    Do you mean "L'heur D'éspoire?"

    Really quickly, and this probably isn't exactly right 'cause I'm just doing it myself in my head phonetically.

    Lurr Des-pwar.

    Bonus points if you can roll the 'r's.

    I'm 100% it's spelt Lueur d'espoir as it's on a Canadian CD. Thanks for the reply. It means glimmer of hope btw.

    French vowels are often tricky to pronounce because there is really no phonetic equivalent in English to explain them.

    "Lueur," for example, is pronounced something like "leuh-euhr"

    If it were French French, it'd be "leu-euhrr desspwarr." However, what the pronunciation in Canadian moon-French is, I don't know. It should be pretty similar.
