The tour Forever Gentlemen offers a new feminine touch. Marie-Ève Janvier will join on stage Roch Voisine, Garou and Corneille to twenty shows across the province this spring, has learned the Journal.
“I realize a long time dream by touching the directory of the crooners. It is a kind of music that I particularly like for its elegance and romanticism. It ages so well, it is always so beautiful, even 60 years later”, explains the singer.
It will not be his first foray into the world of gentlemen. Marie-Ève Janvier has participated in a handful of performances of the first tour of the three singers in Quebec, in 2015.
A female voice
At the time, his contribution to the show was limited to three songs. This time, it will be an integral part of the program of the evening, incorporating numbers in duo, trio, or even solo. The addition of a female voice will open up a whole lot of new possibilities, according to Marie-Ève Janvier.
“When we think of the music of crooner, we think primarily of men. But there were also great singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Natalie Cole, who gravitated around them. Then I believe that we will expand the range of songs even bigger,” she says.
Now more present on the airwaves of television and radio on the scenes of the province, Marie-Ève Janvier did not hesitate for long before accepting the invitation of the three gentlemen. The sporadic nature of the contract fit in perfectly with its other obligations, including the mom of the little Lea, three years old.
“Our family always comes first. But in the case of Forever Gentlemen, it was a no brainer. This is not a world tour, these are shows extended for a month and a half. Jean-François will take care of Leah and take her to see me in the show. I love that she sees what we do in life, for her it becomes more concrete”, she says.
► The tour Forever Gentlemen would begin on the 1st of may next. It will stop at the St-Denis Theater in Montreal on may 4, and at the Capitole de Québec on 14 and 15 June.
