Quebecer and professional noise maker headed to Canada’s Got Talent finals

"To make people happy,” is what Geneviève Côté, a Quebecer headed to the finals of Canada’s Got Talent, says is the reason behind her act that continues to stun Canadians. Felisha Adam reports.

While it might sound like a recording of the outdoors, the voice of Quebecer and professional noisemaker Geneviève Côté is astonishing audiences as she makes it to the finals of Canada’s Got Talent.

“I do my act to make people happy,” says Côté.

The finalist from Laval, north of Montreal, says her ability to replicate sounds around her was always something that came naturally.

“I’m passionate. I love sound,” she says, adding that whenever she hears a new sound, it’s very hard for her not to try and imitate it. Now mastering over 300 sounds, she started when she was three years old, her first ever sound, a creaking door.

Côté receiving Howie’s Golden Buzzer when she auditioned says she’s ready for the Canada’s Got Talent Finals, but win or lose, after 20 years of hard work, she will always be thankful for the experience.

Côté’s message for others follow your dreams, and anything is possible, “even if life is difficult, go get your dream. You can achieve the impossible, if you believe in it. So make some noise and go do what you want to do!” she says.

Canada’s Got Talent two-hour live finale airs Tuesday, May 16th at 8 p.m on CITY TV. The winner will take home a $150,000 grand prize and the opportunity to perform in “America’s Got Talent Presents: SUPERSTARS Live” at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
