ryan continues to conquer the charts and the hearts of pop/dance music lovers worldwide.
