Leroy's Early Life
Leroy lived most of her early life in Paris with her mother, Mural Leroy, and her younger sister. She, unfortunately, didn't see her father, Jean Luc Le Magueresse, much because her parents were divorced.

With a law degree in hand, Leroy was ready to take on the world, but after watching the "Star Academy", she changed her mind about law and focused on performing arts. She practiced and joined the next season of Star Academy. Her voice and grace dazzled the judges immensely. Leroy won the hearts of fans and won the competition in 2002.
Leroy debuted her first album “Nolwenn” in 2003, and the album went platinum twice, in 2003 and 2006. She won numerous awards for her craft and continued to make more popular albums such as "Bretonne" in 2010. Some of her songs were featured in the 2014 animated film “Song of the Sea”.
