"Roch Armand Joseph Voisine", O.C. (born 26 March 1963) is an Acadian-Québécois singer-songwriter, actor, and radio and TV host who lives in Montreal, Quebec, when he is not performing in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Roch Voisine was born in Edmundston, New Brunswick, but grew up in Saint Basile, to Réal Voisine, mayor of Notre-Dame-du-Lac, Québec, and former English teacher, and Zélande Robichaud, former nurse. He is the oldest of three children: his brother, Marc, was born in 1965, and his sister, Janice, was born in 1966. They work today as a nurse and hair stylist, respectively. Roch lived with his paternal grandparents, Maurille and Dorina Racine Voisine, from age four, when his parents divorced, until he was eight, when he went to live with his father. Roch considers these grandparents very influential on him, even as an adult. Roch moved to Notre-Dame-du-Lac when he was 12.
He aspired to be a professional hockey player until he was severely injured playing baseball in 1981.
