Liza Minnelli
Liza Minnelli was born on 12 March 1946 in Los Angeles, California, to the actress/singer Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli, the film director responsible for such classics as “Meet Me in St. Louis” and “An American in Paris.”

 
   

Tracy Young
To make it in the cutting edge world of club DJs and re-mixers one must be versatile, innovative, and adaptable. If you’ve been keeping up with the global club scene, then chances are that your ears have feasted on the potent blends of Dance, House and Tribal rhythms served up by the hard hitting Miami-based Tracy Young.

 
   

Marjo
Born in Montréal on 2 August 1953, Marjo enjoyed a childhood filled with music. At the age of two, she was already earning 25 cents each morning from the mechanic next door by singing P’tit coeur après neuf heures. As a child at the family cottage in the suburb or Rawdon, she would run through the open fields, singing and letting her voice echo against the nearby mountains. Around that time, she began to record her voice on the tape recorder her father had given her.

 
   

Mélanie Renaud
Discovered by the record house, Diffusion YFB and the management firm, Projet D2 at the age of 17, this young Montrealer, Haitian by birth, was recognized at the 1998 Festival international de la chanson de Granby. Two years later, she launched her first album, Ma liberté, for which she herself wrote many of the lyrics with the support of writers such as Jim Corcoran, Éric Lapointe and Sylvain Cossette.
