Jeanick Fournier is a Canadian singer and winner of the inaugural season of Canada’s Got Talent. Along with the crown of the first CGT champion, Fournier won $150,000 and the opportunity to perform at the “America’s Got Talent Las Vegas LIVE” stage show at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Born and raised in Chicoutimi Quebec, Fournier is a singer, mother, and palliative care beneficiary attendant. She learned English by watching her favourite singers – Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Lara Fabien, and Barbara Streisand – and emulating their breathing, pronunciation, and way of speaking in interviews. For 15 years, Jeanick performed and sang in a duet tribute group for Celine Dion, and sings everyday – either to her kids, her patients, or with other artists in the studio.
Jeanick Fournier Canada Got Talent
Quebec singer Jeanick Fournier won the inaugural season of Canada’s Got Talent. Her winning performance was a rendition of Queen’s “The Show Must Go On.”
Guest judge for the episode Simon Cowell said after Fournier’s song, “You wrapped up just the most extraordinary night. Your story is just really, really incredible. And based on everyone I’ve met tonight, I think I want to live in Canada. The final wouldn’t have been the same without you. I understand why the public chose you. It was a great song choice.”
“Thank you to all of the people from Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean Québec and Canada for your support,” Fournier said in a press release. “Thanks to my team, my family, my friends, my partner, and my beautiful kids. My love is yours forever.”
CIBC is rewarding the Canada’s Got Talent Champion with a grand prize of $150,000 and the opportunity to work with a financial advisor to help achieve their ambition. In partnership with AIR MILES, Fournier also receives 100,000 Air Miles Dream Miles to take her show on the road. Plus, Fournier gets the opportunity to perform at the “America’s Got Talent Las Vegas LIVE” stage show at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Fournier opened the contest by receiving country singer, Lindsey Ell’s golden buzzer in auditions with her rendition of ‘I Surrender’ by Celine Dion.
The 49-year-old from Chicoutimi would later go on to stun Canadians again in the semi-finals by singing ‘Never Enough’ from the feature film ‘The Greatest Showman’, and winning the public vote for the round.
