If you’re anything like us, you’re missing your regular drip of live music to keep you going. Luckily, lots of mini-concerts are still happening online, and we can tune into to get an intimate musical fix.
Héloïse Adélaïde Letissier known professionally as Christine and the Queen is a French singer/songwriter with amazing range and musical talent. This impromptu concert was given from Studio Ferber in Paris on March 16th of 2020. I hope you enjoy her raw voice and vocal talent as much as I do.
In the week leading up to 19th January, in the UK, there were almost 40,000 new COVID cases. And, on that day alone, 1,358 deaths.

Setting up the drill once again, there was no option but to sit it out, and by midnight they were finally inside the vault. In the corner stood a large, modern safe.
“Crikey”, said Albert.
“Well, jeez, I ain’t seen nuffin like this before, Del. What did it say on the plan? A 2400? Well, look, this is a SafeAsHouses 6000. Jesus, boy, where’d you get those plans? Off a fucking market stall?”
