Charles Aznavour has passed away.

The great singer Charles Aznavour, often referred to as the "French Sinatra", has passed away at the grand age of 94 years. 

The man who sold more than 100 million records during a career that spanned decades, and which rivalled not only Sinatra but also his slightly younger contemporary Elvis Presley was appointed, in 2009, ambassador of Armenia to Switzerland, as well as Armenia's permanent delegate to the United Nations at Geneva.

His final concert took place in Osaka, Japan, on September 19th.

Proudly French, viscerally attached to his Armenian roots, known all over the world, Charles Aznavour accompanied three generations through their joys and pains. His masterpieces, his tone, his unique brilliance will live far beyond him.
