Régina Zylbergerg, Singer And "Queen Of The Night" Dies At 92.

The disappearance of a “queen of the night.” Régine, a singer and actress who ruled the nightlife world for a long time with nightclubs in France and abroad, died on Sunday, May 1 at the age of 92, according to her granddaughter, Daphné Rotcajg.

“Régine left us peacefully on May 1 at 11 a.m.” in Paris, said Daphné Rotcajg. “The queen of the night is leaving: closure due to a long and great career”, read a statement that was written, at the request of the family, by comedian Pierre Palmade, a close friend of Régine for many years.

“Part with her disco ball and her warm and reassuring cheekiness”, Régine “had made the stars of the whole world dance for more than 30 years in her nightclubs”, the statement continues.

The singer Renaud, who wrote several titles for her, considered that she was the last historical representative of French songs, known in particular for “La grande Zoa”, “Azzurro”, “Les p’tits papiers” or even “Patchouli Chinchilla”.

She owned up to 22 nightclubs around the world that bore her first name, beginning with the legendary “Chez Régine” near the Champs-Elysées. According to Pierre Palmade’s text, her first name has thus become “the emblem of crazy nights until dawn, herself dancing on the floor until closing time.”

Régine Zylbergerg was born to Polish Jewish parents on December 26, 1929 in Anderlecht, Belgium. She escaped deportation in 1941 in Aix-en-Provence thanks to non-Jewish Frenchmen.

She has also appeared in a dozen films, including “Jeu de massacres” by Alain Jessua, “Robert et Robert” by Claude Lelouch, and “Les ripoux” by Claude Zidi.

After passing through the Olympia, she sang at Carnegie Hall in New York in the 1960s, becoming one of the few French women to have conquered America, alongside Edith Piaf. She also appeared in Bobino. “My greatest joy would be that people still listen to my songs in fifty years,” she said in 2020.

“I am very proud that some have become classics of the variety. (…) My first job was discotheques. For a long time, singing was just a hobby. Today, I realize that the scene was the most important in my life”, declared the singer and businesswoman.
