With the help of AI, iconic French singer Edith Piaf will narrate her own story

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

You might want to call it "La Vie En Code." In the upcoming Edith Piaf biopic called "Edith," the iconic French singer, who died in 1963, will narrate her own story. Now, to do this, the film will recreate her voice and image with the help of artificial intelligence. Warner Music Group says the use of animation and archival footage will provide a modern spin on the Parisian artist's life. Hopefully, there will be no regrets.
