Another testament to Charles Aznavour’s worldwide appeal.
Start spreading the news: Aznavour is taking over Manhattan! An early gala celebrating Armenia’s 20th anniversary will take place in New York City on May 20 and will pay tribute to globally renowned songwriter and singer Charles Aznavour.
The entertainer will be honoured for his achievements within the world of music and for his service to Armenia. This sparkling event, taking place at the lavish Cipriani Wall Street, is organized by the Fund for Armenian Relief (FAR) and features an honorary committee including the likes of Liza Minnelli, Tony Bennett, Celine Dion, Placido Domingo, Atom Egoyan, and Sir Elton John, to name just a few.
Charles Aznavour, a scattered bead himself, is an Armenian ambassador par excellence throughout Armenia and the diaspora. In fact, he conveniently holds the actual position of Ambassador of Armenia to Switzerland. French is the language he mainly creates and sings in, yet his appeal is universal in more ways than one.
