Désirée Goyette

Vocalist, composer, arranger, voice-over actor Désirée Goyette is probably best known for her happy association through the years with the comic-strip characters Charlie Brown and Garfield the Cat.

A few years after the untimely death of the inimitable jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi, Désirée had the rare privilege of working for Charles M. Schulz. Paired with Guaraldi's successor Ed Bogas, Désirée contributed featured songs and underscore for several prime-time CBS network Peanuts' specials and 25 Saturday morning shows featuring Charlie Brown and Snoopy.

Additionally, Désirée has co-written all of the music and featured songs for 12 prime-time CBS network GARFIELD television specials, as well as over 100 episodes for the CBS Saturday morning series, GARFIELD AND FRIENDS.

Désirée received two Grammy nominations for her musical contributions to the world of children's recordings. One for a Disney Records release entitled FLASHBEAGLE, and another for the CBS/Epic recording entitled HERE COMES GARFIELD on which she was a featured vocalist along with Lou Rawls. Other commercial recordings include GARFIELD, AM I COOL OR WHAT? (GRP records) on which Désirée shared equal billing with Patti La Belle, The Pointer Sisters, Natalie Cole, Lou Rawls, B.B. King, Diane Schuur, The Temptations, and David Benoit. Inspirational recordings include: FROM WHERE HE STANDS a collection of original songs, THE ABUNDANCE OF PEACE featuring the music of Peter J. Hodgson, and her most recent release, HEAVENLY REST featuring the poetry of Mary Baker Eddy.

Prior to her commercial music career, Désirée appeared for two years as a co-host with comedian Rich Little in the internationally syndicated television show THE NEW YOU ASKED FOR IT. Four years later, the two again shared the stage, this time for the NBC cameras at Times Square in the world-famous MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE as Désiree played Betty Boop to Rich Little's W.C. Fields.

As a voice-over actor, Désirée's voice can be heard in toys television and
radio. Favorite roles include Barbie, Betty Boop, Petunia Pig and Garfield's nemesis, Nermal. In 1990 she had the distinct honor of performing at Carnegie Hall with David Benoit and other jazz greats in a 40th Anniversary tribute to the Peanuts comic-strip.

A graduate of The San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Désirée enjoys
composing and recording orchestral, choral and inspirational work in addition to on-going commercial projects.
