It is impossible to talk about La Jerome’s career without mentioning her work on three albums of the jazz legend Marc Moulin: Top Secret, Entertainment and I am you. In 2001, he spotted it in the TV Show « For Glory » broadcast on the RTBF and fell under the spell of his voice. When she was only 24 years old, he offered her to release an album with him as a singer-songwriter. Without exactly knowing what it meant, the one that was still called Véronique and then Christa accepted.
In any case, his meeting with Christa had brought Marc Moulin the desire to compose again. Christa: “We worked on various songs, but he wanted to give me the time to find my way, to mature. “Some themes, some ideas, were re-used on Marc’s albums. The first album’s success – he was hoping to sell maybe 5000 copies – surprised and encouraged him to go further. This meant that Christa’s album would have to wait. He thought he would have time to finish the project. One of the most beautiful examples of what the album could have been is the ballad “Promised land”, often played in concert but never included on an album.
