Charles Aznavour was a French and Armenian musician born in Paris in 1924. His father was a talented baritone who used to sing for customers of the family restaurant. Since he was young, Charles was immersed in musical sphere, and at the end of the Second World War, he decided he wanted to be a singer. He did his first successful songs in the mid-1950, but he reached the top when he was 36, in 1960. The song “Je m’voyais déjà…” is the first of a long success series. He wrote “Les Comédiens” in 1962, in association with the lyricist Jacques Plante. That song became the opening of The Molière Award.
It became a classic in choirs’ repertoire with its dynamic and snappy rhythm combined with festive and popular lyrics.
