WHAT SOME HAVE SAID...
«Acadian chanteuse Nathalie Renault was the other featured performer at the CRDC Gala. This gamin, bubbly, sparkling entertainer who hails originally from Campbellton, presented a wide variety of vocal numbers, from her own compositions to a modem, jazzed up version ot the old Frank Sinatra standard ONE FOR MY BABY. Ms Renault’s vocal style is particularly suited to jazz. There is a Sarah Vaughan quality in her voice and she has terrific control and dynamics. Perhaps more importantly, she puts her emotions into a song».
