A word about VeroniqueChevalier:
She's been called the "Weird Val" of Cabaret, for her hilarious parodies and side-splitting covers. (Imagine if Jim Morrison and Elvira had a love child with a French accent). Deemed "too extreme for Simon" she was gonged off the first season of "America's Got Talent", after only 20 seconds, which only proves her gifts are wasted on the masses.
She is also a featured columnist aka the "Queen Of Quirk" and her work appears on Blue Railroad Magazine, along with fellow pensters Paul Zollo, Sr. Editor of "American Songwriter Magazine"; Deepak Chopra; John Doe of X; Peter Case of the Plimsouls; and Parthenon Huxley of ELO:
