Late legends Miles Davis and Edith Piaf are to be honoured this summer (Jun12) with an international stamp tribute.
Officials at the U.S. Postal Service and their counterparts at France’s La Poste will issue new Forever stamps saluting the two stars.
Davis' daughter Cheryl is thrilled about the tribute, telling WENN, "On behalf of the Miles Davis family, we are honoured that the U.S. Postal Service and La Poste are paying homage to the timeless legacy of Sir Miles Dewey Davis."
Both musicians tasted massive success in both France and America - American Davis was awarded the Grande Medaille de Vermeil by the city of Paris in 1989, which was presented to him by Jacques Chirac, then mayor and later President of France.
French singer Piaf was beloved in America- the biopic La Vie En Rose earned actress Marion Cotillard an Oscar for her portrayal of the artist.
Both stamps will feature classic black and white photographs of the legends.
