(Charlemagne, Québec, 1968) French-Canadian pop singer. It premiered on stage when he was 5 years, interpreting Canadian traditional songs, and 12 recorded their first demo. His performance was La voix du bon Dieu, in 1981, which also published other work with Christmas songs. During the 1980s he published several albums in French, and in 1988 won the Eurovision Song Contest representing France.
1990 was the year of edition of their first album in English, Unison, which contained the singles "(If there was) any other way" and "Where does my heart beat now". Two years later published the Celine Dionalbum, which included the main theme (winner of a Grammy and an Oscar) Disney film beauty and the beast, and that Celine played a Duet with American singer Peabo Bryson.
Despite its victory in the Anglo market, he did not forget her francophone audience, and recorded an album with ten songs by Canadian composer Luc Plamondon, which included "a Garçon pas comme les autres (Ziggy)" or "Des mots qui sonnent". Concerts given in France during those years resulted in two live albums: Céline Dion to Olympia, in 1994, and Live in Paris, recorded at the end of 1995.
On December 17, 1994 he married its discoverer and manager, René Angélil, twenty-six years older than her. That same year had released their third album in English, The colour of my love, which contained a version of the song "The power of love" (which already had become successful singer Jennifer Rush in the 1980s) and "When I fall in love", which was part of the soundtrack of the movie something to remember.
In 1995 reissued an album in French, Deux or The French Album. This album included songs such as "Pour que tu' m'aimes encore" or "Regarde-moi", composed by singer-songwriter Jean-Jacques Goldman. That same year participated in the tribute album to singer-songwriter Carole King, Tapestry Revisited, playing the theme "(You make me feel like) to natural woman".
In 1996 he published Falling into You, it received the Grammy for best female Pop singer and performed at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Atlanta. In 1998 the theme central James Cameron film Titanic was its success "My heart will go on", winner of an Oscar that year and four Grammy Awards in 1999, two of them for the interpreter.
The song was included on the album of Celine Dion Let´s talk about love, attended by Barbra Streisand, in the song "Tell him"; Luciano Pavarotti on "I hate you then I love you"; the Bee Gees on "Immortality"; and Bryan Adams the song that gave the title to the album. That same year he participated along with Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and Gloria Estefan in the "Divas Live" concert.
A fact that often go unnoticed in the career of Celine Dion is that the first lyricist for King Crimson, Pete Sinfield, has written to him some of their most beautiful texts. Letters from Sinfield to Celine, without being so poetic as that they wrote to the Group of Robert Fripp, reach a height well above the average within the massive pop songs. In the summer of 1999, Celine Dion husband fell ill and that led to the star to announce its withdrawal from the scenarios, in successful apotheosis of the theme song from Titanic.
After a long hiatus away from the stage and recording industry, the French-Canadian singer returned in March 2003 to present their new projects; on the one hand, the release of the album One heart and, on the other, the implementation of an ambitious show, produced by Franco Dragone, programming for a period of three years six hundred performances of the artist in the famous completo Palas Caesar in Las Vegas.
