Fresh… Tenacious… An exceptional talent… This, in a few words, is Véronic DiCaire. Born in Embrun, a small town in Eastern Ontario in Canada, the singer impersonator has had an extremely fast paced last few years!
She made her incredible debut as a singer impersonator in 2008 when she was selected as the opening act to Celine Dion’s Taking Chances tour for Quebec. Impersonating the great French and American singers, she attracted a tidal wave of media attention. The people of Quebec showed true discernment in their appreciation of her talent making Véronic’S first next tour – as an impersonator – a sell out tour. Their acclaim carried her all the way to France - the ultimate goal for any French-speaking international artist – Belgium and Switzerland.
Passionate about singing from an early age, Véronic impressed the judges of the Ontario Pop singing competition when she was only 17. Then moved into musicals, receiving ovations throughout Quebec for her portrayal of Sandy in the Quebecoise adaptation of GREASE.
Her first folk-rock album, released by Warner Music Canada, earned her two nominations at the ADISQ awards in 2002 and five Trille d’Or trophies at the Franco-Ontarian music industry award ceremony in 2003. In March of the same year she returned to the world of musical theatre to play Roxie Hart in the francophone production of Chicago – The Musical opposite comedian Anthony Kavanagh (in Montreal) and Stéphane Rouseau (in Paris), having previously dubbed the singing voice of Renée Zellweger in the French version of the film, demonstrating yet again her talent and versatility.
In the spring of 2005-2006 she released her second album and went on tour, while also performing in galas, hosting her first TV show, appearing in a TV series and a theatre revue and later doing her first imitations in 2007 at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and the Grand Rire Festival in Québec.
All this attracted the attention of Céline Dion and René Angélil, who, impressed by her talent and generosity, invited Véronic to open for Dion during the Taking Chances Tour. Her success immediately established her as an uniquely gifted artist and allowed her to have a sold-out tour in French Canada between 2009 and 2010. In the spring of 2010, she created a new show and decided to try her luck in France, Belgium and Switzerland. After less than a year, Véronic was already a appearing on X-Factor France as a judge and wowing crowds wherever she performed!
Between June of 2013 and 2015, Véronic performed as a headliner at the Jubilee Theatre of the Bally’s Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Her new show VOICES – co-produced by Céline Dion – allowed Véronic to pay homage to the most popular female recording artists in the world. Her amazing talent and repertoire earned her Best Singer... and Best Impersonator / Successor to Danny Gans (staff pick) for the 2014 Best of Las Vegas Awards.
Between her Las Vegas show dates, Véronic presented a new show to her French Canadian audience – La Voix des Autres – and prepared her 2nd European Tour, scheduled for January of 2016. Until then, she will participate in Dances With The Stars – France.
