So many beautiful moments are musically connected with the wonderful singer Mireille Mathieu for all eternity. What's really behind it, the charming 72-year-old has now betrayed.
She comes from the poorest conditions, shared a bed with four of her 13 siblings and folded envelopes in a factory to relieve the parents financially: Mireille Mathieu (72) was so grateful when a large, broad-shouldered man took her under his wing - Johnny Stark (†), the then most powerful music manager in France.
"He was a very strict man, " says Mireille Mathieu. "I did not go to school very early. He gave me instructions in French, German, English. I had to do gymnastics, dance and ride.
I had to learn everything: sing, walk, talk. "After a short pause, she says softly, " Without my late manager Johnny Stark, I would not be the Mireille Mathieu you know today. He gave me that iconic look. "And made her a real world star!
