FROM THE BEGINNING -
An endless passion for dance, for music,
for theatre, for people, for life.
Determined, passionate, energetic and electrifying are the words which
best describe multidisciplinary performer Jessy Gauthier.
As a singer, Jessy has starred as the principal performer on a number of singles, including ‘Is This Love’ featuring DJ Vito V, ‘Take Me I’, ‘SooGood’, ‘Start Me Up’, ‘Passe la Puck’ and ‘La Grenouille’.
This latter single is a modern-day remake of the 1979 phenomenally successful, identically titled song written, composed and performed by his grandfather, country singer André Guitar.
He also sang in the video clip of ‘Passe la Puck’ produced by Sony Black. This clip featured a number of young dancers, including singer Jacinthe and hockey player Georges Laraque, and was intended to raise money for underprivileged young people otherwise unable to practise sports.
Jessy has also enjoyed the privilege of singing for numerous organizations, events and productions.
Recent engagements include performances for Gala Triomphe, Musée Grévin-Chic Choc Montréal, Musique Plus, Sainte Justine Hospital Foundation, Fondation des CLSC du Québec, Relais pour la vie, Festival des Régates de Valleyfield, La Ronde-Adrénaline 2 and Jonquière en Musique.
