Then she had many successive jobs including performances in the piano bars of the French Riviera. At 18, she gave birth to Raphael, her first son. Her repertoire was expanding, with many musical influences and over a thousand songs. In 1993, a first single entitled "Loin" was released, but didn't meet success.
In 1998, Ségara performed with Garou a duet for the album Ensemble contre le sida (Eng: Together Against AIDS).
