Florian Cloud De Bounevialle Armstrong

Dido entered a prestigious London music school at age ten, and emerged as a teenager having mastered piano, violin, and her first instrument: the recorder. Her first album "No Angel" (1999) was critically acclaimed, but failed to make an immediate impact. Three events would soon propel Dido into global stardom and 20 million album sales: her song "Thank You" featured in the film "Sliding Doors" (1998), then "Here With Me" was chosen as the theme song for the TV show "Roswell" (1999-2002), and finally, "Thank You" was noticed and sampled by rapper Eminem, and included in his smash hit "Stan" in 2000. Having won over the record executives, Dido's second album "Life For Rent" was accompanied by an unprecedented media blitz, and was the best selling UK album in 2003.
