Sophie Mathilde Anastasia Garaix was born in a little town called Les Lilas, near Paris, France, in 1988. Her father is from Argentina and her mother is from France. As a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she is originally from the Lyon stake, and is now planning to move to the United States with her husband.
MathilD.G’s love for music started at a very young age where she would sing all day – every day. She studied music for eight years at the music academy and graduated from high school with a music focus. She obtained a Master of Science in Sports, Leisure & Tourism Management in 2014.
As a teenager, she began to participate in various karaoke and singing contests in France. She also sang in a Blues band and played in an orchestra as an oboist. Over the years, she was influenced by French and international singers such as Lara Fabian, Céline Dion, and also by various musicals. Today, artists such as Madilyn Bailey, David Archuleta and incoming YouTube artists have been a great part of her inspiration.
Growing up as one of the few young adults of a ward in the south of France, she suffered loneliness. Music was her only escape and it helped her live her faith more deeply. Programs such as Especially For Youth (EFY) and For the Strength of Youth (FSY) weren’t really known then.
Music has always been a refuge for Sophie in her life. It has brought her comfort, healing, and inspiration which she wants to share with others through her own music. It is only recently that MathilD.G has more profoundly developed her God-given talent for the purpose of doing good around her. Her goal is to touch the hearts of all people, but in particular the youth through her music by bringing them peace and comfort, just as music did for her in her youth. She believes that “Music vibrates and paces our lives.” Her goal has always been to make the best music she could by sharing messages of hope, love, and faith. She also loves to do music covers, and is planning on writing her own songs.
MathilD.G wants to dedicate herself to the French youth because there is a lack of musical resources in Europe and French speaking countries today. This is why she participated in the FSY Church program both in 2017 and 2018 by singing the French versions of “Choose to Stay” from the Album Ask of God, and “Peace in Christ” from the 2018 Mutual Theme. She reports the experience of singing for the Church to be an “absolute delight!”
As an incoming French artist, MathilD.G needs support and is looking for international collaboration and talents to help serve others by singing and creating inspiring videos. She is now creating music videos on social media such as YouTube and Facebook and has a lot of ideas for future projects. Her desire is to connect with and help people feel that they aren’t alone. If this is something that is important to you and that you believe in, you can make this a reality by supporting her.
MathilD.G is also a photographer who enjoys hiking and travelling. Spending time with her friends and playing board games are also some of her favorite things to do.
Some of MathilD.G’s favorite quotes:
– “It is by accomplishing small things that we achieve great things.”
– “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
– “A winner is a dreamer who never gives up.”
– “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”
In her own words: “Thank you for believing in me and my music. Thank you for making my art possible. Let’s go make the impossible possible, together.” You can also support MathilD.G through her Patreon.
