Ray St. Germain
Ray is proud to be Métis. He started in show business at the age of 14 entertaining people at talent shows and singing wherever they would let him. When he was 16 he was asked to join a traveling radio show western band. At 18 Ray won a Cross Canada CBC Television Talent Contest called "Talent Caravan". That started him on a career hosting television shows for the CBC that lasted for more than 10 years.
In 1978 Ray wrote, produced, and hosted a series of television shows for Global Television which won the Can-Pro Gold Award for "Best New Variety Show." The series was renewed every year up to 1990, some 200 shows over thirteen years and it was syndicated nationally!
Ray has enjoyed touring Canada and the world especially when "The Ray St. Germain Show" was asked to entertain the troops overseas. Traveling to Germany, Israel, and Cyprus, Ray continued to perform live shows at Casinos, Fairs, and Exhibitions.
Some of the awards presented to Ray were:
Aboriginal Order of Canada - Ottawa
Aboriginal Wall of Honour - Winnipeg Friendship Centre
Order of the Sash - Saskatoon & Prince Albert
Manitoba Association of Country Arts (MACA) - Entertainer of the Year - Song of the year - Male Vocalist - Recording Artist
