Jean-Jacques Goldman (born 11 October 1951) is a French singer-songwriter. He is hugely popular in the French-speaking world. In the 1990s, he was part of the trio Fredericks Goldman Jones with a string of hits.

In 1987, Jean-Jacques Goldman recorded the hit single "Là-bas" with Sirima, which remained a popular song throughout the years.


From 1990 to 1995, he recorded 2 studio albums, one live album and released several singles (such as "Nuit", "À nos actes manqués", "Né en 17 à Leidenstadt" and "Tu manques") with Carole Fredericks and Michael Jones, which were successful.


In 2007, Jean-Jacques Goldman recorded the hit "4 Mots sur un piano" with Patrick Fiori and Christine Ricol.
