World French Singer Barbara Weldens Dies On Stage While Performing”

Barbara Weldens, an upcoming French singer, has collapsed and died while performing in a concert at a festival, BBC reports. Weldens, 35, had been on stage in a church in the picturesque village of Goudron, in the Lot region of the south-west, when she suffered an apparent cardiac arrest.

Paramedics arrived at approximately 12:30am but were unable to revive her.

Local media reports indicate Weldens was reportedly electrocuted but the BBC reports police are still investigating the cause of death. Waldens had cited Brel as one of her most important creative influences.

They "will see in the next weeks if a requalification is necessary", the prosecutor's office said, according to Europe 1. She was the victor of the Pic d'Or of the Chanson de Tarbes.

Weldens was an up-and-coming singer and won a young talent award in the Jacques Brel Young Talent Competition past year.
