Juliette Gréco (French: [ʒyljɛt ɡʁeko]; 7 February 1927 – 23 September 2020) was a French actress and popular chanson singer.[1]

In 1949, she began working with composer Miles Davis. That same year, she began a new singing career with a number of well-known French writers writing lyrics; Raymond Queneau's "Si tu t’imagines" was one of her earliest songs to become popular.

In the late 1960s she featured in the TV serial Belphegor, Phantom of the Louvre.[2]

Gréco died on 23 September 2020 in Ramatuelle, France at the age of 93.[3][4]
