An internationally-known classic by Francis Lemarque, the song is a symbol of Paris that has captured the musical
imagination of generations.
In a message to Bertrand Delanoë, the Mayor of Paris and Paris 2012 President, Ms. Dion paid tribute to the city
that holds a special place in her heart and the Olympic bid that she is supporting.
She declared: “It means a lot to me to support Paris 2012. It is as a French woman
at heart that I offer you the hymn “A Paris”.
Bertrand Delanoë, moved by this gesture, expressed his gratitude to this immense artist.
Accompanied by a 500-strong chorus, Ms. Dion has given the song a new spirit and emotion and from ‘Music Day’.
