A nominal star of the famous singer and composer Charles Aznavour is opened on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The legendary chansonnier has recorded more than 1200 songs in eight languages.
An opening of the star took place in California, near the Pantages Theater. State Senator Kevin de Leon congratulated Sh. Aznavour and presented him a symbolic key of Los Angeles. The representative of the Government called the singer one of the greatest artists of the contemporaneity.
Charles Aznavour thanked America, which has become his second home. And he also expressed gratitude to the Armenians of California, who directly participated in the organization of this event. The singer has the Armenian roots. But Aznavour was born and grew up in France.
Earlier it was reported that Hugh Laurie had become the owner of the nominal star. The actor is known for his role as Dr. House in the eponymous film.
Hollywood Walk of Fame accommodates more than two thousand stars with the names of the legendary artists: the actors, singers, composers, musicians, producers, and even fictional characters. For example, Mickey Mouse, Shrek, Donald Duck and the Simpsons have their nominal stars.
