Celine Dion Las Vegas
Celine Dion Biography
A Celine Dion biography reads like a list of one great accomplishment after another—the long journey this Canadian singer has traveled goes from her humble beginnings in Quebec to the worldwide popularity that has brought her back to the stage at the Caesars Palace Colosseum.
Born March 30, 1968 in Charlemagne, Quebec, to Adhemar and Therese Dion, Celine is the youngest of fourteen children. The musical family toured and sang while Celine was an infant, and when Celine was five years old, she became part of the singing troupe herself. At age 12, the Celine Dion biography takes a life-changing turn when the young singer recorded an original piece of work written by herself and her mother and sent the recording to well-known producer, Rene Angelil.
Impressed with the young songstress, Angelil quickly signed Celine to a contract. Her debut album, La Voix du bon Dieu (The Voice of God), was financed by Angelil who had mortgaged his home in order to provide the funds for the album. By the age of 14, Celine was performing all over the world. She sang at the Yamaha World Song Festival in Tokyo and won the coveted Gold Medal and the Musician’s Award for Top Performer. In 1983, at age 15, more Celine Dion news was made when the budding diva received France’s Gold Record, making her the first Canadian to receive that recognition.
By her eighteenth birthday, Celine had recorded nine French albums. She recorded Unison, her first English album, in the early 1990s and began releasing her music widely in the US. Some of the best known Celine Dion songs are from this decade. Her “Where Does My Heart Beat Now” reached the number four position on the American charts while her duet with Peabo Bryson in the Disney film Beauty and the Beast reached the top 10 list. With numerous Celine Dion albums and singles to choose from for her shows, her popularity soared and she decided to embark on her first American tour.
Celine Dion songs have won the Felix and Juno awards in Canada, American Music Awards and Grammys in the U.S., and World Music Awards in Europe. Although almost all of the Celine Dion albums and songs have been big hits, one of her biggest was “My Heart Will Go On,” the theme from the romantic film Titanic.
Celine Dion news made major headlines again when she and Rene announced they were a couple. After getting engaged in 1991, they married in 1994 at Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal. Their first son, Rene-Charles, was born in 2001, and Celine took a two-year break from performing before coming to Las Vegas in 2003 for her A New Day concert series at Caesars Palace.
An extensive tour followed with the Taking Chances 2008-2009 concert that kicked off in South Africa followed by concerts in Malaysia, China, Korea and Japan followed by Europe, the UK and finally the U.S. The next chapter in the Celine Dion biography begins with her second concert series at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. After beginning March 15, 2011, these concerts are among the best shows in Vegas, as they’re designed to make the most of Celine’s natural vocal talent and showmanship.
