The great maestro, the inimitable Charles Aznavour would have turned 98 years old today on May 22.
However, the legendary French chansonnier is still with us in his songs. He peered with his voice in our hearts. Aznavour still sings inside us with the voices of his Armenian ancestors, singers of Parisian cafes, and bohemian parties. And he sings in French, Armenian, Russian, English, and Italian…
He managed to do so much: write and sing over 1000 songs, raise and educate worthy children, be a true patriot of his two homelands - Armenia and France... But most importantly, he managed to teach us sincerity and humanity.
