French singer Kendji Girac has been shot in the chest in an attack in France, it has been reported.

Girac, 27, won The Voice France back in 2014 and has worked with the likes of Mika in his career.

French publications are reporting that Girac was shot and injured last night at a travellers’ camp reception in Biscarrosse.

Law enforcement were notified of an incident shortly after 5.30am this morning, and arrived at the scene to find Girac in a ‘very serious condition’.

The singer was transported to a hospital in Bordeaux, where he was in intensive care.

BFMTV report he is now conscious.

‘He was at a travellers’ camp where he was wounded by a firearm,’ said an investigation source.

‘Gendarmes were alerted at around 5.30am, and when they arrived they were confronted by around 20 people who refused to communicated any information.

‘The emergency services meanwhile evacuated a seriously wounded man who had been shot in the chest, and he was rushed to hospital.’

Confirming the victim’s identity, the source described his medical condition as ‘life threatening’.

The father-of-one rose to fame in France after winning the third series of the popular TV singing show.

He has since released five albums and performed duets with other French singing stars, such as Vianney and Florent Pagny.

Kendjii Girac was born Kendji Maillé in Périgueux, in the Dordogne, and is of Catalan gypsy origin.

He has often spoken of ‘growing up in a caravan’ and left formal education at the age of 16.

In August 2013, his uncle posted a video online of Girac covering a song called Bella.

It became a huge YouTube hit, and was his ticket to The Voice, which he won with more than 51 per cent of the national vote.

In January 2021, Girac welcomed a daughter called Eva Alba, but has never revealed the identity of the little girl’s mother.

Prosecutors have opened a criminal enquiry into the reported shooting, and on Monday police searched the camp where it happened.
