Born Pierre Garand in Sherbrooke, Quebec, singer Garou was a child prodigy, mastering guitar and piano at a young age. In 1997, at the age of 25, Garou was cast in the starring role of Quasimodo in Notre-Dame de Paris, a musical adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The production proved a box office smash, vaulting Garou to fame. With the help of Celine Dion's manager/husband, René Angélil, he signed a recording contract and issued his solo debut, Seul, in late 2000. "Sous le Vent," Garou's duet with Dion, proved an international hit. Reviens followed in 2004, and in mid-2006 Garou issued his self-titled third LP. He continued to record, both live and studio albums, switching from French to English singing. 2012 saw the release of his seventh studio recording, Rhythm'n'Blues. ~ Jason Ankeny
