They have made a biopic about Grégory´s life It will be broadcast on television in Belgium and France in September, first and 7th.It´s called "Pourqois je vis"= Why do I live. His parents have been asked several times about it and they have said no until now.
You can see a part of it here if you scroll down.

It´s playback in the video it´s Grégory's voice
I think it´s about living with severe cystic fibrosis.
He managed to live life, to go for his dreams despite all medicins he had to take and all these visits to the hospital.
And not knowing if he would live another year..

This is the real Grégory, he won people´s hearts with this interpretation of the song

It was 14 years ago Grégory died
The last letter read by his father.

"If I should no longer wake up in this case tell all these patients who have often drawn hope in me not to lose it, that they beat even harder with much more force, also let know the enormous respect that I had for the medical profession which took care of me throughout my life"

"Also tell all my fans that an additional star will continue to shine for them, my family, my friends that my heart is filled with their love and above all tell my little angel that I love her"
"Finally, do your utmost to raise awareness and convince the attention of healthy people to the need for self-giving, to the incredible number of lives that could be saved if everyone's conscience allowed it.
Maybe I will join a stage where I will sing among the angels, in which case let me not worry anymore, it's funny I'm not afraid anymore it's strange."

His father wrote this "Deprived of words, we will never forget the last look you gave us before you fell asleep for good, you seemed to be telling us let me sleep, I can't stand it anymore, and I hope to see you again when I wake up with new lungs and quickly if possible because they are expecting me for my second album"

(It was too much pain for him so he was sedated the day before he died.He knew he could die but he had plans for the future too.)

It´s his birthday today, 38 years.
When he was at the hospital waiting for the transplantation his manager visited him and brought him a piece of music. Grégory wrote the lyrics for it and was eager to
get new lungs so he could do the song.But we know it never happened.

10 years later the song was recorded by his friend Patrick Fiori, it was Grégory's parents who wanted Patrick to sing it, so it isn´t Grégory who sings in the video but it´s his lyrics

as usual jus a google translation

They run through our lives
They lift us up to infinity
And bring us out of the night
They fill our hearts
We move from within

Often lead us to sweetness
A lost gaze, a broken man
A child wanted, a life saved
There is always a tear to invite itself

No matter what we see
No matter what we go through
She always gives us the choice
To get out of boredom
No matter what we see
No matter what we go through
She always gives us the choice

They are hidden in the words
They are the reflections of our ills
End up making us more beautiful
They are sometimes despair
Often fit in our drawers
But still leave us hope
A lost gaze, a broken man
A child wanted, a life saved
There is always a tear to invite itself

No matter what we see
No matter what we go through
She always gives us the choice
To get out of boredom
No matter what we see
No matter what we go through
She always gives us the choice
To get out of boredom

Emotions are whispered
We don't always dare to show them
They bring us together to love each other better
To love each other better

I don´t know what they talked about but it´s nice to see Gregory smile and laugh.

Somehow they managed to do the rehearsals and they performed it together in the semi-final
