Stacey Kent— jazz singer extraordinaire, gorgeous voice, super smart, CUTE hair— she’s got a lot to offer. And her latest album, The Changing Lights, comes out in America today. Je suis enthousiaste!*
Having lived and studied in Paris, like her Grandfather before her, Stacey grew up steeped in French music and literature. … Her 2003 album ‘The Boy Next Door’, reached GOLD STATUS in France and her new album includes some of her favourite French songs, this time by songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg.
French songs! If you’re still searching for a valentine for your sweetheart, this could be perfect. Here’s a little sample:
*Note: Speaking of sweethearts, I have learned that to say “je suis excité” conveys a more private form of excitement en français. Appropriate for the bedroom, not for the concert hall.
