BET À DAY
Véronic DiCaire is more than happy to meet the Quebec public after a two-year forced shutdown, due to the pandemic.
The queen of imitators is taking over the collar these days with all the energy we know from it. Surrounded by dancers and musicians, she interprets old classics, winking at great voices like Marie Carmen, Ginette Reno and Céline Dion, who is entitled to a musical of her own, just to celebrate his extensive repertoire.
But since Véronic DiCaire's audience is varied, the singer and impersonator also gives pride of place to rising stars like Charlotte Cardin, Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa.
“I am very happy to imitate Charlotte, because she's a young girl with an incredible career. But I also like to imitate Shirley Théroux who, for me, is just as impressive, because it is the careers, the singers and all that they are also that I try to embody as much as possible in my imitations. /p>
Directed by Josée Fortier, the “Véronic DiCaire en spectacle” tour won the 2020 Félix for show-performer. The show is essentially the same as before the pandemic, although adjustments have been made to bring it to 2022.
“We have refined certain songs, but the show is well established. […] When I was doing Dua Lipa, I was doing another song before, and I said to myself that it was no longer relevant at all, so we updated certain songs, ”she said to QMI Agency, adding that her greatest happiness is “to have the feeling of pleasing the spectators”.
Véronic DiCaire, who began her career 20 years ago with a first album – before becoming an impersonator 15 years ago – devotes sections of the show to imagining, for example, La Bolduc singing rap.
“We have fun making people laugh, but also touch them. For me, it's important to have a good balance between emotion and laughter.”
“Masked singers” and “Niagara”
After returning to the stage in Europe in May – she will also return there in November, December and January – and having filmed the second season of “Masked singers” as an investigator alongside Sam Breton, Anouk Meunier and Stéphane Rousseau , she will also promote the film “Niagara”, by Guillaume Lambert, in which she plays. We can see this comedy in theaters from September 16.
Two days later, it will be the premiere of “Masked singers” starting at 6:30 p.m., on TVA, which proves that Véronic DiCaire will not lack visibility in this return to school, which will also be performed on stage, across Quebec.
“We have 'fun', it's big candy, it's super well done and it's so beautiful to see people when they are revealed how touched they are. Viewers are going to have some nice surprises.”
