From the streets of the cutthroat Belleville district of Paris to the limelight of New York's concert halls, Edith Piaf's life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love. Raised in bitter poverty, surrounded by hookers, pimps and petty criminals, Edith's magical voice provided an escape, making her a star on both sides of the Atlantic.
Her passionate romances and friendships with some of the biggest names of the period - Yves Montand, Jean Cocteau, Charles Aznavour, Marlene Dietrich and world champion boxer Marcel Cerdan - made her a household name, as did her memorable live performances and beautiful renditions of songs heard across the globe: La Vie en Rose, Hymn To Love, Non Je ne Regrette Rien and many more. But despite her determination to deny her tragic destiny, the "Little Sparrow" - as she was known - flew so high that she could not fail to burn her wings.
