Heart-wrencher: La Vie en Rose

Via: VideoSift

I read about the film 'La Vie en Rose' and eventually Edith Piaf, the Little Sparrow of Paris who lived during and enthralled the first half of the 20th century. The film is a biography of her life which is a collective medley of poignant stories from her birth to her untimely and tragic death at the age of 47. When you hear La Vie en Rose, you want to see the movie, read the story of her life, go to Paris to where she lay in peace.
Édith Piaf (December 19, 1915October 11, 1963) was one of France's most loved singers, who became a national icon. Her music reflected her tragic life, with her specialty being the poignant ballad performed in a heartbreaking voice. Among her most famous songs are "La vie en rose" (1946), "Hymne à l'amour" (1949), "Milord" (1959), "Non, je ne regrette rien" (1960).
