Christie Laume was born in Paris in 1942 to the Greek 'Lamboukas' family.
Although she sang for her family with her older brother Theo, she initially trained as a beautician.
Her life changed in 1962 when her brother (now known as Theo Sarapo) married legendary French singer Edith Piaf. Not only was Christie invited to live with the newly weds but also given a singing role opening several of Piafs concerts and touring with her. Piaf also gave Christie her more French-sounding name 'Laume'.
