What could be said about the late and great Mr. Félix Leclerc? If we listen to his music, poems, and songs, it is all there. No need to add anything else.
Still, for those who may not know him, Bambi will share the following: He was an inspiring French-Canadian singer-songwriter, poet, playwright, writer, actor…. and, of course, a tireless patriot and musical ambassador of Québec (https://shorturl.at/jqPZ9). Mr. Leclerc was born on August 2, 1914. He died on August 8, 1988. May his memory be eternal.
Mr. Félix Leclerc was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1968 (https://shorturl.at/jqPZ9). Of note, he was inducted postmortem into the Canadian Songwriters of Fame for his three beautiful songs: “Le P’tit Bonheur“, “Le Tour de l’île“, “Moi et mes souliers” (https://shorturl.at/jqPZ9). Bravo!
If you happen to be either nostalgic or curious to discover this Canadian talent, here are a few songs for you. Leclerc’s talent is expressed in both the universal language of music and the most beautiful French language.
In conclusion, “Merci, Monsieur Félix Leclerc” for ALL your great songs, including “Le p’tit bonheur” [“The little happiness“] (subtitled in English, in addition to Spanish), “La complainte du phoque en Alaska” [“The lament of the seal in Alaska“], Gaspésie, and Île d’Orléans. The latter are two charming regions of Québec, Canada, with welcoming people [and deer :)]. Highly recommended, as touristic destinations!
