So after the announcement of the death of Uncle David on Tuesday February 16, the singer shared her thoughts with the artist who died at the age of 53, to whom she was close. “I can not believe it my friend”, she began in the caption of a picture of the interpreter of Everyone his road.

Uncle David had lived in Moselle for several years

And it is in the city of Longeville-lès-Saint-Avold that the singer spent his last years with his wife and four children. A simple life, which he cherished enormously. “I first arrived in Sarrebourg about ten years ago because at the time I needed to get closer to Basel for professional reasons,” Uncle David confided in the columns of the East Republican a few years ago. . I have family in Woippy, near Metz, but it was mainly because I felt good here. ” The singer, born in Reunion, even found that “the Moselle, it’s exotic”.
