More than 50 Felix trophies were presented over three separate nights in Montreal this past week as part of the 41st annual Quebec music industry ADISQ galas named in honour of singer-songwriter Felix Leclerc.  


Earlier in the week, Club Soda was the spot where 23 trophies were presented, another 21 at MTelus and then, Sunday, the event of events was staged at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier of Place des Arts where a mix of the old and the new were celebrated.

Chief amongst the old guard was the surprise comeback of Ginette Reno with an album of new material written by some of the province’s best known and most successful songwriters. Reno’s first recordings were for Apex in 1963. All these years later, her latest, À Jamais, won in the Best-Selling Album and Adult Contemporary Album categories. The album, released in October 2018, has so far sold 95,000 physical copies, according to Montreal Gazette writer Brendan Kelly.

After an unlikely global smash hit that was 37 years in the making, and a long-overdue induction into the Rock Hall, Kate Bush is named as ambassador for the U.K.’s Record Store Day 2024.

The English singer rarely appears in public, on TV or radio. Though, being asked to serve as ambassador for RSD is “a huge honor,” she writes in a message on her official website. “It really is a great privilege.”
