The ‘Girlfriend’ singer was set to perform on Saturday, April 20 at the second weekend of Coachella Festival
Héloïse Letissier revealed in a tweet that she has flown home to be with her family following the death of her mother earlier in the week. The tweet, written in French, read: “I can only write very simple sentences. I lost my mother on Tuesday night. I came home to go through this ordeal with my loved ones-I won't be able to sing this Saturday. I kiss you.”
Je n’arrive qu’à écrire des phrases très simples. J’ai perdu ma mère dans la nuit de mardi. Je suis rentrée pour traverser cette épreuve avec mes proches - je ne pourrai pas chanter ce samedi. Je vous embrasse.
