Charles Trenet

Charles Trenet (born Louis Charles Auguste Claude Trenet, 18 May 1913, Narbonne, France ? 19 February 2001, Creteil, France) was a French singer and songwriter, most famous for his recordings from the late 1930s until the mid-1950s, though his career continued through the 1990s. In an era in which it was exceptional for a singer to write his or her own material, Trenet wrote prolifically and declined to record any but his own songs. ... more on Wikipedia
