Biography

Wilfred Le Bouthillier (born May 12, 1978) is a Canadian singer from the town of Tracadie-Sheila, New Brunswick and the winner of the 2003 edition of Star Académie, a Quebec reality show for aspiring singers. He is known simply by his first name, Wilfred. His debut album Wilfred Le Bouthillier was released in the autumn of 2003. Produced with the assistance of Cajun singer Zachary Richard, it proved to be an enviable success, selling over 200,000 copies. This is exceptional for an artist in Quebec. By way of comparison, this would be equivalent to selling more than 8 million copies of an English-language album in the United States.

Among his awards and distinctions, Wilfred has received several “Prix Étoiles” (in Acadie). He took home the Juno Award for Francophone Album of the Year for his debut album, “Wilfred Le Bouthillier.” He was also nominated in several categories during the Quebec l’ADISQ 2005 gala, including one nomination in the Best Seller category. At the 16th SOCAN gala, his song “Je Ferai Tout,” was listed among the top ten most played francophone songs on the radio.

Wilfred recorded a follow-up album in 2005 called Poussières. This album was another success for the artist, classified as the second best-selling album in Quebec and the twelfth best-seller in Canada. The first song released from that album, “Avec Toi,” made it to the top 5 in the top 100 radio BDS countdown while the video also placed the song in the top 5 on Musique Plus and Musimax (the Francophone version of MuchMusic).
