Biography

celinelittle.jpg

The youngest of 14 children, Quebec native CÚline Dion recorded her first demo at age 12, wich caught the ear of local Svengali Rene Angelil. By the time Dion was 22, she had recorded four pop albums in French under Angelil's guidance, all of wich went platinum in Canada.
In 1991 Dion signed with Epic U.S, delivering "UNISON", her first album in English, later that year.
The overblown ballad"Where does my heart beat now" gave a taste of what was to come from Dion musically, and hit number four on the American charts.
The following year, Dion dueted with Peabo Bryson on the top-10 theme to Disney's animated Beauty and the Beast; she also undertook her first U.S tour, opening for Bolton. A cover of Patti Labelle's "If you asked me to" from Dion's second album(partly produced by master of bombast David Foster), reached number four later in 1992.
Dion racked up her first U.S number one with a cover of Jennifer Rush's" The power of love".
Her third English album, "The Colour Of My Love", became her most succesful worldwide and in America, reaching number four. Late in 1994, Dion married the 52-year old Rene Angelil.

In 1996, CÚline Dion enjoyed her second U.S number one with "Because You Loved Me" from the movie Up Close And Personal, by songdoctor Dianne Warren.
An album, "Falling Into You", followed; it included a memorably histrionic version of Eric Carmens's already histrionic " All By Myself". CÚline Dion picked up a Grammy for the album in early 1997, further cementing her place as one of the most succesful pop acts today!

All that would pale to the "Titanic" heights CÚline Dion would reach the following year. CÚline Dion's maudlin " My Heart Will Go On" not only topped the singles chart, it helped the "Titanic" soundtrack become the best selling album of 1998. The song was also included on the year's number two seller, CÚline Dion's own "Let's Talk About Love"
 
If the commercial successwan't enough, CÚline Dion added to her trophy shelf when the James Horner-penned tune won a Academy Award for Best Original song from motion picture, the second Dion-sungsong to score the honor, following her recording of "The Beauty And The Beast".
 
Later in 1998, Dion returned to her roots with the release of " S'IllSuffisiat D'Aimer", recorded entirely in French. The holiday album "These Are Special Times" followed

In 1999, CÚline Dion issued "All The Way...A Decade Of Song", a greatest hits collection that featured seven new songs. However, all things must come to an end, or at least go on hiatus, and that's what CÚline Dion did following a 1999 New Years Eve performance.
 
 
During her time off, CÚline Dion gave birth to a son, Rene-Charles, sired by her manager/husband Rene Angelil. Following a two-year breack, in which her rare public performances included her singing"God Bless America" at the American: A Tribute To Heroes telethon honoring victims of The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, CÚline Dion re-emerged with "A New Day Has Come". Naturally, the album debuted at Number One, becoming CÚline Dion's first chart-topping debut, and fourth Number One album.

CÚline Dion returned in March 2003 with another new studio effort," One Heart". However, the singer won't tour to support the album in the traditional sence.
Instead, she's taking up residency at Caesers Palace Coliseum in Las Vegas, where she'll appear five nights a week through 2006!
