    The French singer Charles Aznavour has died at the age of 94. Born in Paris to Armenian parents, he sold more than 100m records in 80 countries and had about 1,400 songs to his name, including 1,300 he wrote himself. He was sometimes described as the French Frank Sinatra.

    His biggest hit in English was She, a 1974 romantic ballad which spent four weeks at No 1 in the UK singles char. He also recorded the song in French (my favourite version), German, Italian and Spanish.



    Over the years he recorded duets with the likes of Sinatra, Elton John, Céline Dion, Bryan Ferry, and Sting, as well as the classical tenors Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo. In 2010, he recorded Un Geste pour Haiti Chérie, a song with young French rap stars, to help raise money after that year’s devastating earthquake in Haiti.

    Charles Aznavour, French singing star, dies at 94

    I too loved his music. Tous Les Visages De L'Amour was one of my favourite songs to sing at karaoke. :embarrassed:
