Claude André Dubois (born 24 April 1947 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian singer-songwriter.

Dubois was an early star of the francophone musical Starmania. He was a vocalist in the Canadian famine relief song "Tears Are Not Enough" and was nominated Most Promising Male Vocalist at the Juno Awards of 1985.

More recently, Dubois made headlines after accusing the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation of "racism" and "insulting Quebecers" after chopping all of the Quebec artists from the televised version of the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame gala in Toronto.[1][2]
