What’s nice about having your own blog is being able to write what you want and I want to say that I am so proud of Geraldine! She has an amazing voice and her take on the hit song The Show Must Go On by the English rock band Queen is fantastic! Who would have thought that when she was a kid playing outside my apartment window in the Cour Saint-Pierre that she would one day be performing on stage and screen and giving rock concerts?! I did!
Why not! Afterall, her father was a world famous magician from Argentina, and considered one of the best; and her mother had been a “petit rat” as a child in the Opéra de Marseille and later became a professional dancer. Before the death of her father, her mother also became a magician, and an excellent one at that! France (her mom, and a close friend of mine) has performed so many tricks for me over the years where I’m standing in front of her, behind her, and practically on top of her head and I still don’t know how she does it!
Anyway, back to Geraldine! I’ve watched her grow through the years, even after she left Paris and went to Madrid in search of stardom. And good for her, she found it! She’s performed on stage in hit musicals, in films, on television, and now in concert! Most recently her presentation of Innocence: The Show Must Go On has received rave reviews! As I’ve said, she’s terrific and I’m really proud of her, but don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!
