“Hey Man, Nice C’est Comme Ça” by LES RITA MITSOUKO Vs. FILTER

Filter-Mitsouko

And now, a mash up.

“Heard It Through The Stronger Grapevine” by KELLY CLARKSON Vs. GLADYS KNIGHT & THE PIPS

Heard It Stronger Grapevine
These are very difficult days we are wading through, and I imagine complicating this “new normal” with a divorce is something akin to having delicate diarrhea during a violent earthquake.

I’m no Hollywood reporter, but it must be tougher when you are a celebrity, especially if you’re one of the performers featured in this medley.

And now, a mash up.
