We don’t often have the opportunity to sing our heart out except maybe under the shower !

For Christmas we have thought of a way to remedy that and give you a chance to perform like an artist with a microphone and a song of your choice in a homemade variety show.

If luckily you have a good voice we will be delighted to hear you or if you don’t, it can be funny, you can still entertain us and we can enjoy a good welcome laugh ! If you prefer to tell a joke or two, great, you might discover your hidden talent.

It won’t be a competition, there are no rewards except for the pleasure of entertaining us for a brief moment… So please, find the words of one of your favourite songs, let us know that you will participate with the title so that we can find an accompanying music playing along… or anything else suitable.
