In a mesmerizing display of talent and creativity, 25-year-old Lebanese singer Manon Debs, known by her stage name Vernis Rouge, has captured the hearts of millions with her unforgettable performance on The Voice France.

Born in Lebanon and now residing in France, Vernis Rouge’s journey from her homeland to the international stage has been nothing short of remarkable.

In an exclusive interview with us, Vernis Rouge opened up about her personal life and background, shedding light on the experiences that have shaped her journey as an artist.

During her audition on The Voice France, Vernis Rouge stunned the audience with her unique rendition of the popular French rap song “Bande Organisée” by Marseille-based rap group 13 Organisé, released in 2020.

What set her performance apart was her ability to transform the rap anthem, known for its raw lyrics, into a soft and soulful cover that resonated with viewers.

Judges Bigflo and Oli, a renowned French hip-hop duo, were visibly impressed from the moment Vernis Rouge began singing.

As she delicately navigated through the song’s verses, seamlessly blending her ethereal vocals with the poignant lyrics, Bigflo couldn’t contain his excitement, exclaiming, “I really like it!”

The duo wasted no time in hitting the buzzer, eagerly expressing their desire to work with Vernis Rouge.

What added to the intrigue of Vernis Rouge’s performance was her seamless incorporation of the more aggressive expressions from the song. As she sang the line “n**** ta mere,” a colloquial French swear phrase commonly used by Lebanese as well, Bigflo’s surprised reaction to it spoke volumes about the impact of her unique interpretation.

BigFlo & Oli hit the buzzer, notable BigFlo did so with excitement before consulting Oli. Another judge, Mika, who’s also Lebanese and was awarded the Lebanese National Order of Merit for his concert which raised $1.7 Million for Lebanon, hit the buzzer but it was already too late.

Since her appearance on The Voice France, Vernis Rouge’s video has taken social media by storm, amassing almost 20 million views on The Voice’s TikTok and IG pages alone with a combined 1+ million likes.

Her soul-stirring cover has sparked a viral sensation, inspiring countless TikTok users across France and beyond to recreate her rendition and share it with the world.
