“I’m not supposed to say anything (…) But that’s the least I could do for Guy,” she said with a grin.
She said she couldn’t have sung at the Bell Center last Sunday during her tribute.
“It’s very difficult for me, it’s worrying. Every time one of my friends or someone I love very much leaves, it takes a while, sometimes up to a month, but I tell myself that maybe we’ll all be together soon,” Ms. Reno said.
The amazing singer continues to recover from her November 2021 episode of “Malignant Arrhythmia,” but assures she is doing much better.
“I was scared. I remember the day I had my greatest weakness. I said to God, ‘Do you really need me on the other side because I think I have work to do here,'” explains you.
Despite her episode last November, she wants to keep singing.
“I don’t know the word retirement, it’s a word I don’t even want to hear. It’s like dieting, I struggle with that, but today I’m at 194 pounds, I was at 306, I’m getting better,” she said.
However, she confirms that she needs to keep working on her voice to be able to sing freely.
She confirms to Pierre Bruneau that she’s not like the blonde demon who was such a natural hockey player, she needs to keep working on her voice if she wants to keep up her level.
“I’m 76 and I still sing as well as I used to, so I need to practice, I need to work on my muscles, it’s just a little piece of meat but I need to work on it. I have to do vocalizations, otherwise I won’t sing anymore,” she explains.
After being appointed Chevalier des Arts et Lettres and Chevalier du Québec, the great lady of song is now a member of the French Legion of Honour.
An award that she accepted with great emotion on her birthday.
