Paul was born as Krikor Baghdadlian on July 10, 1953 in Aleppo, Syria, to Armenian parents Baruyr Baghdadlian and Arousiag Baghdadlian. He had a brother named Aram Baghdadlian. He had great success in singing modern Armenian music after moving to Beirut, Lebanon. In 1965, at the age of 12 his mother died (his father eventually remarried and settled in Pasadena, CA). Struggling to live his daily life, he started performing to make his living.
During the early 1970s, Paul Baghdadlian was known as Paul the Prince and was singing only English songs. After listening to fellow singer of the Armenian diaspora music Harout Pamboukjian, however, Paul Baghadadlian started to sing in Armenian, mostly performing love songs. Having achieved great success in Beirut and the Middle East in this new phase of his career, he moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1977 for an international career. In Los Angeles he produced hundreds of recordings, mostly ballads, most of which he sang in Armenian, though he sang in a number of languages, most notably Arabic and English. He often toured the major centers of the Armenian diaspora and Armenia.
Baghdadlian died on June 28, 2011 after a long battle with lung cancer. He died in Glendale Adventist Medical Center, where he was being hospitalized. The cause of death was ruled to be respiratory failure due to the cancer. He left behind three children: sons Paul Baghdadlian Jr and Christopher Baghdadlian from his first wife Ani Baghdadlian, and one daughter, Virginie Baghdadlian from his second wife Dzaghig Florence Baghdadlian.
