Clairette Oddera
Birth: Apr. 3, 1919
Death: Oct. 28, 2008

Comedian, Singer. Originally born Claire Oddera in Marseille, France, she adopted the stage name of Clairette on the suggestion of French comedian, Fernandel. Making her performing debut in the 1939 movie "La fille du puisatier" starring French legends Raimu and Fernandel, she went on to make a name for herself as a comedian and singer on stage, screen, and radio. In 1948 she met French singer Georges Guétary and joined him on his 1949 to 1955 cabaret tours in Canada and New York. Settling in Montreal in 1956, she helped to establish the first boîte à chansons in Quebec before opening her own place in 1959, which she called Chez Clairette. It was at her club that many future stars of French Canadian music, such as Robert Charlebois, Diane Dufresne, France Castel, Claude Dubois, and Sylvain Lelièvre, would get their starts. In 1982 she published her autobiography entitled "Clairette, du soleil à travers mes larmes." Known and honored by many as la mere supérieure, or Mother Superior, she was made a Chevalier de l'Ordre National de Quebec in 2002 and a Member of the Order of Canada in 2003. She is the older sister of French singer Danielle Oddera. (bio by: G.Photographer)
