Juliette Armanet will participate, on March 18 at the Olympia, in the 20th anniversary gala of the Alzheimer Research Foundation, sponsored by Manu Payet. The show will also be provided by regulars like Alain Souchon, Laurent Voulzy, Carla Bruni and Nolwenn Leroy, on March 18 at L'Olympia, the organizers said on Monday.
Closely affected by this illness, the interpreter of A la Folie made a documentary on her grandmother who suffered from it, filming her the last summer before her disappearance, she confided last July, in the show “Sept at eight".
To celebrate this anniversary, the concert has the theme “2 generations sing for the 3rd”. The artistic direction falls to Pierre Souchon. On stage, we find his brother Ours, another son of Alain Souchon, alongside Sandrine Kiberlain, Vincent Delerm, Pascal Obispo and Edouard Baer.
All profits from this evening will be donated to research against Alzheimer's disease, "the most common neurodegenerative disease", we can read on the website of the Foundation, created in 2004 and recognized as being of public utility in 2016. Tickets to attend the concert range between 30 and 90 euros.

This pathology is “characterized by a slow but progressive evolution of neuronal damage gradually affecting the cognitive abilities of individuals and progressively reducing their autonomy,” the organization further specifies. It affects around 1 million people in France.
