Wednesday morning suggested Blanche her number and a corresponding video clip City Lights also officially to the press and to the world.

The number City Lights is a modern pop song, written by Pierre Dumoulin that singer and guitarist in the Walloon band Roscoe. “We hit it off right away between Blanche and me ‘, says Dumoulin. ‘ Both on a personal and on a musical level. We have the number actually not written with a view to the Eurovision song contest. We made a number, it was approved and we are here. ‘ Denis came rather coincidentally visit The Voice and at Blanche, while channel surfing. ‘ It is not the genre programs where I normally go to look. ‘ The video clip was recorded by Brice VDH and Simon Vanrie in Brussels, in the Flagey building in Brussels.
