Ottawa born singer-songwriter Paul Anka is the recipient of one of the highest honours one can receiver in France.
The now 81-year old entertainer is now an Officer in the French Order of Merit after President Emanuel Macron bestowed the honour in Paris.
The Order of Merit is generally reserved for French citizens and Anka calls receiving it a “very special moment.’
By the way, Paul Anka continues to play sold-out venues including packed houses in France on his recent European tour.
