"La Vie En Rose":
songs of Edith Piaf


Edith Piaf was born on a Paris sidewalk in front of a police station, her mother a street-singer, her father a street-acrobat, and she grew up in a brothel.

At age eight she learned to sing La Marseillez and passed the hat for her father's act. At fifteen she struck out singing on the street to become the world's highest paid cabaret artist. Today, years after her death, Edith Piaf remains the most beloved and revered singer of France.

"Piaf tribute storms Odette's on
Bastille Day...Elizabeth Hodes'grand theatricality conveys Piaf's spirit and humanity. Vive La France!"
