French singer Edith Piaf died 50 years ago - and Paris is gearing up for a big celebration. She's seen something of a revival since the 2007 release of a film about her life, La Vie en Rose. The commemorations kicked off yesterday afternoon with a church mass in her honour. The service is a contract to how the Catholic Church originally dealt with the singer's death.
