The Greatest Belgian (2)

According to the French speaking community of Belgium, the Greatest Belgian of all time is Jacques Brel. Actually, he was of Flemish origin, singing in French, living in Brussels.

I wonder whether Brel is really better known abroad than the Flemish Greatest Belgian. Since he performed in France and in most of the French speaking world, I guess the answer will be yes. By the way, Father Damian was third.

I do know Jacques Brel, and he certainle is far more known here in Spain (even though among young people Brel also isn't particularly well-known) than Father Damian, let alone in France.
I guess I'll have to find out who father Damian was...
