Two years ago when I first heard Anne Carrere I predicted in my www.t2conline column that she would become an international star. With her Carnegie Hall debut last Friday night in Piaf! The Show. Inspired by the award-winning movie La Vie en Rose, this tribute to the legendary French singer Edith Piaf, had Ms. Carrere retracing her life and history through her greatest hits. “La Vie en Rose” and “Hymne à l’amour,” were musical treats. This concert was also a celebration of the 60th Anniversary of Piaf’s own legendary Carnegie Hall appearance.
My prediction came true with her sold out performance. This was a major triumph for Ms. Carrere. Supported by outstanding musicians: Phillippe Villa-piano, Guy Giuliano-Accordion,Laurent Sarrien-percussion, Daniel Fabricant-Double Bass, the night was a musical triumph. After singing “Non, Je ne Regrette Rien”(Michel Vaucaire/Charles Dumont) the audience jump to their feet and gave her one of the longest ovations I have ever witnessed. (See video)
