Yolanda Cristina Gigliotti[ (17 January 1933 – 3 May 1987), better known as Dalida (Arabic: داليدا‎‎), was an Italian then French singer and actress who was born in Egypt. She performed and recorded in more than ten languages, including, French, Italian, Greek, Spanish, German, Arabic, English, Japanese, Hebrew and Dutch. She spent most of her career in France and acquired French citizenship in 1961 upon marriage, while maintaining her original Italian one.

Twice honoured with the Oscar mondial du succès du disque (the "World Oscar of Recording Success"), she is the only European singer to have won this award more than once. Her 30-year 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. She received more than 70 gold records and was the first singer to receive platinum and diamond discs. She sold more than 170 million albums worldwide.

"Gondolier" is a French language popular song.

The music was written by Pete De Angelis, the words by Jean Broussolle. It was published in 1957. It was popularized by Dalida.

The song was rendered into English as "With All My Heart" and became a hit for Jodie Sands in the United States and Petula Clark in the United Kingdom.
