More than 500 people today around 10 am gathered in front of the Church of Our Lady of Grace in Sint-Pieters-Woluwe to say goodbye to the Belgian singer Maurane. The funeral service began at 11 am. Also many French-speaking artists brought a last salute to the singer, who last week at the age of 57 passed away.
Outside the church were large screens drawn up to which photos of the singer were seen. “It was a fantastic and very funny woman. I have often laughed. They had one of the most beautiful voices in the world, perhaps the most beautiful”, said the French singer and violinist Catherine Lara. Among the French artists Michel Fugain, Zazie and Pascal Obispo lined up at the start, just like Lara Fabian, Sandra Kim and Long yo-Yo.
