At 12, Dion composed her first song and was discovered by music manager Rene Angelil, who became her mentor and later her husband. She released her debut album, "La voix du bon Dieu," in 1981 and quickly became a sensation in the French-speaking world.
In 1990, Dion released her first English-language album, "Unison," which included the hit single "Where Does My Heart Beat Now." Her next album, "The Colour of My Love," included her signature song, "The Power of Love," which catapulted her to international fame.
Throughout the 1990s, Celine continued to release hit albums, including "Falling into You" and "Let's Talk About Love," which included the smash hit "My Heart Will Go On" from the movie "Titanic." She has won multiple Grammy Awards, and her powerful voice and emotional performances have made her one of the most beloved singers in the world.
Celine has three children. Her oldest son is named Ren-Charles, and she also has twin boys named Nelson and Eddy.
Offstage, Celine has faced personal challenges, including the deaths of her husband, Rene, who passed away in 2016 after a long battle with cancer, and her brother, who died in 2020.
Celine has entertained millions, performed over 800 concerts, sold over 200 million albums, and now sadly suffers from the very painful Stiff Person Syndrome. This rare neurological disorder affects one in a million. She has cancelled all her tour dates for 2023 and 2024.
