Héloïse Letissier (aka Christine And The Queens) is a force to be reckoned with. A dynamic yet soulful performer; full of purpose, tenacity, beauty and artistry. She is not like any pop star you’ve encountered before. Her lyrics (recorded in both English and French) address the complex questions of gender and sexuality, relationships and identity, all underpinned by melodic synths, beautiful refrains and brain-clutching beats. And, boy oh boy, those unique performances – marrying pop music with a type of theatre that only Christine & the Queens can provide. Sharp and iconic choreography – true storytelling with music and bodies – they are as unique as they are captivating.
And guess what, Australia? She is coming to our shores this March! Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney get to finally experience this spectacular performer in the flesh for the first time.
Héloïse uses the entire canvas of her layered artistry, and she is such an exciting one to watch. Just check out her live performances on renowned international TV shows such as the Graham Norton Show (this performance of ‘Tilted’ is the first I saw of Christine and the Queens and what made me fall head over heels), The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Later with Jools Holland. Her brilliant video clips and live performances are a true celebration of music and dance, bringing that heartfelt human spirit onto the stage.
Critically acclaimed, Christine And The Queens was nominated for Best International Female Solo Artist at the 2017 UK BRIT Awards, alongside Beyoncé, Solange and SIA. Héloïse has also graced the cover of Time Magazine’s ‘Next Generation Leaders’ issue, where she was proclaimed as, ‘one of the most influential young creatives in the world’.
With her second studio album, ‘CHRIS’, Héloïse has cemented her place as a masterful pop performer, continuing to utilise powerful choreography and style to explore ideas of unabashed female desire via her alter-ego, Chris, all in a phenomenal live show, described by Chugg Entertainment as, ‘being drenched in sweat and vulnerability’.
