Jean Sablon

Jean Sablon (Nogent-sur-Marne 25 March 1906 – Cannes 24 February 1994) was a French singer, songwriter and actor. He was one of the first French singers to immerse himself in jazz. The man behind several songs by such diverse names as Mireille, Jean Nohain and Charles Trenet, he was the first to use a microphone on a French stage in 1936. Star of vinyl and the radio, he left France in 1937 to make up a contract with NBC in the United States. His televised shows made him a huge star on American television. Henceforth the most international of French singers among his contemporaries, he became an ambassador of French songwriting and dedicated his career to touring internationally, often returning to France to appear on stage. His sixty-one year career came to an end in 1984.
