Is it true that she doesn't like the audience singing along with her?

Hi Erica

It's been some time since I corresponded in the discussion forum on
Madeleine's sight - it is good to be back on line with other Madeleine

Does Madeleine like the audience singing along? Well her music is
exquistely subtle and much of it soft and demands quiet - songs like "I
look around" and "j'ai deux amour" .   Madeleine often comments on how
quiet the auditorium is. However, I have never heard her demand quiet.    
With her recent album, she has a number of more rock and roll type
songs, such as "A little bit" and "I'm Alright" and the couple of times I
have seen her live in the last year in NYC she has positively demanded
audience engagement. And when she played Town Hall with Odetta -
Odetta made the audience sing along and in the encore with Madeleine
and Odetta singing Careless Love together the audience where
encouraged to sing along. I also remeber her at another gig in DC I think
encouraging the audience to sing along to Smile.

So does that answer your question. It should be remembered that
Madeleine started off as a street musician where I am sure she and her
band would have been delighted by an attentive audience that wanted to
sing along!

Keep enjoying the music.
