Born in Charlemagne on March 30, 1968 (a small city located
at 50 kilometers of Montreal, Quebec, Canada), Céline
is youngest of a family clearly music lover of 14 children.
His/her parents, both musicians, play in a small bar, and the
weekends, the family with large complete sings and plays for
the inhabitants of the small city. at the 5 years age, Céline
sings with her brothers and sisters and acquired the capacity
quickly to sing on line. With the 12 years age, with her mother
and one of her brothers, Céline composes a French song
who will change forever the course of his life. The cassette
demonstration which contains the famous song is sent to Rene
Angelil, a manager of artists respected in the medium of the
music. In January 1981, Rene if is captivated by the voice of
the young Celine, that it is given to make this one an universally
recognized artist. He goes even until mortgaging his own house
to finance the first album of Celine!
recognition of the talent of Celine starts in 1982 when it receives
the gold Medal of the Festival "Yamaha" of the International
Song in Tokyo and very coveted "Musician' S Award"
for the best interpreter. In 1983, it becomes first Canadian
to receive a gold disc in France!
In 1988, Céline
gains the prestigious contest of Eurovision where it sings in
front of 600 televiewer and spectator million through Europe,
the USSR, the Middle East, Japan and Australia.
take-off of Celine starts seriously when it records the song
titrates original band of the drawing animated "the Beautiful
one and the Animal" of Walt Disney. The song becomes number
1 and is rewarded by "Academy Award" and "Grammy
Award". "Beauty and the Beast" is the perfect
introduction for the second English album of Celine, simply
entitled Céline Dion. Four additional successes are drawn
from this sumptuous album: "Coils Edge Move Mountains,"
Toilets From The Moon, "Yew You Asked Me To" and "Did
You Give Enough Love". In Canada, the album is six times
disc of platinum and gains an incredible number of "Juno
But it is with the
exit of "The Colour Of My Love" that Céline
fulfills her promise to become one of the pop figures most famous
of her time. Once again, the album contains a film song - a
duet with the English singer Clive Griffin on traditional "the
When I Fall In Coils", which forms part of the Original
Band of triumphal "the Sleepless night in Seattle".
The album inclu also a recovery: a sublime interpretation of
the success of 1985 by Jennifer Rush "The Power Of Love".
This album still proves, as if it were still necessary, that
the powerful voice of Celine and its dramatic style are as fish
in water on ballades ("The Colour Of My Love") as
on endiablés rates/rhythms "Misled". This album
is an enormous success in Canada and in the world.
With the album '
Of eux', Céline makes a success of what each one thought
of being impossible - to introduce the French music in top of
the British "charts". At this point in time the whole
world discovers the talent of Celine Dion. "Of them"
was the best sale of the decade in France. Its collaboration
with Jean-Jacques Goldman is very enriching for the singer who
finds in these songs the words and the melodies that it sought
for a long time. "tubes" are extracted from this marvellous
album: "So that you still like me", "I do not
know", "the ballet", "the Last will be the
one of the greatest voices of the pop music, it crosses all
the barriers - even those of the language - using its "hits"
successive. Impressing the rate/rhythm with which it records
its albums, turns its clips vidéos, occurs in concerts
and appears with the four corners of the sphere for emissions
TV or official receptions to receive a "Award". It
seems that Céline has only very little time to devote
itself to another thing... But it is not true when they are
important causes. Inter alia, Céline used her many talents
for the cause of "Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation".
In fact, one of the songs more moving by Celine ("Flies,"
on the album "Of them", translated later into English
-"Fly" - on the album "Falling Into You")
is dedicated to the memory of his/her niece, Karine, which was
carried by this disease.
Left in March 1996,
"Falling Into You" becomes the album more sold this
year; it is number one in 11 countries and is named "Album
of the year" and "better album" at the time of
the 39ème ceremony of "Grammy Awards". The
album, from today, was sold with more than 25 million specimens
in the world.
"Let' S Talk
About Coils" is in the line of its album to both "Grammy
Awards". Recorded between London, New York and Los Angeles,
"Let' S Talk About Coils" includes/understands many
guests of which largest interpreters, type-setters and producers
of the moment.
Always eager to satisfy
its French-speaking public, it leaves, at the end of 1998, a
new French album: "If It were enough to like". writing
again by Jean-Jacques Goldman and, for two titles ("Papillion"
and "Ground") by Erik Benzi, this album is a true
Celine was to leave
a trace of her triumphal world round "Let' S Talk butt
Love Turn". She chooses her two historical concerts of
June 1999 at the Stage from France in Paris (more than 180.000
spectators in two evenings!) to offer to its admirors a new
album "LIVE" perfectly entitled: "In the Heart
of the Stage". Last nine French titles, two in English
and a "Medley" of its successes are with the program.
The album leaves exactly a year after "If it were enough
to like" while at the same time this last is always hoisted
at the top of the "charts" of the hexagon. In the
tread, to celebrate the new millenium, "All the Way...
decade of song has" leaves. This album is to 50% new, to
50% a compilation of its best English successes. Final bouquet
before the new millenium: It decides on December 31, 1999 (as
it was envisaged besides) to tell to its good-byes at the time
of its last show "the Last Of Celine Dion" in Montreal.
January 25, 2001,
is born Rene-Charles, the "p' tit prince" as the family
calls it. Rene and Céline start to think of the projects
of his return: Celine must go up on scene as from March 2003
in Las Vegas for one three years duration. She launches a range
of optical and solar glasses for women. The book "Celine
Dion, My Life My Dream" leaves as well as a compilation
"the Essential ones Celine Dion". before the exit
in March 2002 of "A New Day Has Come". The singer
sings more with her heart with her voice. Song "A New Day
Has Come" is a success "I' m Alive" also.
March 24, 2003, to
the day before of a series in 600 concerts which will be given
during three years to Las Végas, leaves the English album
"One Heart". The same day leaves the first perfume
which is called quite simply "Celine Dion"
Worker fierce, Celine
Dion connects albums, concerts and television programs without
ever tiring and his audience is constantly renewing. For his
latest album, "Taking Chance" (2007) she has surrounded
herself with a new team to deliver a new casket as his voice
remains dedicated to..
