Damien Robitaille was not expecting this when he had the idea of doing a song per day at the beginning of the confinement. But the author-composer is already up to 78 videos that are shared on the social networks and his marathon is still going on.
Who would have thought that Damien Robitaille was also versatile ? For more than two months, the singer publishes each day a video where we can see the interpret of the songs from her repertoire, but also often times other artists.
It was notably seen to Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen), Knives Out (Radiohead), Baby One More Time (Britney Spears), Mamma Mia (ABBA), Cheap Thrills (Sia) and I love you like crazy (Robert Charlebois).
The singer sharing his interpretations on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok. He therefore spends part of the day to work on his music videos.
“I wake up pretty early and the first thing I do is to set up and publish the song recorded the day before,” he said. Subsequently, I take a moment to talk with my daughters who live in Spain. Then I walk the dog. In the afternoon, it is the selection of the song the next day. Usually, I finished filming late in the evening. “
