Natasha St-Pier releases an album on Joan of Arc: a breath of fresh air!

Let’s take a break, if you will, from the depressing daily news. This time, no burning cars, club gang rapes, bullied children, gratuitous killings for a look. Nothing of that. Today, let’s talk about Natasha St-Pier instead. Some of you may know that the Canadian (but not Quebec) singer is Catholic and that the recent years of her career have been dedicated to honoring her faith. After notably performing “Vivre d’amour”, inspired by the words of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, in front of the pope francis in 2013, in 2018 she released an album, To love is to give everything, dedicated to the saint and set to music by the group Glorious. will follow To believein 2020, and I only have my soulin 2021. As talented as she is beautiful, Natasha St-Pier exudes something healthy and sincere, which her moving and committed records echo.

And now Natasha St-Pier has released a new album. On September 30, his latest opus, soberly baptized Jeanne, went on sale; it is dedicated to Saint Joan of Arc. We find there the same freshness, the same grace and the same emotion as in his previous records. Special mention for the clip of “Jeanne”, precisely, a song by Laurent Voulzy that Natasha St-Pier sings in a church, with in particular a sequence where we see her on her knees, sword in hand. In this beautiful album, which sings the life of the Maid of Orléans, the singer has also, for the first time, written and composed.

Natasha St-Pier is following an astonishing trajectory, far from the beaten track and from conventional indignation. Discreet about her charitable commitments, her friendships and her personal life, she arrived in France at the age of twenty, made her classical debut and then made radical choices, against the grain – artistic choices, in short. These naturally encouraged her to talk about her faith, which she will tell, in the press, having put under a bushel for a long time, by an excess of what the Church herself no longer dares to call “human respect “.

Committed discs, really? Isn’t the word reserved for the climate, for battered women (please, enough of this term “violence-against-women”, an involuntary Claudelian parody of the announcement made to Marie)? And, anyway, isn’t it a bit strong to designate an artistic production? Let’s say it again: to be Catholic, in show biz, is already to be committed. And to sing his faith in three consecutive albums is to take quite a risk. Moreover, we haven’t heard much about these three discs, in the media, while the voice of Natasha St-Pier has lost none of its quality. It was more promising to sing “You will find” with Pascal Obispo, probably. This courage alone deserves to be saluted. And the albums in question are very successful.

So there you have it, dear friends: like many of us, and like the author of these lines, perhaps you need a breath of fresh air, innocence and grandeur in a stale atmosphere in the midst of which one searches in vain for a window. I suggest this album, the idea of ​​which is a pleasure to see and the content good to hear. There will be many laughers to find all of this neuneu, childish or naive. They won’t listen to the album and realize they were wrong. We can also remind them that the Blessed Virgin generally preferred to speak to children from very simple backgrounds rather than to winners of the start-up nation. It is to these children that we must resemble, with a first degree which is so often lacking in our era of derision, that of “last man” of Nietzsche who, because he has “his little pleasure for the day and his little pleasure for the night”claims he has “Invented Happiness”. Happiness, contrary to social networks, the hyperstimulation of our poor lives and the permanent one-upmanship, is in simple and sincere things. Like this little disc.

We want to say thanks to the author of this write-up for this remarkable content
