Dalida - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

Iolanda Cristina Gigliotti (Italian: [joˈlanda krisˈtina dʒiʎˈʎɔtti]; 17 January 1933 – 3 May 1987), better known as Dalida (Egyptian Arabic: داليدا‎), was a French-Italian-Egyptian singer and actress who spent most of her career in France. She won the Miss Egypt beauty contest in 1954. She performed and recorded in 11 languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish, English, Egyptian and Levantine Arabic, Japanese, Hebrew, Dutch and Greek). In Europe she popularized musical genres like the twist (as dance), pop, disco, reggae, and, globally the raï. Her career began in 1956 and ended with her last album in 1986, half a year before her death, while continuing to hold concerts until her last days. Her suicide led to an iconic image as a tragic diva and renowned singer. According to Universal Music, she has sold 140 million albums and singles worldwide.
