Céline Dion – Canadian Music Icon Awarded a Dubai Star9 Jan 2020
Céline Dion was born on 30th March 1968, in Quebec, Canada. Dion grew up in a family full of music aficionados, which inspired her to co-write her first single, "Ce n'était qu'un rêve", along with her mother and brother at the age of 12. This song led her to meet René Angélil, who went on to manage her skyrocketing career and later became her husband. Dion rose to international fame as a teenager after winning the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest. Shortly afterwards, she signed onto Epic Records, which resulted in the release of record-making 90's albums such as "Let's Talk About Love" and "Falling Into You". Dion has performed songs in Mandarin, Spanish, Italian and Japanese, which speaks volumes about her international fanbase. So, it comes as no surprise that she has sold 200 million records internationally and is regarded as one of the best-selling artists of all time.
