Dominique Fils-Aimé (born on July 10, 1984) is a Canadian singer-songwriter who rose to fame after her participation in the third season of reality talent show La Voix. Born and raised in Montreal by Haitian parents, Fils-Aimé grew up surrounded by music, especially soul and jazz. After making the rounds at the city’s jam session circuit with the band Tuff Love Groovy Therapy, she decided to try her luck by auditioning for La Voix in 2015. Fils-Aimé made the cut and quickly became a fan favorite, but was eliminated in the semifinals by Matt Holubowski. That same year, she started to gain momentum with the release of The Red EP, a collection of soul-infused pop songs that showcased the singer’s versatility. She followed up with Nameless (2016), the first instalment of a trilogy that explores the history of African-American music. Inspired by Maya Angelou’s poems, the album offered Fils-Aimé’s unique take on blues and early R&B. Following a couple of appearances at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal in 2018, she delved into the world of jazz with Stay Tuned! (2019), which won a Felix Award for Best Jazz Album of the Year.
