PressPause: COVID Ingenuity From Paris with Love

An upcoming essay from Mr Pete talks a lot about #COVIDCreativity and #Ingenuity. It is a great piece that you’ll enjoy reading / interacting with (in our humble opinion). Meanwhile, we’d like to provide you with an appetizer.

Mr Pete was impressed with the response to Melody Gardot’s digital invitation for contributions to her new music video “From Paris with Love.”
The song is part of her latest album “Sunset in the Blue.”

See for yourself here.

Mr Pete remarked:

Melody Gardot, who I’ve written about before here at Jedemi, pretty much finished her new album right when the pandemic crisis hit. She knew the World was sad and hurting— people were suffering with heartache that she often sang about in her music. She also knew that the World needed to celebrate life and cherish those moments (if few) that we all share. She sent out a digital invitation for contributions to her new music video “From Paris with Love.”

The World accepted her Invitation…
Mr Pete continued: I smile thinking about the response: There were Musicians and Performers, lone people and people in groups. There were People with Lovers, People with Families and People with their Pets.

Many were blowing kisses or holdings signs of where they were from. All had smiles and it appeared that their faces lit up with happiness and hope.

“Maybe one day I will see you
Maybe one day I will see you soon
With love, my love
A kiss beneath the moon…”

And here are the lyrics in a video format.
