LOS ANGELES, Calif. (A.W.)—Legendary Armenian singer Paul Baghdadlian passed away on June 28 after a long illness.
Baghdadlian began his career in the Middle East in the 1970′s, later broadening his reach to the U.S., Europe and beyond. He has written and produced hundreds of hit songs, mainly love ballads that have captivated Armenians across the globe.
Baghdadlian’s Facebook page was inundated with condolences. “You will always be around in our homes and our hearts… You’re irreplaceable!” wrote one fan. “Paul, I grew up listening to your beautiful ballads, new and exciting pop songs, and always looked forward to seeing you live… You were a beautiful person and will be missed,” wrote another.
In an interview in Beirut last year, Baghdadlian said that one of his happiest moments was hearing that two Armenians had gotten married after meeting at one of his concerts.
“It is with a clear conscience that I tell you now that I love and worship Armenia, my fatherland, even more than someone who was born and lived there,” he said on another occasion.
Baghdadlian concluded his concerts with the song “Hayortik,” which calls on Armenians to not forget their mother tongue. In his performances, he often repeated, “Love your nation, love your fatherland, love the red, blue, and orange [the Armenian tricolor flag].”
