Kevin Bazinet (born June 14, 1991) is a Canadian pop singer, who won the third season of the reality television series La Voix in 2015.[1]

Originally from Mont-Laurier, Quebec,[2] he is the younger brother of singer Bobby Bazini.[2] In the late 2000s, he became a popular performer on YouTube,[2] performing both original songs and covers, and received a recording contract offer from EMI France in 2009.[2] However, the contract fell through as Bazinet battled anxiety disorder.[2] After taking time away from the business to look after his physical and emotional health, he reemerged in 2015 as a competitor on La Voix, auditioning with a take on Sam Smith's acoustic version of "Latch".[2]

In the finale on April 12, he performed "Jusqu’où tu m’aimes", a song written by his coach Marc Dupré and Alex Nevsky.[1] He was named the winner at the end of the episode, with 46 per cent of the audience vote.[1]

On May 12, "Jusqu'où tu m'aimes" was released as his first radio single.[3] The song peaked at #2 on Quebec's French language pop charts.

In June, Bobby and Kevin performed together on Quebec's Opération Enfant Soleil telethon, duetting on a version of The Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody".[4]

Bazinet performed at the Stanley Cup 125th Tribute Concert in Ottawa, Ontario on March 17, 2017.[5]
