MONTREAL – Ginette Reno has been given a clean bill of health by her cardiologist and the award-winning chanteuse is set to sing the national anthem at Tuesday’s Habs game at the Bell Centre.
After Reno suffered a heart attack in January, there has since been concerns about her health.
Dr. Jean-Lucien Rouleau is a cardiologist at the Montreal Heart Institute and he said that when he heard that the singer had concerns about her heart and was going to see a cardiologist, he didn’t realize it would be him.
“She came into my office to ask: will she be able to sing?” he noted in a video released by the Institute.
“When she sings, it’s intense. There’s a shot of adreneline, it has a considerable impact on the heart,” he said.
“But there isn’t a problem. Evidently, I said yes.”
