Edith Piaf - a lifelong struggle

December 19 2005

Scholar and biographer of the main star of French chanson Edith Piaf agree that the singer's life consisted of constant struggle - fight with each other and with the circumstances. The singer who conquered the whole world, was born in the literal sense of the word on the street. And it happened exactly 90 years ago.

The life of Edith was amazing from the start. Surprisingly, even that, having been born on the street, little Edith was able to overcome themselves and survive among hunger, cold and pitch dark. She suffered every possible disease. She breastfed wine mixed with water. Singer's biographers believe that most of his childhood the singer was raised in a brothel.
And despite all this, Edith Piaf, could become a true icon of French song, its symbol and the main "lodestar."

Today, Piaf's voice heard in every Paris cafe. Her songs - a real lure for customers.

In fact, starting to be a street singer, Piaf always remained with it. Piaf herself talked about his gift: "I do not sing for everyone, I sing for everyone," according to NTV.
