Comme d'habitude.
Maybe you think of FrAnk Sinatra and "my way" but the song is French from the beginning

I like this pressconference, the children were so sweet and Grégory too. and I like that it was a communal school. I understand he talked about motivation and he was very satisfied.....new album?victory in Star Academy?I need to work with my French

Grègory in the last tv-show he starred in
[video=youtube;qTTesL0ixyk]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTTesL0ixyk[/video]
If you notice a change in his face that's because he had to take more medicine, probably cortisone

Helene Segara said she knew him and he didn´t only have a beautiful voice, he was a beautiful person too.

Some rehearsals for "en chantant"
Some lyrics from the song
Life is more fun,
It's less hopeless
Singing.
The flower at the end of the rifle,
Victory wins too
Singing
I wish that on Earth,
All my good friends bury me
Singing
Death is more fun,
It's less hopeless
Singing.
Lyrics were partially written by Michel Sardou, a well known singer in France.He worked for Star Academy the time Gregory was there.Michel Sardou also worked with his own concerts and Gregory was invited to sing with him at the Olympia.I think it was something with Gregory became nr 1 that week


This is written by a Vocal coach Gregory had worked with
The third and last memory that comes to me is when you came to sing duets with Michel Sardou at the Olympia. I was there since I was Michel's vocal coach at this time and it was a celebration for me to see you share this mythical scene with such a great folk artist. Later, in his box, he congratulated you from the bottom of his heart because he was really amazed by your performance
Also from the vocal coach
"you kept telling me,
"As long as I can, I'll stay up and sing. To give them all hope.
And that's what you did until April 30, 2007."

I don´t understand much but he mention fatigué = tired

He didn´t sing in the chorus in the duet, maybe it was too tiresome for his bad lungs.

Donne moi le temps,:Give me time.
More time to live is what Grégory and his family, friends ,fans wanted for him.IT´s to late for him now but there are other young people waiting in the hospitals to get new organs, To get more time.
You can also think about to give some time to lonely people.It means so much.

January 2007 The show must go on.
It wasn´t obvious that Grégory could sing in this duet.
Behind the scene he got oxygen
His physiotherapist advised against performance , his girlfriend was very worried, but Grégory really wanted to do it
And how he did it,together with Patrick Bruel
[video=youtube;IhIidh1p4oc]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhIidh1p4oc&t=250s[/video]
He performed in 2 other songs that evening and it became the last tv-programme he performed in.
I suppose it´s after this he told fans he needed to rest, doctors order.
But he was still working with his album.
You know "stop existing, start living", Grégory was a person who lived and he loved life.
If he had come to the hospital a week earlier or some weeks later than he did there might have been a donator for him.
You never know with organ transplants.

I don´t have one favorite, I have many.
[video=youtube;GGb0Sb5lvu4]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGb0Sb5lvu4[/video]
Pourquoi je vis, pourquoi je meurs
Why do I live, Why do I die
Grégory said later that when he sang this it reminded him of his own life and he was happy he was able to sing the whole song.
"In the great lottery of the universe
I didn't draw the right number"
This time you don´t see a smile on his face when he has finished the song.
But he touched people´s hearts with it.
They have began to make a movie about his life and it´s called pourquoi je vis.
It will be a tribute to him and also show his life with the disease.
They will send it on TV,TF1 in september
It´s the same channel which sent StarAcademy with Grégory 15 years ago.
His parents have been asked many times before but they have said no until now.

Never ending
No water in the wine
No hour that cannot be exceeded
Winter in summer

Never rain
Only sing under the umbrellas
No law that can silence us
Our less ordinary lives

Everyday, at night
Who wouldn't fall asleep
Great occasions every night
For us, moments of glory
Sooner or later

Everything would always be beautiful
Never a shadow on the board
No never
Too bad for the real
Everything would become

I would like to see myself there
The ideal is good somewhere
This place where we could be
A less ordinary life

Believe what we want
Existence right in the eyes
I will add fuel to the fire

To please me, I will know how to make myself
Less ordinary
Less ordinary

My Eden is there, at the end of my hand
It will take nothing
Three times nothing

Everything would always be beautiful
Never a shadow on the board
No never
Too bad for the real
Everything would become

The place where, in the blink of an eye, I hope
Escape from the ordinary
Escape from the ordinary

This place where we could be
A less ordinary life

Believe what we want
Existence right in the eyes
Imagine sleepless dreams
They will look beautiful the same

To please me, I will know how to make myself
Less ordinary
Less ordinary

To please us, we can do
A less ordinary life

"You get up early one day
You watch a flower bloom
Everything in you tells you
How beautiful life is

Scorched by so much splendor
That lasts only one day
Or an hour
You say to yourself
My life but but what is it worth my life

A desire to love
Suddenly invade you
And make you want
Want to fly away

If you had to give a name
At this feeling
Who makes you climb
To the top ... "
To the top of the world
There would be no word
Quite large, fairly beautiful
But if that was happiness
But if that was happiness
But if that was happiness
Quite simply
Quite simply

Hear the song from your heart
Your voice will open
Like a flower
And you will understand
That singing is your life

And one day love
Will hug you
Then you will know
What it's worth your life

I think he couldn´t do his best here probably because he had felt bad or maybe I Should say worse than usual.Otherwise he used to know the lyrics..

Today 30th April it was 13 years since he died.This is a post from his parents and sister

Grégory Lemarchal Association
9 tim
For the past 13 years, cystic fibrosis has taken you elsewhere ... but it has not succeeded in making us live without you.
We love you so much.
You are always so present by our side.
Every day, you guide us to continue the fight, for all those, like you, who suffer from this terrible disease.

In 2006, you wrote these words that help us move forward:
"I will go to the light
To dry the tears
Of these poor children
It's my fight
I'll go to the light
To bring down the weapons of this permanent evil ... "

You had a feeling that if you had this voice, with this disease, it was not for nothing.
Your dearest wish was to drop the weapons of this cystic fibrosis.
Some may think that you have lost your fight. They’re wrong, it’s just the opposite.
Since the creation of the Grégory Lemarchal Association, a formidable chain of solidarity has been formed.

Volunteers, donors, supporters ... thanks to all of you, we can continue its fight, our fight.
A flawless commitment.
So a huge thank you to all of you.
Together, we still have so many actions to achieve.
So many young people and families to help.
So much suffering to relieve.
So many smiles to give back.

Grégory grew up with the certainty that the most beautiful way of looking at the future was to believe in his dreams.
Ours is to believe, with all our strength, that one day, cystic fibrosis will no longer tear us away from those we love.

Laurence, Leslie and Pierre Lemarchal

"I´ll go to the light"....
He didn´t know if he was going to die or get a lung transplantation so he could continue his life.
He hadn´t talked about his disease but he had plans to speak up after the transplantation.
But sadly there was no donator he died but his family continue with the fight against cystic fibrosis

Grégory wrote the lyrics for the song, it was on the album he was working on before he died.

On the verge of envy you feel
Doubt hope at every moment
Lost deep in your thoughts
You will find yourself

The reflection of the mirror becomes blurred
The stage bar hangs around your neck
And the sweetness of mind
Give you the breath of life

You take all this love that carries you
Your fingers cross to make sure
Let your weaknesses become dust
That you forget to make war on yourself

You take all this love that carries you away
Your hands cross to make sure
Let your prayers caress the black curtain
Let your eyes open because it's your evening

And then you walk down the hall
In the middle of the looks
Behind your faces you hide the flaws
And the pale complexion
You pick up the slightest spark
Of those who support you

The reflection of the ice becomes blurred
The stage fright bar hangs around your neck
And the sweetness of mind
Give you the breath of life

You take all this love that carries you
Your fingers cross to make sure
Let your weaknesses become dust
That you forget to make war on yourself

You take all this love that carries you
Your hands cross to make your prayers caress the black curtain
Let your eyes open because it's your evening
It's your evening

You take all this love that carries you away
Your fingers cross and will cause your weaknesses to become dusty
War time is far away

You take all this love that carries you away
Towards thousands of dreams no matter
When your prayers caress the black curtain
Let your eyes open because
It's your evening
