Rendez-vous with Destiny – DDAY77’s Concert in Normandy in Sainte Mère L’Eglise: Rose the Princess of the Environment and the U.S Army bands
Rose the Princess of the Environment and the U.S Army Bands honor the soldiers of WW2 on the Normandy Beaches
During the coronavirus crisis in 2020, Radio Gaga World had launched a challenge to the musicians of the world: playing music from home to send love to people. Several countries had participated, among those France (with Rose the Princess of the Environment, from the rockin’1000 band) and America (well represented by the U.S Army).
To follow in this line, Radio Gaga World promoted a new collaboration between France and America on the occasion of the commemorations of DDAY77 on the 5th and 6th of June 2021.
Considering that there were still some restrictions due to the covid19’s crisis in France, it was decided that DDAY77’s concert will be online and released during the events of DDAY in Sainte Mère L’Eglise and Normandy.
