Garou

One of my favorite singers is fellow Canadian Garou, born on June 26, 1972 in Québec. Garou (garoo) means “wolf” – definitely not the name his parents gave him at birth, which was the much more prosaic Pierre Garand. The name suits his deep, edgy, sexy voice. He sang in bars and clubs in Québec until he was discovered by producer Luc Plamondon. He catapulted to fame in France with his role as the deformed but tender-hearted Quasimodo in the musical Notre-Dame de Paris. Garou sang “Belle” as a trio along with Daniel Lavoie and Patrick Fiori. He launched his solo career with Seul, followed by Reviens and then Garou all of which I happily purchased and loaded on my I-pod. Garou tours regularly and has released live albums and DVDs as well as additional studio albums. He’s a coach on the TV show The Voice: La plus belle voix on French TV.

    He looks a lot like your husband, just not as good looking.
