 Legendary French singer Juliette Greco whose career spanned over half a century, has died aged 93, her family told AFP.

“Juliette Greco died this Wednesday surrounded by her family in the house she loved so much. Her life was one like no other,” her family said in a statement sent to AFP.

“She was still making French songs shine at the age of 89” when her career was ended by a stroke, it added.

She also lost her only daughter, Laurence-Marie, in 2016, the same year as the stroke.

“I miss it terribly. My reason for living is to sing! To sing is everything, there is the body, the instinct, the head,” she told the Telerama magazine in an interview in July.

“It is a very great woman who has left us,” Alexandre Baud the producer of her last tour, told AFP.

“Juliette had been tired for some time but she had kept her extremely sharp mind, as shown by her very open interview with Telerama,” he added.
