Jil Aigrot, the singing voice of Edith Piaf in the movie, La Vie En Rose, is as passionate and magnificent in concert with her homage to Piaf as she is on film. She channels Piaf’s sound and body language with natural grace, and between each song she talks to the audience in her own natural voice. In her superb program all of the great Piaf songs are not only relived but given a special magic with Aigrot’s stunning voice.
Raised in the south of France, Aigrot specializes in the art of the French song. She grew up immersed in the music of Piaf, her mother’s favorite. As a child who knew she would be a singer herself, she was impressed by Piaf’s energy and touched by her emotionally charged lyrics. Piaf’s love songs resonated with Aigrot, especially as a teenager. “This voice came out me very naturally … When I was a student at the conservatory, I was told that my voice was not lyrical enough, that I should sing French pop songs.”
