360 Vegas Reviews: Veronic Voices @Bally's Fall 2013






Like most people fortunate enough to have an amazing voice, Veronic DiCaire started as a singer.  She was in a group, and then did musical theatre and eventually did 2 solo French-speaking albums for which she won awards. 

But more than singing, Veronic loved signing like other people.  Correction, she liked to imitate other female singers in voice and mannerisms.  All told, Veronic is known for her virtual pitch perfect vocal impersonations of 50 of the biggest female recording artists with some of the biggest voices in history.

Veronic went on tour as an opener for Celine Dion in 2008 during a stretch in Montreal.  It isn’t clear if she was performing material from her albums or if she had made the full move over to impersonations at this point.  Whatever it was, it caught Celine’s eye and she used her pull at Caesars Entertainment to get Veronic a shot at a residency at Bally’s.  Two weeks into that month long residency, the run was extended indefinitely.
