Roch Voisine was born on March 26, 1963 in Edmundston, in Quebec.
Roch fits very young person the shoes and moves towards a sporting
career as player of hockey. Unfortunately, at 17 years, following
a serious muscular tear at the age, it must give up a promising
career. It occupies its convalescence while writing and by scraping
the cords of a guitar, then, with friends, it records some compositions
but without any professional aiming. However, Paul Vincent,
a disc Québécois jockey, thinks that Roch has
a voice and a solid talent of type-setter. He decides to become
his agent. Roch Voisine leaves a very first disc "Sweet
songs". It also makes to its first scene face 50.000 people
at the time of the Canadian national festival. Second disc in
1987, "Roch Neighbor". The young singer starts to
know a small notoriety partly cultivated by the emission "Signal
Youth" which it animates successfully on Québécois
television. In 1989, it triumphs with television in the role
over Dany Ross, player of hockey in the series "Knocks
Roch Voisine is thus
not completely unknown when its career explodes in 1989 with
the title "Helene". The album, of the same name, is
sold to three million specimen in a few months and Roch Voisine
is crowned superstar day at the following day.
In 1992, before beginning a third round in France, Roch Voisine
receives the title of Knight of the Order of Arts and the Letters.
In 1993, its wax statue takes seat to the Grévin museum
with with dimensions of that of Madonna.
So very regularly the inhabitant of Quebec leaves the albums,
it does not join again with success. "Each Fire" left
in 1999, "Roch Voisine" in 2001.
In 2002, new "Higher" opus leaves, in English. Rather
removed, between pop rock'n'roll and ballades, this album is
dedicated to Myriam Midsummer's Day, a Québécois
young person whom it married on December 21.
