Remarkable Charles Aznavour at Madison Square Garden, New York City. His farewell tour. 90 years young performing, his beautiful voice for over two hours, and even dancing a bit. He did sit for a little, but most of the time moving and singing from his heart and soul. Romance personified. Evoking vivid memories for me of another time, another lifetime ago. He sang in French, English, and Spanish. He introduced his song Je Voyage with a little story. An old man was sitting on a bench in Paris. He was sitting next to a young woman. She asked him what he was doing and he answered her…”I’m traveling.” Where to she asked?. “Through my memories” he answered. Then he asked her the same question. She answered that she too was traveling. “Where to he asked?.”…….To her future she answered. …………………………………………Our past…is past….Je Voyage….Thank you Charles Aznavour for giving the audience your talent for a magnificent performance…through my memories, forever.

Awesome Paulette! I love the story before the song. Thank you for sharing this moment!
Thanks so much Syl. When he told this story, with his wonderful French accent, it even had more meaning. It really was awesome. So glad you have the sensitivity to truly appreciate the meaning. My pleasure to share…
