HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Her name is O De mon Cheri. She’s not known here but in Paris she’s a rising star.
“She’s a big deal in Paris, and also in the south of France Monte Carlo, all the glamorous places you want to be in France,” said Melissa Stevens.
Cheri moved to Paris from southern France to appear on the French version of QVC.
The rising star is still reeling from last week’s terrorist attacks.
“It was crazy because I was receiving a lot of texts and e-mails, and then everyone was telling me please go to your home it’s not safe,” Cheri said.
Like many Parisians, the young singer spent last weekend in a grief stricken daze.
“We are shocked we don’t really want to go in the streets and take the metro, it’s terrible,” Cheri said.
Pictures on TV of the victims make the attacks even more heart wrenching.
“Most of them are really young with children, and when you know how it happened it’s terrible,” said Cheri.
Cheri set aside her grief and fear of flying in the wake of the terrorist attacks to perform at Thursday night’s Beaujolais 2015.
“Which signifies the world wide release of Beaujolais Nouveau wine all around the world,” Stevens said.
Now more than ever, this rising star says she wants to share with others the French spirit and love of life.
All proceeds of Beaujolais 2015 benefit the French-American Chamber of Commerce.
It’s at Silver Street Studios Thursday November 19th from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
