Rue Franck Pourcel07.12.2018
On December 6th, the city of Marseille in France named a street after renowned composer Franck Pourcel, who died in 2000. One of our most successful Sonoton composers, he is known worldwide as a pioneer and “inventor" of Easy Listening music, with dozens of writing credits to his name. Perhaps most famous is the Pourcel composition, the French song “Chariot", better known today as the hit song "I Will Follow Him”, covered in the hugely successful film “Sister Act”. In addition, Pourcel was the Eurovision Song Contest Conductor in France for many years. His outstanding contribution is now honored with this beautiful gesture, Rue Franck Pourcel. Listen to his Sonoton Music compositions here.
