Ever since I was little, I used to always listen to my grandparents sing those songs and even though I never exactly understood what they were about, it intrigued me, I suppose that collaborated a ton with the inspiration for the album.”
The single, “Christmas Evening” is the first song penned by Marie-Juliette, and tells the Nativity story, the journey of the Three Wise men to Jesus Christ. It was officially released on January of 2018, after various trips to London, England for recording.
