Today 1963 Edith Piaf died

Edith Piaf (real name Edith Giovanna Gassion) was born 1915_december_19 and she didn't even reached the age of 50 'cause she died 1963_october 11.
Well, that's actually wrong, she died october 9th. But the official announcement was made 2 days later, so you will find as her dying date 9, 10 and 11 october.

Edith Piaf was one of France's most beloved singers and became a national icon. Her singing reflected her tragic life, with her specialty being the poignant ballad performed in a heartbreaking voice. Some of her famous songs are La vie en rose (1946), Hymne à l'amour (1949), Milord (1959) and Non, je ne regrette rien (1960).

Born Edith Gassion her nickname became Piaf (a Parisian colloquialism for môme = sparrow).
In my humble opinion it's a 'must' to read her interesting biography at Wikipedia !!

I have a 9CD box called Piaf, Edith - L'Integrale. Wonderful music if you like it (and I do...).
I offer you just a simple but Grand Collection of 19 of her songs.
