I was proudly invited to perform for both rallies One With Paris in Orlando and Winter Park, FL, organized and presided by the Honorary Consul of France Brigitte Dagot.
Both nights were a beautiful tribute to the victims of the #parisattacks and the courage, selflessness and resilience of the Parisians and all the people touched by this tragedy.
After the heartfelt interventions and speeches from Mayor Teresa Jacobs, Congressman John Mica, Honorary Consul of France Brigitte Dagot, and Father Vernoy,
I ended the ceremony by singing La Marseillaise, the French anthem, followed by two songs that I dedicated to humanity and the people of Paris (Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen and La vie en Rose by Edith Piaf).
After those 3 songs, because the show must go on and we will not stop enjoying life, I continued singing and entertaining the wonderful crowd that had gathered in Unity to show support for the values of the Republic: Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.
