Who's got talent? French guys!!
According to Le Figaro, United States President Barak Obama has chosen two French composers from Bordeaux (yes, France!) to write his campaign theme song. The ditty, entitled What's More, was written by Tony Jazz and Mathieu Billon, who, in addition to being young, very young, are immensely talented and energetic.
Raised in the infamous 9-3, Jazz at 26 had already racked up credits at Universal and Sony and founded his own communications company specializing in musical design. Billon, also ridiculously young, is a case study in finding one's talents. After a DUT he entered a work-study (alternance) program at INSEEC Bordeaux with the hope of founding a restaurant. An internship in marketing at Kaizen Marketing Group opened up a whole new world for him, an "American vision of entrepreneurship" with bosses barely older than himself.
One thing led to another and the two young French entrepreneurs met. In January last year Jazz and Billon created "On Air Agency".
How did these two Frenchmen with no connections seduce the president of the United States?
"Talent," says le Figaro, "Simplement du talent".
A clip (see above) that Jazz made in honor of Obama's 2008 election caught the eye of Obama's campaign, which led to a meeting with Charles Rifkin, the US ambassador to France.
And the rest was history.
A stunning acknowledgement of young French talent!
