The video below shows a group of musicians playing La Vie En Rose in front of the Musee D’Orcy in Paris. One octogenarian was so moved by the performance that she decided to become part of the act.
So, the next time you’re in a city and you see a street performer, do two things: listen for a while and feel better, then give them a tip. These folks do what they do for the love of it but they also have to eat. By supporting them we can be assured they’ll continue to play for our enjoyment and make our day a little more interesting.
