Charles Aznavour to receive Hollywood Walk of Fame star!

Legendary entertainer and crooner, Charles Aznavour will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Live Performance category on August 24th at 11:30am. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will unveil Aznavour's star with the help of its President/CEO, Leron Gubler and guest speakers California State Senate President pro Tem Kevin de Léon and director Peter Bogdanovich.

Born in 1924 in Paris to survivors of the Armenian genocide, Aznavour's expansive career spans 70 years with 1,400 songs (1,300 of which he personally wrote). He has produced over 390 albums in French, English, Armenian, Spanish, Russian, German and Italian, many of which have gone Platinum and Gold. 

Making his stage debut at age 9 as an actor-dancer, Aznavour spent 20 years working to the top of the theatrical world. Often called the Frank Sinatra of France, many of his personally written songs became famous when sung by Edith Piaf, Mistinguett, Maurice Chevalier and Juliette Greco. Since this time, he has sung in 9 languages at some of the world's most famous venues, such as Carnegie and Radio City music halls. 

His songs "She," "Dance in the Old Fashioned Way" and "Yesterday When I Was Young" have become staples of the international record selling markets and, in 1998, he was named "Entertainer of the 20th Century" in a CNN/Time Online poll. With millions of fans worldwide, this international superstar and singing sensation has attracted legions of international and multicultural fans for more than 84 years.
