Edith Piaf: The Little Sparrow

Edith Piaf: The Little Sparrow

From the ruthless streets of the murderous Belleville district of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York’s glamorous concert halls, Edith Piaf’s life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love.  Raised in wretched poverty while surrounded by prostitutes and pimps, Piaf’s magical voice made her a star on both sides of the Atlantic. Her passionate romances and friendships with the greatest names of the period (Yves Montand, Jean Cocteau, Charles Aznavour, Marlene Deitrich, boxing world champion Marcel Cerdan) made her a household name as much as her memorable live performances and beautiful renditions of the songs that she made internationally famous, “La Vie en Rose“, “Milord“, “Hymn to Love“, “Non, je ne regrette rien” and many more. But in her audacious attempt to tame her tragic destiny, the “Little Sparrow” flew so high that she could not fail to burn her wings.
