In your hands the rainbow colors, really make you smile.

    Hi,

    I’m writing you from Belgium…
    My mothertongue is French and we’ve got that song in French too…
    (Si tu as de la joie au coeur, claque des doigts… etc…).
    I like your new version, sounds great!
    Thanks for this, and your newsletter, which I always enjoy…
    Have a nice day,
