Most songs by Benedictine Monks, Edith Piaf, Gypsy Kings, Josephine Baker, Mistinguett, James Brown, Marc Anthony, Andrea Bocelli, etc are not in English.

The nuns who taught French at Madonna High school in Weirton, WV made us sing "Dominique."

I can still remember the words.

It was both LaBelle & Aguilera and both were No. 1 hits... but 26 years apart. BTW, I did state "and probably some others" to indicate there could have been more artists that recorded the song! http://tinyurl.com/3cxfw7s
