Biography

Rosy Armen was born in Paris, France on May 1, the same day as the May Day worker's holiday. She has been singing since the age of 4, when she would lead the youth orchestra of her school until she eventually started singing solo songs. Despite her parents disapproval of a career in singing, she continued on with her passion and eventually, found herself singing next to established French music stars such as Gilbert Bécaud, Charles Aznavour, and Johnny Hallyday.

After the 1988 earthquake in Armenia, Charles Aznavour invited her to record alongside him and other singers the song "Pour Toi, Arménie", a song that remained in 1st place for 10 weeks in a row in the French Top 50. In 1990, she did a tour in Armenia in order to help the people recovering from the earthquake and to show France's support to Armenians.
