NEW VIDEO from Paris! Refrain de Mon Enfance

I’m delighted to announce my newest video, Refrain de Mon Enfance, a classic, beautiful French chanson written by my great-uncle, Eugène Cavos, in 1954 in Paris.

The song was lost for decades and once found, magically reunited me with long-lost family in Europe. I was so moved by reconnecting with my family that I included the song on my album, Muse.

In the video you’ll see old family photos of my mother when she was a child growing up in Paris. Can you recognize where in Paris we filmed?
