In March 2017, the van carrying Jenifer and her tour crew was involved in a fatal accident.

The years pass but Jenifer does not forget. The French singer, who recently released her latest album “N°9”, returned to the highlights of her career in a documentary broadcast on the NRJ12 channel on November 24.

I almost felt guilty for… If I hadn’t been a singer and if I hadn’t been on stage and if we hadn’t taken this van…”
