They are laying down the first stone for Grégory Lemarchal's house, the first home for cystic fibrosis patients.
Close to two transplant hospitals

Gregory´s friend Patrick Fiori was one of them who were there and at 0:41 he hold a picture of how the house will look like.

Gregory and Patrick sang this live on the radio and the sound could be better.But I think their voices together were beautiful

Christmas together
Spend Christmas together

Forget the borders

In the light of day
And against the silence
That surrounds us
Let the magic happen
Flakes of light
And the eyes filled with sun
When the nights are the same
In a word, a prayer
Make our hands stretch

If you do not cry in front of women
that we oppress and starve
if you do not feel pain
before this sentence which is theirs
if you do not shed any tears
if you are not invaded by heat
So, get a soul grafted
So, get a heart transplant

refrain:
When we have no more honor
there is still hope
there may be a donor
somewhere
when we have more honor
he still remains to know
if for real you are not afraid
if at least you know how to receive

here is another hand for you
to sign the peace for tomorrow
here is this brand new face
to talk a bit about sharing
if you finally perceive the lueusi you do not resume tears
you will be able to deposit your heart
you will be able to deposit your soul

refrain
When we have no more honor
there is still hope
there may be a donor
somewhere
when we have more honor
it still remains to know
if for real you are not afraid
if at least you know how to receive

Gregory died before his 24th birthday, Charles Aznavour who wrote these songs did his last concert 19/9 2018 in Osaka 94 years old 2 weeks before he died.I don´t know how long it´s possible to live after a lung transplantation, I think it´s individual .Gregory could have made many more songs and performances if there had been a donator.

I´ve posted some of the dances before but not all of them.
He was a champion in dance when he was 12
I wonder what he could have done if he had been healthy

"Being face to Gregory was facing someone who gives you a great lesson in life.Who shows you that even though he is going through
what overwhelms him, he is able to find in him resources that can not be imagined. I've learned by Gregory's side.
For me, Grégory, it's the light and if the light was a sound, it would be Grégory Lemarchal"

I´ve posted a duet they did earlier

I don´t know how much medicine he took while he was singing and talking and that´s only a part of the medicines he had to take every day to survive a little bit longer and feel as good as possible.

Today it was 36 years since he was born.
Happy birthday Gregory:heart:

When we only have love
To draw a path
And force the destiny
At each crossroads
When we only have love
To talk to the guns
And nothing but a song
To convince a drum
So without having anything
That the strength to love
We will have in our hands
Friends around the world

Gregory 16 years old.

I understand the part where his father said they always used to sing , together I assume.

Letter for greg was posted for his birthday this year by Richard cross who had been his voice coach for a while


Letter to Greg

My first memory of you is that of a very young man, shy and so young-looking, that we hardly noticed in the group that I had come to coach Lyon, in the early year 2000. A local composer had asked me to help artists he had just cast for a musical project. And now, on a Sunday full of sunshine, I find myself working in the city of Canuts, a dozen singers.

At the end of the day, the contact was established between us. I discovered your incredible singer talent. I admit it, I did not expect it. I had asked each member of the troupe to sing me his solo song and when your turn came, nothing had warned me of the shock I was going to have. The music has started. You got up and suddenly, it's as if we were on the illuminated stage of the Palais des Congrès, your voice, your presence became obvious. When you sat down, the others did not say anything. Just applauded for a long time. And I waited until the end of the day to talk to you and your parents, to tell them how much I had been touched

It was his health that stopped him from taking part in the musical belles, belles, belles.
the effort was going to be physically too important and it would be too tiresome to be on stage every night.
Gregory must have been devasted when he realised he couldn´t do the musical
But one of the men behind the show had been named "director" for Star Academy
The rest is history now

He ended one of his concerts with this song.he was tired after the concert and less than a year later his lungs were so bad so he needed a lung transplantation.

To sing is to vibrate your larynx to make sounds that will resonate in your mouth, in your nose, between your lips, but it is also to work your lungs to get the raw material of sound, air. And the air is what ultimately misses a person with cystic fibrosis. His lungs fill up with mucus every day, decreasing breathing capacity. My work as a vocal coach, parallel to that of the specialized physiotherapist, is to allow the singer to develop his air capacity to push back the constraints of the disease.

How many times, you said to me, after a successful exercise, "I feel like breathing better, thank you! ". You immediately added: "you have to help others and share your experience".Richard Crosse vocal coach

Dream an impossible dream
Carry the sorrows of departures
Burn with a possible fever
Leave where nobody leaves

Love to tear
Love, even too much, even badly,
Attempt, without strength and without armor,
To reach the inaccessible star

That is my quest,
Follow the star
I do not care about my chances
I do not care the time
Or my despair
And then fight always
Without questions or rest
Damn yourself
For the gold of a word of love
I do not know if I will be this hero
But my heart would be quiet
And the cities would splash of blue
Because an unhappy

Burns again, although having burned everything
Burns even, too much, even badly
To reach to be torn apart
To reach the inaccessible star

This is a duet from the semi-final in Star Academy4. Gregory won of course... after all he won the entire competition.
He seemed happy the next day
I was wondering why he wore a cap inside until I saw he had written MERCI(= thank you) on it. It must have been from the same day I posted a video earlier where he was singing when he took his medicin. There he said Thank you and I love you to those who were watching.
He really was grateful that people voted for him, and he never forgot it.

Grègory for Make a wish, in Bruxelle
[video=youtube;C28FyQBbEFM]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C28FyQBbEFM[/video]
He knew about Make a wish and he knew about pain and suffering too.
"tant que je pourrais, je resterai debout et je chanterai. Pour leur donner à tous l’espoir"Gregory Lemarchal
"As long as I can, I will stay up and sing. To give them all hope."
His girlfriend said in an interview after his death that it had become normal that Gregory had to go to the hospital during their time together.
Probably several times to get antibiotics intravenously.
FRiends didn´t know about it.
