Chloe x Halle: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
Abby O'Neill | December 8, 2020
Powerful sister duo Chloe x Halle went all out on this one. Flanked by personal memorabilia supplied by their mother, the Bailey sisters did their best to make this studio performance really feel like a home concert.
As they volley off each other, swapping lead and harmonies, it's amazing to watch how years of practice and innate genetic chemistry have them synced tighter than a SMPTE timecode. "Baby Girl," the second song here, starts with notes reminiscent of Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)," and is preceded with Chloe sharing "I know this year 2020 has been absolutely bonkers for all of us. For those moments where you kinda feel less than and you're not good enough ... that's why we wrote this song. ... Whatever happens, we'll be OK. And this is our world." Fusing R&B, soul and pop, backed by a talented nine-piece female band, this performance is surely to delight Chloe x Halle's global fanbase.

      They have been quarantined together and that’s why they didn’t wear masks. Or even they could have gotten tested before hand. 🤨

I also like how they kept on saying “that was fun” after each song because that’s how music should be, creative. Artists should be testing and mixing vocals not just doing the same old dull stuff, these girls got it, they’re so unique!!

    this performance is just hauntingly beautiful 🤍 i literally watch it every single day! i love both of them so much ofc but Halle is my girl🤍 i always felt so connected/could relate to her, and she's literally living out my dream !! i'm the same age as her and wanted to be a singer eversince i was a kid but instead of being as lucky as she is i was born into a poor and unsupportive family, in a small country nobody knows and i struggle with mental illnesses/suicidal thoughts so...yeah. literally no chance for me :'( oh and ofc i was born average, wasn't blessed with such a breathtaking talent and beauty as she is. she was destined to be a star, she's really really loved by someone up there 🤍☁️ she's like a sister to me, i live vicarously through her. live this dream for me Halle !!!!!! live it to the max for me who never got/will have the chance !! i'm so insanely proud of her and i think i will cry when i'll see her as Ariel 🥺 she's just so special. go change the world Halle, i'll forever support you, thank you for using your gift and luck such an amazing way, thank you for reminding me how singing is my biggest passion and healing me with your music 🙏 may you and Chloe be blessed forever
