Fabienne Thibeault (16 Jun 1952 Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian singer. She is particularly known for her role in Starmania. Thibeault has released numerous albums over her career. She has been the recipient of two Félix Awards.

History[edit]

She began her singing career at 19, placing third at the Festival international de la chanson de Granby in 1972. In 1974 she won the same competition. She then went on to touring and singing with other better known Quebec artists, including Plume Latraverse and Sylvain Lelièvre. She released her first album De laine et de bois (Of Wool and Wood) in 1976.[1][2]

By 1978, she had caught the attention of producer Luc Plamondon. He asked Thibeault to join the cast of Starmania, which he had written with Michel Berger, in the role of Marie-Jeanne. Thibeault toured with the show in Quebec and Europe, then on her own.

Thibeault has been recognised with two Félix Awards. The first in 1979 as Female Performer of the Year,[3] and the second in 1981 for pop LP of the year.[4]

Success in Europe, along with marriage to French saxophone player Jean-Pierre Debarbat, led her to spend increasing amounts of time in France, where she now lives. In July 2011, Thibeault and her husband announced they were getting divorced. They promised, however, to continue their work together promoting rural life in the diverse regions of France where they live, and the preservation of agricultural traditions, through the various associations they have created.[5]
