Joe Last Mikhael (20 years) California - U.S.A
It all started at the age of 18 years old. Lebanon, winter 1999 in the class of "Seconde". Our French teacher proposes to us that we have to choose an ideal lady to talk about of the current century. Me, who knew nothing about Dalida; Have only heard one of her songs "Salma ya salma". As my curiosity pushed me, I decided to choose her to become my lady in this project that has to be presented. Stunned by much information that I was able to collect of this Diva, I felt that through her songs I will be able to bring to my fellow class mates this Legend. The first song that entered my ears for Dalida, was "GiGi L'amorosso". Here comes the day of the presentation. I see myself standing in front of 30 students in my class, lecturing to them everything that has to do with this star from A to Z bringing her back alive through some of her songs that I played in class. Finally I discover that the French teacher that I had was and still a Big fan of Dalida. Here we are in the year of 2002 my passion for this Lady grows more each day. Dalida is the only one to bring the smile back on my lips when I am unhappy. A wish that I hope it might become true one day, is to be in France in front of the grave of the Legend and display one white rose on her tomb, representing the purity and respect of my love that I have towards her. I would like to thank Mr. B. De Besse who was kind enough to let me discover Dalida more and know the real her through her songs and clips; of course the staff of dalida.com to whom I have all the grateful thanks.
