Charles Aznavour has died at 94 years as announced by the news agency France Press. The singer is considered one of the most important voices of the 20th century and the ambassador of the French 'chanson' around the world.
The numbers of his legacy are more than remarkable.

This year he has taken the stage of the Liceo de Barcelona or the Starlite Festival of Marbella.
Aznavour published more than 30 albums and sold more than 180 million records, composed more than 1,400 songs in seven different languages and received many awards throughout his life. He also shot about sixty films.
His fame reached its zenith during the '60s and' 70s of the 20th century with romantic songs like 'Venice without you' or 'She’.
