Happy Birthday : presentation

The history of the song “Happy Birthday” dates back to the 19th century. The lyrics were written in 1893 by sisters Mildred and Patty Hill, two American schoolteachers, for a song called “Good Morning to All”. The melody was simple and easy to sing, making it an ideal song for children.Over time, the song was adapted for different occasions, including birthdays. The lyrics “Joyeux anniversaire” were added, probably by French speakers, to create the French version of the song.The song became extremely popular around the world, becoming a universal symbol of celebration and sharing. However, the song’s copyright was controlled by Warner/Chappell Music, which demanded usage rights whenever the song was used in commercial settings, such as in movies or on television.In 2015, a judge ruled that the song’s copyright was in fact invalid, as the melody was actually in the public domain. This ruling allowed the song to be used for free in all contexts, which was welcomed by many artists and creators.Today, “Happy Birthday” remains one of the best known and most loved songs in the world. It is sung in all languages and countries, becoming a timeless tradition to celebrate the birthdays of our loved ones.
