“It’s crazy in fact. It is a privilege to have the time to be with family, to rediscover who the people are with whom one lives, ” she says. Often cause of our lives, of our emergencies and our needs of survival, we could only exchange the minimum.”
The day where everything changed
A few days before prime minister Francois Legault announces the break of Quebec, with the closure of shops and businesses are non-essential, Lara Fabian is in his studio located in his house in montreal with Moh Deneb to work on the album of Felix Lemelin (ex-participant in the program The Voice).
“My daughter comes home from school and she said to me : “You have not seen the news. Schools are being shut down from tomorrow. It seems like the world is going down””, she says.

If his house is located in Quebec, Lara doesn’t forget his family in Europe, in Belgium and in Italy. “We talk all the time, we skype, is text. It is even closer than before,” said Lara, who still finds the distance difficult.
