Chanson Surprise

Micheline sings for you remotely!

Beautiful people, let me be your musical present! I will sing your favorite song, as a surprise, on the phone (voice only or with image via whatsapp, Zoom or Facetime) to your friends, family or loved ones. Well known songs, chansons, all different styles or a song of your choice and any time of day. Some examples: 'Milord', 'Proud Mary', 'Happy birthday' ... My garden is your stage to surprise the world!

Do you live closeby (South of France) then I will even bring along my delicious home made apple pie for a Chanson Serenade in front of your house, just like Romeo!

I'd love to sing at your intimate party, organise a concert online for your friends or in your garden or spacious living room. Support live music and invite me!

Happy Diwali to you all!

A new song by Sunny & Micheline


 Diwali thumbnail Sunny Micheline


Today is the great Celebration of Light: Diwali. Lanterns and candles everywhere!

We recorded this song, based on the lyrics of the famous poet Kabir, in half a day. In the morning I met with Sunny on his roof terrace, in the afternoon we recorded in our garden under the cherry tree. One live take, otherwise the sun would've been gone.

I'm happy to share this almost snapshot with you. Afterwards I added in the subtitles, the text, explanation and translation - something I learned during Covid, how to edit with iMovie. 

Enjoy and Merry X-mas!
