She’s the Swiss singer of Mauritian origin who sang “Time to Shine” at Eurovision 2015.
And over the weekend Switzerland’s Mélanie René proved that she’s still shining when she performed a heartfelt cover of Adele’s “Someone Like You” inside of London’s St. Pancras International Station.
The station, which is home to the Eurostar which connects London to Paris, is filled with hundreds of travellers, shoppers and diners at any given moment.
But Mélanie, who met with wiwibloggs at the station for a candid interview, had them literally stopping in their tracks as she worked the public piano for an impromptu musical session.
Wearing an easy-does it hoodie, a white t-shirt and a pair of form-fitting blue jeans, Mélanie nailed the off-duty model look while casually slaying one of the most well-known songs of this millennium.
If you watch the video until the end, you’ll see onlookers filming her performance on their smartphones, snapping pics and generally admiring her talent — and her courage for sitting down in a public space to tickle the ivories while also singing.
The crowd wasn’t limited to those standing just in front of The White Company — they circled her 360 degrees, showing just what a draw her voice is.
Mélanie is currently in London recording new music, which she tells us all about in our forthcoming interview on wiwibloggs.
The 26-year-old stunner won Switzerland’s Eurovision selection Die Grosse Entshcheidungsshow in 2015.
In addition to singing her Eurovision entry “Time to Shine” on that show, Mélanie also delivered a spine-tingling cover of Sia’s “Chandelier” that helped secure her victory over her five competitors, including pre-show favourites Timebelle, who went on to sing at Eurovision 2017.
