The original 45 of "Celine" by Hugues Aufray in 1966. (DR)

For a long time we have been singing about the love of this big sister, this Céline who, through the voice of Hugues Aufray, we know that she sacrificed possible happiness to raise her younger siblings when fate wanted these siblings no longer have a mother.

Since 1966, we have sung about the destiny of Céline, the sacrificed big sister who – you may know – is the direct inspiration for the first name of a little Quebecer born a few years later, Céline Dion. It is a decisive 45 laps in the career of Hugues Aufray since we also hear Stewball.
