Edith Giovanna Gassion Wiki Biography

When one thinks of Edith Piaf, one thinks of love, sorrow and music. One did not breathe without the other two.

1For me, singing is a way of escaping. It is another world. I'm no longer on earth.
2You never know a guy till you've tried him in bed. You know more about a guy in one night in bed than you do in months of conversation. In the sack, they can't cheat!
1In 2016, Lambert Wilson released the album "Wilson chante Montand" in which he sings the songs of Yves Montand. The musical arrangements of the 17 songs were made by Bruno Fontaine. Among the 17 tracks there is "Mais qu'est-ce que j'ai ?" composed by Henri Betti with the lyrics of Édith Piaf in 1947.
2The theme of the celebrity's tragic life and death is recalled in the song "Cage the Songbird". A song written by Elton John, Bernie Taupin, and Davey Johnstone and performed by Elton John, first appearing on the album Blue Moves in 1976. It tells the fictional story of torch singer Edith Piaf's last hours before a tragic suicide. "Cage the Songbird," is particularly noteworthy as it recalls the life of Edith Piaf in much the same way that "Candle in the Wind" had immortalized Marilyn Monroe.
3On 12 June 2012, Piaf and jazz trumpeter Miles Davis were pictured on separate commemorative postage stamps in a joint issue by the USA and France. The nondenominated 'forever' USA stamps had an initial issue price of 45¢; each; the French stamps had denominations of 0,60 EUR (Davis) and 0,89 EUR (Piaf).
4Her only child, a daughter Marcelle Dupont, died in 1935 from a meningitis aged 2.
5Daughter of Louis-Alphonse Gassion and wife Annetta Giovanna Maillard.
6After living with her maternal grandmother for a short time, she was raised by her paternal grandmother, who ran a brothel in Normandy.
7Her song "La vie en rose" was voted a Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1998.
8Among her most popular songs are "Mon légionnaire" (1936), "La vie en rose" (1945), "Hymne à l'amour" (1949), "Sous le ciel de Paris" (1954), "Milord" (1959) and, the probably best known, "Non, je ne regrette rien" (1960).
9Is portrayed by Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose (2007), a biopic about her life.
10She actually died at Plascassier, Grasse parish, in the department of Alpes-Maritimes and not Paris, but her death wasn't made public until the body was returned to her birth city.
11Her mother was half Italian by her father and half Kabyle (Algerian) on her mother's side.
12Despite many problems throughout her career, Piaf eventually became the most highly paid star in the world.
13Her father Louis-Alphonse Gassion was an acrobat, her mother Annetta Giovanna Maillard was a street singer.
14Had a child named Marcelle who died at the age of two, in 1935, from meningitis.
15She was very good friends with Marlene Dietrich, who was the maid of honor at her wedding to Jacques Pills.
16Was romantically involved with boxer Marcel Cerdan when he died tragically in a plane crash between Paris and Casablanca (1949).
17Helped to launch many careers including that of Yves Montand, Eddie Constantine and her husband Théo Sarapo.
18She is mentioned in the song "Lady Nina" by rock band Marillion.
19Her grave is situated in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, France.
20Her stage name, 'piaf', is a slang word for 'small bird', which fitted her physical appearance.
