Will Aya Nakamura Sing Piaf at the 2024 Paris Olympics?

The Franco-Malian singer Aya Nakamura in Paris

The Franco-Malian singer Aya Nakamura, recently crowned female artist of the year, reportedly received some special advice from President Emmanuel Macron.

According to L’Express, it was during a discreet meeting at the Élysée on February 19 that the President of the Republic suggested she choose songs for her performance at the opening of the 2024 Olympics. Nakamura reportedly expressed her admiration for Édith Piaf, to which the head of state responded positively, encouraging her to perform the legendary singer’s songs at the event.

The ceremony, staged by Thomas Jolly, promises to be a rich and varied spectacle, reflecting the diversity of French culture. From JUL to soprano Natalie Dessay, the goal is to show that France has a mosaic of musical genres.

Known worldwide for her hit Djadja, Aya Nakamura embodies this dual Franco-Malian culture. Let’s remember that she is by far one of the most well-known French singers abroad. Madonna’s children have hummed her hits and Naomi Campbell, among other international celebrities, has publicly congratulated her. We wish her the best for this performance.
