About Celine Dion
Celine Dion is a Canadian singer and businesswoman. Born into a large family from Charlemagne, Quebec, Dion emerged as a teen star in the French-speaking world after her manager and future husband René Angélil mortgaged his home to finance her first record. Dion first gained international recognition in the 1980s by winning both the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festival and the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest where she represented Switzerland. Following a series of French albums during the 1980s, she signed on to Epic Records in the United States. In 1990, Dion released her debut English-language album, Unison, establishing herself as a viable pop artist in North America and other English-speaking areas of the world.
On 13 August 2014, Dion announced the indefinite postponement of all her show business activities, including the Celine residency, and the cancellation of her Asia Tour, because of the worsening of her husband’s health after he underwent the removal of a cancerous tumor in December 2013. However, on 20 March 2015, Dion announced that she will be returning to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in late August 2015. On 14 January 2016, Dion canceled the rest of the January performances due to her husband’s and her brother’s death from cancer. Dion resumed the residency on 23 February to a sold-out crowd and rave reviews.
In 2016 and 2017, Dion toured Europe and Canada with two sold-out concert tours. Dion also recorded “How Does a Moment Last Forever” for the Beauty and the Beast: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, released in March 2017. Her compilation, Un peu de nous topped the chart in France in July and August 2017.
