Lily Lian, seen as the last singer of the street of Paris, a friend of Maurice Chevalier, who died Sunday at the hospital of Ivry (Val-de-Marne), announced to the AFP his godson Michael Gautier. "Lily Paname" had been one of his successful record in the 1950s and 1960s. She had been immortalized on a square, a megaphone in hand, in the two shots of the famous Robert Doisneau for his series illustrating the small parisian trades.
Born on may 1, 1917, she had begun to sing the popular repertory of his childhood before becoming a singer of street to be recognised in the thirties: a career fluctuating, which was to make him cross, Edith Piaf, Tino Rossi, Maurice Chevalier, Yves Montand among others. Forced to convert after the war, due to the inexorable decline of his profession competed with the radio and the lp, it was not really managed to impose itself as a singer in the traditional way.
Muse of the composer, and actor Vincent Scotto, Lily Lian had published his memories in 1981: Lady Paname, Memories of the last singer of the streets. She was often invited by host Pascal Sevran, which she had helped in the early days of his career in his show, "The Lucky song".20 commentairesL'escobarle 25/05/2020 to 07:32

to all the people who write here : I, too, remember the singers and the singers in the courtyards before the war ! There was, at the Batignolles, a couple who sang, and my mother gave us a piece of currency that we enveloppions in the paper to launch it to the singers !
" Thou hast taken my youth ! Thou hast taken my beauty ! In a moment of drunkenness ! of supreme vo..lupté !
I know well that men are wicked, deceptive, but, will, I still love you ! And you can break it ... my heart !!!" Ah! my God ! as it was beautiful and as it is far !!! .....
Jack Lang (1939-...) is a tribute to Lily Lian (1917-2020), the inspiration of the music Festival. It is a shame that beautiful voice go off, without their flatterers do to sit through a moment of silence.Read the 20 comments
