Paris cel­e­brates ‘French Elvis’

The Citizen (KZN) - - NEWS - Paris

– France will pay a “na­tional homage” to the le­gendary rock star Johnny Hal­ly­day, 74, with a pro­ces­sion down the Champs El­y­sees in Paris to­mor­row.

Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron will later pay a “brief” trib­ute to the singer at his funeral at the grandiose Madeleine church.

The an­nounce­ment came as spec­u­la­tion mounted that the singer, known as the French Elvis, who died on Wed­nes­day, would be given a state funeral. – AFP
