Ginette Reno's career in five souvenir photos

The young Ginette Raynault was now called Reno. After winning all the singing competitions in which she participated, she launched a first 45 lap titled J'aime Guy, a success followed by many others, including You will always live in my heart. At sixteen, she won the coveted title of Discovery of the Year at the Gala des artistes.

In 1977, 45 years ago! That year, the singer founded her own record company, Melon-Miel, and she began a new series of shows. Two years earlier, during Saint-Jean, she had sung Un peu plus loin by Jean-Pierre Ferland, in front of more than 250,000 people gathered on Mount Royal, an unforgettable event.

The beautiful Ginette, after Paris and Las Vegas, triumphed 24 nights in a row at Place des Arts in 1980 and her album Je ne suis qu'une chanson (title song by Diane Juster) was a monster success. Several times rewarded, it will sell more than 380,000 copies, a record for the time in Quebec and... a miracle today.

The beast of the stage, at 40, deploying all the power of her voice in 1986. For 20 years already, she had led an exceptional career. She had sung with the greatest and accumulated awards, without imagining that 40 years later, she would still be in people's hearts.

During the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, in 2008, Ginette Reno resumed her success Un peu plus haut with none other than Céline Dion and Jean-Pierre Ferland. In front of 250,000 people who had moved on the Plains of Abraham, they had offered a breathtaking performance.
