What a nice surprise to have been given a small mention in an article in FRANCE. The article is called Le « Se canto » de YouTube highlighting my single Qu’est-ce qu’on fait là in newspaper Centre Presse Aveyron published December 8, 2019 in the section Music.
What an amazing experience to have my life partner, friends and amazing musicians performing my songs. It was a thrill to be in their presence. On November 26, 2019 we did the Video Clips, created by David Simard, of the songs Qu’est-ce qu’on fait là, Je suis tannée and New Launch single La vie me sourit.
Present was guest musician’s producer, arranger, guitarist and friend, John Hagopian, Producer, arranger and drummer Geoff Lang, pianist, arranger and president of MoonSun Musik, Michael Litresits and bassist, Jean De Sousa. We spent the afternoon together performing the promotional singles of my album It’s My Dream.
Many thanks to John for your generous energy and friendship to get this done no matter all the obstacles. To David Simard and team, for producing great videos in such a short time. Thanks to Amelie Bertrand for giving ma a great look (hair and make-up) that day. Many thanks Jean for your love and for being there always.

La vie me sourit
Je suis tannée
Qu’est-ce qu’on fait là
Lyrics: Karine Ullern
Music: Fabiola Cacciatore with John Hagopian
I love this song. A beautiful musical adventure between France and Canada. Lyrics written by my girlfriend in France, Karine Ullern, on behalf of artist and author Rose Sophie. This sweet song, with a pop sound and intelligent and picturesque lyrics tells the story of famous characters, perhaps Barbie and Ken, who are stuck in a postcard, beach. The melody repeated on the ukulele that I created reminds us of the waves of water and the good weather. All this with a winning arrangement from John Hagopian.

It seems that I am going back in time with many artists I met over the years. One of those artists is Luc De Larochellière. Back in the late 90’s I opened for Luc at a strange happening Gala called “Grand Gala des Jobs Citron” in the springtime, in a High School in Montreal. Nothing happened the way it should have happened. Luc De Larochellière was the main act and Club Privé, my band was the opening act. The evening was a flop to say the least. I recall Luc getting inpatient with the technical team as things were not moving quickly enough. He acted like a Diva complaining about everything, not a personable artist of what I remembered and decided to do the show first, instead of the opening act. We thought that was strange and had to go along with the order. Once Luc Performed, we had but 5 minutes for sound checks and then head on stage not knowing how we were going to hear ourselves. Within 15 minutes we headed to the stage and looked around to find the audience. With but a few remaining in the hall, everyone left after Luc’s performed. It was indeed a lemon of a Gala, I recall. With us being so disappointed.06
Luc was presenting at a SPACQ event in June 2019 and I thought it would be fun to meet him again after so many years. At the end of his presentation, I recall not recognizing this Artist. He was personable, friendly to the audience and very honest about his youth days. I had a chance to meet him again and to recall being his opening act. To my surprise, he first said. “I am so sorry, I was a jerk then, thinking I was it”. I laughed and appreciated his honesty. He barely recalled the shows, as he did so many when he became an overnight success. In a welcoming gesture, we took a picture together. I was happy that I had now formed New memories of this artist and colleague.
To my surprise walking home in October. I discovered a familiar face in the crown at the Cartier des festival. It was close to Halloween and certain individuals took full advantage to scare anyone. On person certainly did not need a costume. I met the famous Luc Plamondon, French-Canadian lyricist and music executive, best known for his work on the musicals Starmania and Notre-Dame de Paris. What a nice guy!
Thanks Michel Laflamme for being the first to buy my Album It’s My Dream.
Thanks Fatima Zahmoun for being the first to buy 0n-line my Album It’s My Dream.
As Musical Director, Performer and Artist, I lead a team of singers, musicians and conductor for the show”Concordia’s Got Talent Concert, Beatles Review”, held on November 23, 2016 at the DB Clark Concordia University.
The Spectacle was a great success and raised $2200 for Centraide. I keep happy memories of this show!
On this date, I also launch my Album It’s My Dream and performed one of the title tracks It Gives Me A Reason. What a thrill for me it was to have finally realized my dream in the making of this album, which I worked on since December 2013.
My work with Centraide has begun a month ago in preparing, rehearsing and fine tuning the show at Concordia University, Concordia’s Got Talent 2016, held this year once again at the DB Clark Hall, 1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd.
As Singer, Musical Coordinator and Director along with nine singers with the help of Krip Epps pianist, And Musical Arranger we are doing a Beatles show.
Here’s a quote from a recent Concordia News story done on the show.
A tribute to Prince? Maybe some Stevie Wonder? These are just some of the choices Fabiola Cacciatore (BFA 07) is mulling over as the musical director of Concordia’s Got Talent, an annual campus fundraising concert for the United Way/Centraide.
“It’s really gratifying to share my skills and raise money for an organization that does so much good,” says the recording artist and executive assistant in the university’s Financial Services. Cacciatore was one of 40 volunteers in 2015 who helped Concordia raise $187,174 — 98.5 per cent of last year’s campaign goal.
