If I would like to make the best compliment to the singer, it would be: he has his own style.
You hear him singing, and you do not even to know the song - it's Daniel Lavoie.

Daniel is the official presenter of FRDJ in Canada since 1988. This fund was established in Canada in 1974 by the parents of children suffering from diabetes and is subsidized to fight this disease. FRDJ is included in International Research Foundation of Juvenile Diabetes founded in 1970. This is a very touching video about little grateful girl.

Researches in the field of diabetes really made a great progress, but we expect, that the number of patients will double in Quebec in one generation, because, in particular, the aging of the nation. Each new victim of the disease, as children diabetes is an especially dangerous form, sees its life reducing by at least in 15 years. «10500 new cases of diabetes (34 per day) are diagnosed annually in Quebec. Unfortunately, there are more winners in a diabetes lottery, than in a Quebec Lotto» - imagined Daniel.
