    Our founder, Givonna Joseph, and singer Aria Mason (mother and daughter) were featured on this documentary that aired in France on Feb. 19, 2014. This episode of "Le Grand Tour" is about France's connections to Quebec and Louisiana... At St. Augustine Church, in the Treme, where their ancestors worshipped, they sang the Ave Maria in individual verses in Créole- as Ms. Joseph's great grandmother used to pray. But they only show the final part in latin. They were glad to tell a different story about Créoles and Opera in 19th Century New Orleans in the interviews. You may see more clips on their website at www.legrandtour.fr
