Charles Aznavour has proven himself to be one of the greatest eminences in the world of art, gaining the respect of spectators and artists who look up to the Legend. When it comes to striving artists of Armenian origin, Aznavour is naturally considered to be one of the genealogical living Pillars if not myths that all us Armenians look up to as any child looks up to his forefathers. Today we would like to share with you the privilege that one of our own artists, Gilbert Simon, experienced and we wish him a bright future following on the footsteps of The Aznavour.
Gilbert Simon is a Lebanese Armenian Artist that was first revealed to the public on the Lebanese Reality TV Show Star Academy Season 8, in 2011. He gave many a great moments to his Armenian viewers throughout the program with his great attitude and performances, his presentation of the Armenian Genocide subject, and by introducing Armenian hymns and songs during the daytime airing of the show.
Last year Gilbert Simon was introduced to Charles Aznavour in Lebanon, where he presented the Legend with a peace of his caricature. Later on in 2016, Gilbert Simon recorded a cover “IL FAUT SAVOIR” Dedicated to our Beloved Musical Inspiration & Living Legend Mr. Charles Aznavour… ” that has obviously caught the attention of the Artist who shared it on his own social media page.
This should obviously mean the fondness or appreciation of the great Legend if not the blessing or encouragement to Gilbert Simon to do what he thrives to do. From Aypoupen to your attention wishing Gilbert Simon who shared the post “”When you wake up at 2 am & find out that the Living Legend’s official page shared my tribute version of his song…” Just Grateful & Speechless… ? GRAND Merci Charles Aznavour! ??Gilbert Simon”.
We look forward to seeing your success and name among the Legends of the future.
