La Vie en Pause

During the first lockdown I wrote alternative lyrics to Edith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose,” an ironic love song for the corona virus, or a battle song for us all. To encourage and give hope to everyone who is suffering from the corona crisis, I made a little video of myself singing the song while comping on the piano. 

During the second lockdown the song got a sequel! It was recorded by Ricciotti Ensemble and Dutch singer and actress Ellen ten Damme, and for the occasion arranged by Konrad Koselleck.

And for the video of the Ellen ten Damme version we did some magic on my balcony. Bloopers included!
