Canadian Music Hall of Fame: Diane Dufresne enters the Palace of the Immortals

BET À DAY

Singer Diane Dufresne and musician Oliver Jones were officially inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame on Thursday night in Calgary.

The singer thus becomes the first performer French-speaking, working in this language, to be introduced there.

During the ceremony, she notably offered some of the outstanding pieces of her rich musicography which contributed to her success.

Diane Dufresne made her immortal debut alongside Montreal-born country singer Terri Clark, rock band Trooper and prolific jazz pianist Dr. Oliver Jones, for whom singer Ranee Lee and pianist Robi Botos paid a vibrant tribute.

The lyricist Luc Plamondon was the first French-speaking artist to be inducted into the Hall of Fame by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, in 1999 .
