A beautifull proof of love....Andrée Chedid.

Une belle preuve d'amour…   Andrée Chedid.

Hommage à Andrée Chedid, décédée le 06/02/2011.

 

It was in the Parisian church Notre Dame of Lebanon that Matthieu Chedid (French song writer) accompanied by his daughter Billie, sang with emotion his famous piece writing by his grand-mother Andrée Chedid. This song contains in particular the words: “ I say liked, and I sow it on my planet, I say M ( Matthieu ) like an emblem, the hatred I throw it away, I say love, love, love.”

 

 

Andrée Chedid et sa famille

 

 

Andrée Chedid, who was born in Cairo had ancestral ties to Lebanon and Syria, spent most of her life in France.  She began her elementary education in Egypt, completed her secondary education in Paris, and received a degree in journalism from the American University in Cairo.  She lived in Paris from 1946 where she became a French citizen by choice. She is considered a great contemporary writer of French literature and has received numerous awards.


Beginning her literary career as a poet, Chedid has explored other generic forms of expression with success. In addition to twenty-two volumes of poetry, not counting her illustrated poetry, Chedid wrote sixteen novels, seven plays and numerous short stories. In addition to English translations, Chedid's works have been published in fifteen other languages.

 

Louis Chedid, son of late was not present at the ceremony because he was nominated at the 26e “Victoires de la musique” for his disc "One never says enough to people that we loved, that we love them”. Louis Chedid, destroyed by the terrible news, did what his mother always said to him: “Carry on the way of the passion, even in the adversity.”
