“What a great day!”, Chloe gushed at the end of our interview. And Sunday 31 of July was indeed a beautiful day, with a blue, blue sky smiling over our heads — but what other color could it possibly wear when two sunbeams (and their mentor Queen Bey!) are in town?
Before meeting Chloe and Halle, I read through a dozen of interviews and aside of some of the questions asked always being the same from one article to another, ALL of them concurred on one very specific fact: the Bailey sisters are the sweetest and most polite artists you will ever get to encounter as a journalist/blogger. And Courtney and Doug — their parents who were present along with their little brother Branson — can definitely take all the credits for it. The 18 and 16-year-old singers are the sisters you would wish to have, the children you would hope to raise: smart, independent, caring and grateful girls.
The best thing about all of this is that it is not an act. You can tell by the way they listen to each other, offering their sibling enough space to express themselves and let them shine. Chloe (on the right) and Halle (on the left) are not ones to shy away from lighting each other’s candle ’cause they understood this wouldn’t make them lose their own flame. Hand in hand, they burn with passion and warm anyone’s heart entering their field of vision. “Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean”, reads their Twitter bio. And they got it all right: their precious bond and joyful spirits are the best compliment to their music.
