Vegas’ newest buzzword is Véronic: The one-woman phenomenon taking Bally’s Las Vegas by storm with her new show, Véronic Voices. Part impersonator show and concert, the performance pays homage to musical greats such as Carrie Underwood, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Dolly Parton, Cher, Shania Twain, Diana Ross, and many more.
Not only can she imitate more than 50 voices, her notes are pitch-perfect. Rather than being a straight-up impersonator, DiCaire possesses a silky voice that rivals these famous women from music’s past and present—astoundingly hitting the mark on some of the more distinct voices such as Adele, Christina Aguilera, and of course, Vegas mainstay Celine Dion, who could easily be her twin in both looks and voice. Accompanied by her six stunningly talented backup dancers, DiCaire crosses numerous genres, from disco to country, plus a touching segment where she goes solo on the piano, covering the likes of Alicia Keys and Norah Jones.
With the help of everything from a costume switch to a change in posture, DiCaire quickly morphs into each character, imitating their characteristics, attitude, dance moves, and mannerisms. The Beyoncé segments are especially funny.
Years ago, the Canadian comedienne caught the eye of Caesars Palace headliner Dion, who is now co-producing Voices, which is on a limited run through August 31. She was present in the audience for the show’s grand media night on June 29, cheering on her discovery among a room full of top local performers including Carrot Top, Taylor Hicks, and Human Nature. Véronic Voices is performed Thursday through Saturday. 3645 S. Las Vegas Blvd., 702-777-7776
