Who is this mystery singer?

Driving home I heard the most beautiful voice on the radio…
Singing in a wild version of French…
With a cool jazzy band in the background…
I grabbed my phone and recorded a bit…
(I waited for a red light- it was safe.)

Pretty cool, right?!
But WHO is this mystery singer?

After the song she mentions Georges Castera– a famous Haitian writer. When I google Haitian singer the first automatic search term paired with it was Emeline Michel.  She has so many beautiful songs in Creole… but the voice I heard sounded younger than her… and after further googling it seems that although Cecile McLorin Salvant has a beautiful jazzy voice, she appears to mostly sing in English. Which then brings me BACK to Emeline Michel… but, is the voice I heard her?!
