Jenifer Yaël Dadouche-Bartoli (born 15 November 1982 in Nice, France), known by the mononym Jenifer, is a French singer and actress.
Since winning the first season of Star Academy France in 2002, she has had a number of hit singles on the French, Belgian and Swiss charts.

Jenifer Bartoli was raised with her younger brother Jonathan, by her mother and father, Michel Dadouche and Christine Bartoli. Her mother is part Corsican-Italian and part Belgian; her father is a Jewish-Algerian. She comes from a modest background. She participated in the Graines de star television broadcast in 1997, but this was a failure.
Jenifer decided to go to Paris and attend the casting for the first series of Star Academy in France, which went on to become a huge hit on French television. She was selected, and eventually won. The hit single "J'attends L'amour" (I'm waiting for love) soon followed. After the tour with her band that followed her victory, she toured as a solo artist from October 2002 until January 2003, and eventually performed at the Paris Olympia, which she had dreamed of as a child.
Her debut self-titled album went on to sell over three-quarters of a million copies. The album featured a song written by Marc Lavoine and a duet with fellow Star Academy student Mario. The second single "Au Soleil" became one of the "tubes de l'été" (Summer hits) of 2002 in France. The album was re-released later to include two new tracks: "Entre Humains" and "Des Mots Qui Résonnent." The latter became her third top ten single in France and Jenifer stated that it was more her style of music, being more pop/rock. Finally a fourth song, the ballad "Donne Moi Le Temps" was released. The re-released album sold over a million copies.
In 2004 Jenifer returned onto the scene with her second, more personal, melancholy album "Le Passage". Among others, this album contained songs written by Calogero, Kyo, Tina Arena and one song Jenifer co-wrote. This album contains the singles "Ma Révolution" (My Revolution), "Le Souvenir De Ce Jour" (The Memory of This Day), "C'est De L'Or" (It's Golden) and "Serre Moi" (Hold me). The album was supported by an extensive tour across France and was followed by the release of a live album "Jenifer Fait Son Live" and an accompanying DVD.
She has stated that she also wants to produce music in English outside France.

In November 2010, Jenifer released her fourth studio album called "Appelle-moi Jen" (Call Me Jen), which charted at number 13 in France. It's a pop/rock-electronical album which has a 1980s French song lookalike. The first single of the album, "Je danse"(I Dance), was released in September 2010. This song was a hit in France and also in Belgium, rising to the 3rd position in the charts.

In 2012, she is a The Voice's coach (with Florent Pagny, Garou and Mika) for TF1.

Jenifer lived with French musician Maxim Nucci for five years before splitting up in February 2008. They have a son named Aaron (born 5 December 2003). Jenifer met French actor Thierry Neuvic on the set of the film Les Francis.
They started dating in July 2013. In April 2014, Jenifer announced she's expecting her second child with Neuvic. On 13 August 2014, she gave birth to a boy named Joseph. The couple split up in January 2016.

Jenifer is a member of the Les Enfoirés charity ensemble since 2003.
