Mike Brant (born Moshé Michaël Brand, Hebrew: משה ברנד‎‎) (February 1, 1947 – April 25, 1975) was an Israeli pop star who achieved fame after moving to France. His most successful hit was "Laisse-moi t'aimer" ("Let me love you"). Brant committed suicide at the height of his career by jumping from the window of a Paris apartment.

Mike Brant's parents were from Poland. His mother, Bronia Rosenberg, originally from Łódź, was a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp. His father, Fishel Brand, from Biłgoraj, had been a resistance fighter during World War II, and was 20 years his wife's senior.

 His parents married following the war, and they applied to emigrate to Mandatory Palestine, but were initially denied permission. They attempted to reach Mandate Palestine by sea on an Aliyah Bet ship, and were sent to a British internment camp for illegal Jewish immigrants at Famagusta, on the island of Cyprus.

Mike was born in the British Military Hospital at Nicosia, Cyprus, on February 1, 1947. In September 1947, the family emigrated to Palestine after being included in a quota for Jewish immigration to Israel as the new nation was established in 1948, and they arrived in Haifa, settling in a kibbutz in Galilee.

 Mike Brant did not start speaking until six years of age, and very soon told his family and friends that when he grew up he'd be "a star... or a tramp!" At the age of 11 he joined his school choir.

Qui saura


Who will know is the title of a song played by Mike Brant , which is a cover of the song Che Sara  (it) of the Italian band Ricchi e Poveri 2 .

 Adapted in French by Michel Jourdan and registered in the spring of 1971, the song was released in April 1972 and sold over a million copies 1 .

A few months after the death of Mike Brant, Claude François, during a program on Europe 1 on August 28, 1975, plays this song on the original instrumental version, available on the Internet.
