It was unthinkable to say goodbye to him elsewhere

Dani had her communion in this cathedral and we were all baptized there. Our father, our mother and our sister Jeanne were all buried here. We lived right next door, every time Dani passed by she would come in and put out a candle. 15 days ago she sang again for Françoise Quinta in front of the cathedral. It was unthinkable to say goodbye to him elsewhere“said Véronique Graule, another sister of Dani.

A tribute to Paris too

The singers Etienne Daho and Cali should notably be present during this ceremony which will surely bring together a lot of people. The bishopric of Perpignan-Elne, whose departing Bishop Monsignor Norbert Turini will therefore not be able to bless Dani goodbye, has also warned the prefecture, which should deploy a discreet security service but adapted to the Perpignan crowd.

As for Paris, a tribute should also be paid to the artist on October 1, his birthday. A mass will a priori be celebrated at the Saint-Roch church, not far from the rue de Rivoli where Dani lived for a long time.
