France Gall, the winner of the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest with “Poupee de cire, poupee de son” for Luxembourg, has died today at the age of 70 from cancer.
France Gall was hospitalized just before Christmas, due to a severe infection. She was suffering from a recurring breast cancer, and lost her battle today at the age of 70. Her management stated the following on her Facebook page:
It is with great sadness that we learn this Sunday morning about the death of France Gall… She passed on the 7th of January at the age of 70.
All our thoughts go to her loved ones.
A great artist leaves us today…
