A final farewell to Charles Aznavour, ambassador of La Chanson Française
Date created :
"A poet, who will never die" was how French President Emmanuel Macron described the late Charles Aznavour in his eulogy in Paris. From his humble beginnings to state honours at the Invalides military museum, the singer-songwriter's trajectory was punctuated with struggle, wild success and a string of high-profile artistic collaborations. We look at some of the tributes paid to the musician cherished by both France and Armenia as family, friends and fans bid adieu to the prodigious entertainer.
