Michel Bérubé possède une voix au charme irrésistible, empreinte d'émotion et d'honnêteté. Jennifer Warnes et Chrissie Hynde, deux icônes de la pop, furent si impressionnées par le talent de Michel qu'elles insistèrent toutes deux pour enregistrer avec lui. Le duo avec Jennifer apparaît sur l'album This Christmas (dont cinq pistes connurent un grand succès dans les radios partout au Canada et aux États-Unis). Chrissie et Michel unissent leurs voix dans le duo Laisse-moi t'aimer / We'll be together (où Michel chante en français et Chrissie en anglais) qui figure en prime sur le tout nouvel album francophone de Michel, HYMNES À L'AMOUR

 

Au fil des plus belles chansons de la Francophonie qui constituent HYMNES À L'AMOUR, Michel fait vibrer sa voix chaude et puissante. Quand Michel interprète ces chansons sur scène, en compagnie de ses musiciens, le public est immanquablement soulevé, et le concert finit par une ovation. Ces classiques de la chanson ont berçé l'enfance de Michel, qui a grandi à Ste-Louise, un petit village du bas Saint-Laurent. Il reprend aujourd'hui ces grandes chansons avec une inspiration magistrale. Avec chaque prestation, Michel célèbre une longue tradition de musique francophone par le biais de chansons qui lui permettent d'exprimer un éventail d'émotions, exhibant sa passion avec "Un peu plus haut, un peu plus loin" et "Avec le temps" comme son côté enjoué avec "C'est si bon" et "À Paris". Les interprétations de Michel sont destinées à devenir des versions de référence, faisant de HYMNES À L'AMOUR un album incontournable.

 

Michel Bérubé possède un talent rare, à découvrir à tout prix.

 

Michel Bérubé has a voice that draws listeners in and seduces them with its emotion and honesty. Pop icons, Jennifer Warnes and Chrissie Hynde were so impressed with Michel's talent, they were both eager to record duets with him - Jennifer on Michel's album This Christmas which had five tracks in rotation on Canadian radio and Chrissie on Michel's newest release HYMNES À L'AMOUR. "Laisse-moi t'aimer / We'll be together" on which Michel sings in French and Chrissie in English, is a Bonus track on Michel's first all French album.

 

On HYMNES À L'AMOUR, Michel interprets some of the most popular songs in the Francophone "song book" showcasing both the tenderness and power of his voice and when Michel and his four-piece band perform them in concert, audiences are routinely on their feet cheering. Growing up in Ste. Louise, a small village east of Quebec City, Michel listened to, sang along with and loved these songs and the affection he holds for them is evident in every note. From the passion of "Un peu plus haut, un peu plus loin" and "Avec le temps" to the light heartedness of "C'est si bon" and "À Paris", each song is part of a long tradition of great French music that Michel celebrates at each performance.

 

Michel Bérubé, a rare talent not to be missed.

Mulroney the Opera

mulroney.jpgApril 15, 2011 - Joyously irreverent, Mulroney: The Opera blends political satire with an original operatic score. It is at once a comedy, a tragedy and always thoroughly epic in its portrayal of contemporary political life in Canada. Within the 'Holy Grail' of musical forms - the Opera - these stories, scandals and real-life politicians are finally given the larger-than-life platform they deserve.

Muloney: The Opera is being released April 16th with an encore presentation  April 27th, 7 PM.
Directed by Larry Weinstein, Composed by Alexina Louie, Libretto by Dan Rideican, conducted by Alex Paulk, recorded by Dennis Patterson in CBC Sound Studio 211

Hip Hop Summit receives rave reviews

20110330CBCHipHopSummit.jpgMarch 29, 2011 - When CBC announced a Canadian rap concert to end all rap concerts at Glenn Gould Studio, it was met with skepticism in some sectors.  Well, doubters, they pulled it off. With wild style.  Starting from an idea from GGS own producer/technician Chris Jackson, the team at CBC cast off its cloak of fuddy-duddyness for a full night and produced what most agree was an amazing, inspiring, and cool event.

The three hundred people lucky enough to be in attendance at Tuesday's Hip Hop Summit concert were treated to a party that was anything but sedate. Performers included Maestro, Saukrates, Kardinal Offishall, Michie Mee, Choclair, k-os, K'naan, Dream Warriors, Shad (Canada's newest hip-hop Juno award winner), Cadence Weapon, Skratch Bastid, and the list goes on.  (Torontoist)

The Hip Hop Summit: Celebrating a quarter-century of Canadian hip hop culture at Glenn Gould Studio

Thumbnail image for hiphopsummit.jpgFEB 24, 2011 - Almost two years ago, GGS's Chris Jackson asked his colleague; Radio Music Producer and Recording Engineer, Ron Skinner - Why we don't record and showcase more Rap music? Shortly thereafter, Jackson put forward his proposal of a Canada Live record, and the broadcast of a 'Hip Hop History' concert. Jackson had been planning to put together the event himself, yet when it was pitched to CBC Radio, the electricity of his idea was evident.

The CBC Radio music team; in particular, Ann MacKeigan, Ron Skinner and Malcolm Gould, thought an exposé on the history of Hip Hop was an excellent way to reach their listening audience. MacKeigan felt that Jackson's idea could be much bigger than just a concert, and an excellent outreach opportunity for CBC. Thus, morphed: The Hip Hop Summit. The Hip Hop Summit pays respect to Canadian Hip Hop by documenting its history through performance.Chris Jackson will be co-producing his premier concert for CBC Radio on March 29th, 2011. The concert will be live-to-air on Radio 3 and will be available as a podcast shortly following the live performance.
