Croire (English translation: Believing) was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, performed in French by Belgian singer Lara Fabian, an at the time 18 year old up and coming artist, and some twenty years later an established performer in all of Europe, the U.S. and Canada, South America and Japan.
The song is a ballad, with Fabian singing that she wants to believe in the good of humanity, rather than its dark side. She sings that “we have love within us”, which is her central belief. Fabian also recorded the song in English and German language versions, as “Trust” and “Glaub’” respectively.
At the close of voting, this song received 90 points, placing a very respectable 4th in a field of 21.
