France Gall Early Years:
• France Gall was born in 1947 to a musical family in Paris. Édith Piaf and Charles Aznavour were among the singers her father penned songs for. Cécile Berthier, her mother, was a singer and the daughter of Paul Berthier, co-founder of Les Petits Chanteurs à la Croix de Bois.

• France Gall was the only daughter of her family and had two brothers, Patrice and Philippe. In 1963, Robert Gall encouraged his daughter to record songs and send them to publisher Denis Bourgeois.

• France Gall auditioned for Bourgeois at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris that July, and Bourgeois immediately signed her. Philips signed France later on.

• France Gall represented Luxembourg at the Eurovision Song Contest 1965. She chose Gainsbourg's "Poupée de wax, Poupée de son" from the ten songs offered to her.
