French singer, actor Charles Aznavour dies age 94

Pari / Charles Aznavour, the legendary French singer who inspired renowned musicians the world over, has died Monday at the age of 94, a press spokesperson said. 


Born Shahnour Vaghinag Aznavourian to Armenian immigrants in Paris in 1924, Aznavour entered the world of music at the age of nine and went on to have a glittering career spanning over eight decades, during which time he wrote, or collaborated on, more than 1,200 songs.

Aznavour garnered considerable international success and influenced a long list of world-famous artists from Bob Dylan to Elton John.

He worked alongside Édith Piaf in his early career and became one of France’s most recognizable musical exports in his own right.

His vast discography has been interpreted into more than eight languages but his talents were not restricted to music; he also appeared in over 60 films, including works by Jean Cocteau, Francois Truffaut and Claude Chabrol.

In his later life, he took on roles in international politics and was delegated a ceremonial ambassadorial role between France and Armenia.

He was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017.

Aznavour married three times during his life and leaves behind six children.
