Knowing no French I required no translation in any case, the sound was everything! She captured me as you also do! The real talent here is Jean and "Here on Earth" bringing us, in wondrous depth, the finest of the arts! Thank you! You and your show overwhelm with joy its listeners in beauty and insights. You are the treasure presenting treasures to our minds and souls."
