France Gall, French singer died at the age of 70 years
    On January 7, at the age of 70 years, the French singer France Gall died, reports AFP. In late December, she was hospitalized with a severe lung infection that appeared against the backdrop of cancer recurrence, with which the singer struggled for the last two years of her life.

    France Gall was born on October 9, 1947 in the family of the songwriter Robert Gall, who composed for Edith Piaf and Charles Aznavour.

    Her musical career began in 1963, and two years later she won the Eurovision Song Contest, speaking from Luxembourg, with the composition "Poupée de cire, poupeé de son" written for her by Serge Gainsbourg. This song was later translated into many languages, including its Russian cover version performed by Muslim Magomayev. Another song "Les sucettes", written by Gainsbourg for Gaul, caused a big scandal in France because of the sexual overtones read in her.

    By the end of the 1960s, the career of Frans Gall had declined, but in 1974 the singer met the young composer Michel Berger, who became her producer and husband. The next two decades, together with Berger, until his death in 1992, Gall released more than a dozen studio and live albums, including hits such as "Babacar", "Débranche", "Tout pour la musique", "La déclaration d'amour" and «Résiste».

    In 1994, Frans Gall became the Knight of the Order of the Legion of Honor, the highest French award.
