The future star was born on the pavement of the Parisian quarter in December. Despite the fact that the child might not survive, fate had other plans.
The baby was crying loudly. Thanks to this, the policeman found her and eventually found her relatives.
Those were difficult years. The father went to the front line, the mother could not feed the child.
The only hope left was to hand her over to her maternal grandmother.
She also did not particularly want to take responsibility for the baby. There was no concern on her part.
Grandmother poured wine into the baby’s feeding bottle. So she thought that the girl would sleep soundly and would not disturb her.
Father, fortunately, returned from the front. He took the girl to him.
Then his mother showed all the love and care towards her granddaughter.
It soon became clear that the future star could not see. Grandmother spent almost all the money to restore her health, she prayed sincerely.
And a miracle happened – the child began to see again.
Willpower, a unique voice, diligence – all this can be said about Edith Piaf, who won the hearts of an audience of millions.
The father performed on the streets of the city, showed various tricks. The girl was singing next to him. The owner of the cabaret noticed the young talent and took a chance.
She took the stage, proving that this is her place.
“A great star was reborn from the darkness”, “Pride not only of France, but of the whole world”, “I guessed right away. I recognized her facial features”, “I am very glad that she was able to break through like this”, “This talent has an interesting fate. I am proud that she was able to achieve all the heights,” netizens noted in the comments.
