See Pictures of Céline Dion before and after she loses weight

Celine Dion

She gradually lost weight after losing her husband, but now she seems to be doing better. For her contribution to music, the music industry owes Celine Dion lots of praise. We equate it with her all-time hit “My Heart Will Go On”-the Titanic theme song.

Céline Dion, in full Céline Marie Claudette Dion, (born March 30, 1968, Charlemagne, Quebec, Canada), French Canadian pop singer, known for her vocal prowess and her passionate showmanship, who achieved international superstardom in the 1990s. Working primarily in the pop ballad tradition, she recorded numerous hit albums in both French and English and was the recipient of several prestigious awards.

Early Life and French Albums

Celine Marie Claudette Dion was born on March 30, 1968, in Charlemagne, Quebec, Canada. The youngest of 14 children of Adhemar and Therese Dion, she grew up in a close-knit musical family. Her parents formed a singing group, Dion's Family, and they toured Canada when Dion was still an infant. They later opened a piano bar, where the 5-year-old Dion would perform to the delight of customers.

At the age of 12, Dion recorded a demo tape of a song she had written with her mother. They sent the tape to the manager and producer Rene Angelil, who handled the career of popular French singer Ginette Reno. After hearing the tape and inviting Dion to perform for him in person, Angelil signed her immediately under the condition that he would have complete control over her career. He mortgaged his own home to finance her debut album, La Voix du bon Dieu.

Celine Dion’s Career

Celine Dion met her manager and her future husband, Rene Angelil in 1981, and he sponsored her first record Lа vоіх du Воn Dіеu, and it became a number 1 hit in Canada. She was awarded the Top performer after her performance at Yamaha World Popular Song Festival in 1982, in Japan.

She got a gold record in France and many Felix Awards. She even won at the Eurovision song contest in 1988.

She released 26 studio albums, 7 live albums, 21 box sets, and 17 compilation albums. She released her first English language studio album in 1990, and it was called Unison. That album was sold in more than 3 million copies worldwide since then.
