Raymond Lévesque, a Quebecois singer, composer, songwriter, poet, writer, playwright, and actor, died on Monday due to CoVid-19. He was 92 ears old. His most famous piece of work will always be his song "Quand les Hommes Vivront d'Amour", composed in 1956.
He became deaf in the mid-1980s, and subsequently devoted himself to writing, particularly poetry and theater. Hospitalized in Montreal after contracting Covid-19, this multi-talented artist passed away on Monday.
