1) Tal Benyerzi (born in Israel in 12 December 1989), professionally known by her mononym Tal, is an Israeli-born French singer-songwriter and occasional dancer. She is currently signed to Warner Music France.
Tal's family immigrated to France when Tal was just under a year old. Her name translates roughly as "morning dew" in Hebrew. She was born into a veritable musical home. Her father was a guitar player, her Yemeni-Jewish mother a professional singer under the name Sem Azar. Her brother is a songwriter and her aunt and cousin singers.
At the age of 12, Tal learned to play piano and guitar and enrolled in dance lessons and modern jazz. She also took part in a theater group called "Les Sales Gosses". She started playing in piano bars making interpretations of classics and contemporary songs. As a fan of Michael Jackson, she and her brother improvised moves on a collection of his songs. Her debut song and music video was with "La Musique mon ange".
Her meeting with songwriter and producer L'Aura Marciano developed her career and after a collaboration of 2 years, she released her debut album Le droit de rêver with pop melodies, urban rhythm and at times classical arrangements. Collaborations included Sean Paul in "Waya Waya" mixed by Veronica Ferraro, L'Algérino in a remake "Le sens de la vie" and John Hanes as sound engineer.
Her first single from the album was "On avance" reached #29 in SNEP, the official French Singles Chart. That was followed by "Waya Waya". Her biggest hit was "Le sens de la vie" taken from the album. It reached #4 in the French charts. The album also contains a bonus version of the song featuring French-Algerian L'Algérino as a bonus track. Her songs deliver a message of hope and peace, without religious or cultural barriers, and a French music without boundaries.

In 2013, Tal joined the Les Enfoires charity ensemble. Tal also won her first NRJ Music Award in 2013, as the Francophone Breakthrough of the Year.

- LyricsJ'ai voulu dormir, et j'ai fermé les yeux
Sans même voir que le ciel était bleu
Je me suis réveillée sous un nouveau soleil
Et depuis ce jour là rien n'est pareil
Lumières des projecteurs qui réchauffent mon coeur
- LyricsTu sais, rien n'est parfait,
Ça ne doit pas t'empêcher
D'avoir cette rage d'exister.
Tu l'as dis, la vie c'est pas le paradis sur terre.
Elle te fait des coups d'enfer.
- LyricsIl y a des jours, où je vis loin du monde
Autour des jours où mon cœur est trop lourd
Tant de souvenirs qui me lassent
Il y a des nuits où pour retrouver la paix
J'entends sa voix qui me disait
- LyricsOn avance
Si j'entends mes aînés juger
Critiquer ma génération
Je pense qu'ils oublient un peu trop vite
Que le monde est tel qu'ils l'ont laissé
