PLENTY OF GOOD NEWS FOR THE ARTIST:
A NOTICED PRESENCE IN THE CANADIAN TV SHOW THE LAUNCH
A SERIES OF WEB CAPSULES ON VÉRO.TV (L’EXTRA D’ICI TOU.TV)
A DOCUMENTARY ON ICI TÉLÉ
AND MORE THAN 40,000 TICKETS SOLD FOR THE ELLE ET MOI TOUR!
Highly anticipated on social media, Marie-Mai’s new single and recent music video EXISTER shows a free, bold and more inspiring than ever artist. While her latest album ELLE ET MOI continues to make waves, the tour of the same name kicking off on February 14, 15 and 16 at the Bell Centre is already reaching unparalleled heights since it went on sale, with an impressive total of 40,000 tickets sold so far!
Shot in Mexico, in the Yucatán Peninsula surrounding the city of Valladolid, tis new music video was directed by Caraz, a very talented director who also contributed to the new visual identity of Marie-Mai with the recent video for Je décolle.
“WHAT’S STRIKING WHEN YOU MEET MARIE-MAI IS HER CHARISMA. SHE’S A STRONG, AMBITIOUS WOMAN WHO IS ALSO VERY SWEET. WHEN I LISTENED TO THE SONG EXISTER, I IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZED THIS MESMERIZING DUALITY AND LUST FOR LIFE, THIS URGENT DESIRE TO BE HERSELF AND TO SHARE HER VOICE, ON A LARGE SCALE AND IN BOLD TYPE.”
The musical film is divided into two distinct parts, namely the reality in which Marie-Mai is submerged under water, and the scenes with the visions. The latter represent her originality and her highly developed artistic gift. The reality scenes are shot in black and white, while the visions appear in colour.

THE LAUNCH, A PRESENCE NOTICED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY!
Last week was the season premiere on CTV and VRAK (with French subtitles) of the Canadian TV show The Launch. Marie-Mai appears every Wednesday at 8 p.m. alongside famous producer Scott Borchetta as the official mentors. During shooting last fall, Marie-Mai was completely charmed by the concept of the show, the production team and the many rewarding encounters with world-renowned creators. The Quebec singer-songwriter is already being buzzed about among our anglophone neighbours…
WEB CAPSULES ON TOU.TV STARTING FEBRUARY 14 AND A DOCUMENTARY ON ICI TÉLÉ!
Inspired by her passion for music, Marie-Mai will be the subject of two documentary projects during this key year – web capsules in the Véro.tv section of L’EXTRA d’ICI TOU.TV starting February 14, 2019, as well as a documentary on ICI TÉLÉ this fall. Produced by Zone3 and directed by Émilie Ricard-Harvey, these two distinct projects will show her as is, authentic and unfiltered, behind the scenes during the preparation of her concert, talking about the challenges she overcame to redefine herself.
