City of Montreal/Friday, July 1: Gino Vannelli Sings in Des Rapides Park

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - June 28, 2005) - On July 1, come celebrate Canada Day at Des Rapides Park in LaSalle, along with Gino Vannelli, Montreal's singer of world renown. In the first half, soul singer Rachelle will give you the chance to discover her mesmerizing voice. Undoubtedly the largest Canada Day show on the island of Montreal!

The Italian community invites you to supper!

To get the celebration off to a wonderful start, the Italian community invites you to come and share a good family meal at a nominal charge. An excellent opportunity to socialize and make new friends!

Rachelle at 7:30 p.m.

Writer, composer and performer, Rachelle is making a name for herself as Quebec's soul voice of tomorrow. A female Corneille or an Eryka Badu likeness, she astonishes her audiences with her seductive and drawling soul tones and her outstanding voice.

Gino Vannelli at 9:15 p.m.

Gino Vannelli has such top hits as I Just Wanna Stop, Black Cars, Fly Into This Night and Crazy Life. His "Canto" concert-which means "song" in Italian-and is named after his new album, highlights an opulent, symphonic, modern musical world and brings together styles as varied as pop, classical, Celtic and flamenco music. This combination-in a class by itself-is sung not only in French, but also in English, Italian and Spanish. You're in for quite a surprise!

The show will briefly pause at 10 p.m. to let the fireworks display light up the skies before continuing on, with even more vim, vigour and vitality, until 11 p.m. Gino Vannelli's visit to LaSalle has been made possible thanks to Labatt Blue, in partnership with Le Messager LaSalle and Club Richelieu LaSalle.

In case of rain, the activities will be held at Arena Jacques-Lemaire.
