A portrait of the French singer France Gall published on the official Eurovision Song Contest website taken by an unknown photographer 

Gall represented Luxembourg in the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest. She performed ‘Poupée de cire, poupée de son’ (Wax Doll, Rag Doll), which was Luxembourg’s second-ever winning entry.

The Guardian reported that Gall passed away Sunday morning at a Paris hospital.

Edoardo Grassi‏, head of the French Eurovision delegation, said on Twitter that Gall helped the, at the time burgeoning, competition burnish its reputation.

Alexander Plant, fan in Canada, tweeted on 7 January:

“You represented Luxembourg in 1965 with class. I love your song and it will always remain one of my favourites. Thank you for the music.”
