French singer and actor Charles Aznavour dies at age 94

In a 2013 interview Aznavour suggested he would sing until the age of 100.

In this file photo taken on January 20, 1982 French singer-songwriter Charles Aznavour (R) talks with French actor Michel Serrault (C) and director Claude Chabrol in Concarneau, on the set of the film "Les fantome du chapelier".

Charles had 1,400 songs to his name, 1,300 of which he wrote himself, and sold around 180 million records world across his 80 year career.

"All I can do is live, and I live on stage". Turkey vehemently denies that the massacre was genocide and insists it was part of the violence during World War I. He performed on stage into his 90s. In addition to the English-language She, other best-selling songs included La Boheme, 'For me, Formidable and La Mamma.

One early number, 1955's "Après l'Amour" ("After Love"), was banned on French radio for its depiction of a couple basking in post-coital bliss, according to The Guardian.

If sometimes critics hinted that his voice wasn't quite up to the task, they said people went to see one of the century's great singer-songwriters in action.
