Born on March 26th, 1963
Canadian singer and songwriter
He was heading for a career as a professional hockey player, but a muscular injury changed that decision. Roch then opted for a music career, though in the early days it was not an easy undertaking. While patiently awaiting real success, he worked as a TV presenter and took part in the series Cogne et gagne. He was finally recognized as a songwriter when Hélène reached first place in the Top 50 in 1989 and remained there for nine weeks. He first sang it in French, and then in English, thus becoming popular both in Canada and in Europe. The eponymous album quickly became a double platinum disc, and Roch's first French tour attracted 80,000 spectators over fifteen days. In the following years, the singer made European tours and was awarded the title of Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, in France. In 1993, his model was inaugurated in the Paris Grévin Museum, to the great pleasure of his vast number of female fans.
