“La vie en rose” is perhaps one of those Edith Piaf ‘staples’ that is easy to quickly cite to display that you have some sort of knoweldge of French music and its key historical figures. earlier this year, this blogger stumbled across a strong contender for the richest, highly textured rendition of the Piaf classic, performed by “chantrice’. Katherine Jenkins. She does an amazing job of remaking the classic and in this TV appearance that I just stumbled upon – she delivers a great performance.
In our weekly French lesson, “la vie en rose’ came as highly recommended for French beginners serious about learning how to learn French conjugations through ‘chansons’. Great pedagogical tool this one!
