France marks centenary of Edith Piaf's birth in shadow of Paris attacks

Edith Piaf pictured on December 30, 1960, performing on stage at the Olympia concert hall in ParisFrance marked the centenary of Edith Piaf’s birth Saturday with added poignancy, a month after the Paris attacks targeting the very joie-de-vivre that she embodied. “You have to keep going,” said Malene Lamarque, a chanteuse who belts out Piaf favourites every Tuesday at Le Vieux Belleville, a cabaret bistro popular with both tourists and locals in the northern Paris neighbourhood where the “Little Sparrow” grew up. In a show of solidarity with France, Piaf’s most famous song “La Vie en Rose” was reprised by an emotional Madonna at a show in New York, with only a ukelele for accompaniment.
