Charles Trenet

Louis Charles Auguste Claude (Charles) Trenet (Narbonne, 18 May 1913 - Créteil, 19 February 2001) was a French singer, composer and actor, active from the nineties until the nineties of the 20th century. Trenet, who got his comic expression and his felt hat the nickname "Le Fou Chantant" (the singing fool), is best known for his world hit Douce France and La mer. In France, Trenet is just as famous as Édith Piaf and Charles Aznavour.
