Born the youngest of fourteen children in rural Canada, Celine Dion came from an extremely musical family. Her parents were both musicians and ran a small club nearby, where the whole Dion family would gather at weekends to perform for the local community.

Celine began singing on stage at the age of five, and by the time she was twelve had written a song in French that would attract the attention of personal manager Rene Angelil, later to become her husband.

Angelil was so convinced of Celine’s potential that he re-mortgaged his own house to fund her debut album. By 1983, she had become the first Canadian to receive a gold record in France.

In 1988, Celine, already a superstar in her native Quebec, won the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin, and shortly after cemented her international success by releasing the soundtrack to the Disney film 'Beauty and the Beast'. This achievement earned her a number one single, an Oscar, and a Grammy.

Her hit album 'The Colour of My Love' and the single from it, 'Think Twice', topped their respective charts for five weeks running, the first time this had happened since the Beatles managed it in 1965.

Celine’s most famous track, 'My Heart Will Go On', from the motion picture 'Titanic', featured both on the album 'Titanic' and 'Let’s Talk About Love', both albums selling twenty-seven million copies each.

In 1999, Celine decided to take a break from show business to concentrate on her family, and baby Rene-Charles was born in 2001.

2002 saw the return of Celine Dion to the limelight with her album 'A New Day Has Come'. The following year, the singer committed herself to performing five nights a week for the next three years in her own Las Vegas show. The ninety-minute extravaganza is held at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in a 4000-seat arena designed especially for her show.
