After the very famous song Mon amant de Saint-Jean (my lover from Saint-Jean), in 1942, Lucienne Delyle became the most popular French female singer of the 1950s.
She achieved her greatest popularity during the 1950s. In 1953, Bruno Coquatrix invited her and Gilbert Bécaud to headline the gala opening concert at the Paris Olympia. Toward the end of the 1950s she suffered from leukemia and her career declined rapidly. In 1960 she gave a final series of concerts on the stage of the Bobino music hall. She died in Monte Carlo in 1962.
