In the first clip, Christine And The Queens (real name Héloïse Letissier) performed an acoustic version of her recent single ‘People, I’ve Been Sad’ while being followed around by a camera operator on a squeaky bicycle. The videos are to be broadcast from Ferber studios in Paris.

Letissier is not the only musician taking the opportunity to perform to fans while the COVID-19 pandemic develops.

Coldplay‘s Chris Martin live-streamed a special performance from his home yesterday (March 16). Martin told his followers on an Instagram Live stream that he and his band were meant to be together at the time, but explained that they were all “stuck in different countries” as a result of the global pandemic.

Dubbed ‘Together At Home’, the 30-minute broadcast saw the frontman take song requests from fans and give shout outs as he sat behind his piano.
