But it is a measure of the gulf between Canada's two cultures that because he sings in French he is still generally unknown to most English speaking Canadians, even the ones who live in Montreal. "In French Canada, he's considered part of everyone's declared Rene Angelil, one of the singer's managers. "People just see him, and they feel good." Angelil maintains that Rene "looks like an and it is a hard point to dispute. When he is singing a religious song "Ave Maria" was one of his biggest hits people in the audience are frequently mov- ed to tears. A television star who has also appeared in two motion pictures, Rene is a polished performer, with a clear, strong voice and a wardrobe ranging from frilly blouses to mod leather suits. Although only 4 feet 10 inches tall, he takes over a stage with con- fidence, his hands moving easily to shape a melody, his big brown eyes sparkling or sad. to reflect the appropriate mood. Rene Eschews hard rock music, preferring gentle ballads about growing up and about his parents, with titles like "My Mother is an and "Mother Dear" (Mother dear, you showed me the way to truth: I say. thank His most recent hit, "Sun- day Afternoons." is typical. In it. a boy recalls what fun Sun- days used to be at his house, before his parents were divorced papa helping him fly his kite, while mama prepared supper. Then, in anguish, he belts out the chorus: I don't understand why we are separated. Oh tell me why we don't live together any more. It hurts me to see my parents divorced. Rene's family, including six brothers and sisters, lives near the city of Quebec. His father, who used to be a cook in a northern lumber camp, now devotes his time to the young singer's career, from which Rene has already earn- ed million, according to Angelil. London records of Canada, his distributor, says that he has sold 1.5 million records, half of them singles, the rest long playing albums. Now, after a cram course in English, this little 75 pound star of Quebic is turning his attention to the United States market. Because of the extent to which English speaking Canada's culture is dominated by what it sees and hears from south of the border, probably the only way that Rene can get recognition in the nine other provinces of Canada is to succeed in the United States The conflict between this country's two cultures is also the subject of a new television comedy series, "Excuse My which takes a funny look at Canada's most serious problem Similar to the American series "Bridget loves Ber- the show tells the story of a young married couple in Montreal a French Cana- dian waitress and an English Canadian law student.
