This show stands out from the competition, starting with the performer’s voice, which is extremely close to that of the American-born French singer. Accompanied by six musicians and background singers, Benoit Labonté takes on 25 classic Dassin hits in their entirety, songs that had an unmistakeable impact on so many generations of fans. Songs such as "Si tu t’appelles mélancolie", "Les Champs-Élisées", "Ça va pas changer le monde", "Le café des 3 colombes", "Et si tu n’existais pas", "L’été indien", as well as "Dans les yeux d’Émilie, "the song that conjures up scene of love through the seasons in Québec and "Les plus belles années de ma vie", Dassin’s personal favorite.
