In 2013, Chloé Temtchine, a YouTube sensation and
singer/songwriter, had just finished an album with Smash Mouth’s
Grammy-nominated Greg Camp. All set to go on a world tour with him, Chloé suffered severe shoulder & chest pain and was rushed to the ER; she was in congestive heart failure. She was told she had Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), a rare and fatal lung condition, little time left to live, and that she would have to be on oxygen for the rest of her life.
It’s an understatement to say that Chloé’s world was turned upside down in an instant. She had spent the previous five years dealing with a variety of physical symptoms (shortness of breath, chest pain, dry cough, racing heartbeat, fatigue, and water retention) that left many respected and acclaimed doctors at some of the most prestigious medical institutions perplexed.
Chloé’s doesn’t want her story to be about the years of
doctor-hopping, misdiagnoses, or landing in the Critical Care Unit.
She wants it to be about what happened afterward and where she is
Seven years after being released from the critical care unit and many, many, many days more than doctors thought possible, Chloé is writing music, performing, and using her talent to inspire and empower those affected with PAH and other chronic illnesses.
In that time, she released three albums: Be Brave, Strangers, and Lead Me Home. Chloé wrote the song Be Brave shortly after she was released from the hospital's critical care unit. Chloé donates proceeds from sales to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. The video for her single “Breathe” features several children with PAH & the overarching message that sometimes you have to lose your breath to breathe. She just completed her fourth album, titled You Save Me, set to be released in tandem with Chloé’s 2020 Smile Tour.
