Here's a famous French Canadian.
Felix Leclerc was one of the most influential singers in Quebec's musical history. He was born in La Tuque Quebec in 1914. He started his career as a radio dramatist. He eventually left Quebec for Paris where he soon became a star.
He made his triumphant return to Montreal in 1951.
A great Leclerc song is "Moi, Mes Souliers". It is an epic tale of a man who travels and experiences many different things, and all the while, his shoes are firmly attached to his feet.
Leclerc died in 1988
