Born Edith Giovanna Gasson in 1915, Edith Piaf is France’s greatest gift to the world of popular music. La Môme Piaf (The Little Sparrow) was the nickname that Louis Leplee gave Edith, when he discovered her in 1935 and invited her to perform at his Paris nightclub. The rest they say is history. Her life story is just as intriguing as her soulful performances of famous songs such as Non Je Ne Regrette Rien and La Vie En Rose.

Pete bought me her CD Eternelle for Christmas and I love it. I am thinking about buying the movie about her as well.
