Charles Aznavour personified the Armenian story – the child of refugees became a global idol who delivered messages of humanity through his music and his huge personality. His charisma, his worldliness, his genuine love for people took him around the world and we will all remember him for what he gave us – love, energy, faith in ourselves and our fellow man. He did this as an entertainer and philanthropist. He will not be forgotten and we will miss him.
