Charles Aznavour: The Formative Years
Charles Aznavour was born as Shahnour Varinag Aznavourian in Paris to Armenian immigrants. His parents took keen interest in music (his father was a singer) and introduced the young Shahnour to performing. This would help him tremendously in later years as a performer. He performed in plays and even debuted in a movie as a child star. Aznavour learned to dance and soon paired up with Pierre Roche and danced in various nightclubs. It was at this stage that Aznavour started to sing and write songs.
The Big Break
He was only 22 when Edith Piaf saw him perform and was so impressed by him that she offered him to take him with her on the US and France tour. This was the big break Aznavourian, who had now shortened his name to Charles Aznavour, was looking for.
Charles Aznavour would open for Edith Piaf at the Moulin Rouge. It was Piaf who had advised him to pursue a career in singing and helped him develop a distinctive voice, which is “clear and ringing in its upper reaches, with gravelly and profound low notes.”
He is called “France’s Frank Sinatra” for a reason – his songs are often about love. He is perhaps the only singer who can perform in a variety of languages such as French, Armenian, Russian, German, Spanish, Italian and English. This is a unique talent to have and he had made the most of it too.
Aznavour, in addition to Edith Piaf, has sung with legendary names such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, Bing Crosby, Elton John, Liza Minnelli and countless others.
