Annie performed the show "EDITH PIAF FOREVER" all over the country with grand success. Annie has been singing Edith Piaf for a long time
This show is all about Edith Piaf, her life, her music, her passion, after the tremendous success of "La Mome " in France and the Oscar winner (best Actress for Marion Cotillard) for "La Vie en Rose".
La Vie en rose is will be and will stay forever in our heart. This show is with a lot of emotion, drama and professionalism...
"My wife, friends and I recently attended Annie Royer's Edith Piaf Show, and the chanteuse, accompanied by her talented band, Les Garcons Musettes, truly captivated and wowed the responsive audience. What an impact! Royer, the elegant cabaret performer who constantly strives for quintessential refinement, gave Piaf's all-consuming, expressive songs just the right passion and brio to touch the heart--and soul. Her strong voice and professional stage presence didn't change a bit over the years we have known Miss Royer. Succinctly stated, Annie Royer, donning both black and blond wigs and belting out such Piaf signature songs as "La Vie en Rose," and "Non, Je ne regrette rien," was at her regal apogee! I loved every minute of it. Piaf would have, too!."
