Celine Dion is the youngest in a highly musical family of 14 and has performed since the age of five. Her career took off when she won the gold medal at the Yamaha World Song Festival in Tokyo as well as the coveted Musician's Award for Top Performer.
In 1991 Celine Dion signed with Epic U.S., delivering Unison, her first album in English, later that year. The dramatic ballad "Where Does My Heart Beat Now" gave a taste of what was to come from Dion musically, and hit number four on the American charts. The following year, Dion dueted with Peabo Bryson on the top-10 theme to Disney's animated Beauty And The Beast; she also undertook her first U.S. tour, opening for Michael Bolton. A cover of Patti LaBelle's "If You Asked Me To" from Dion's second album (partly produced by David Foster), reached number four later in 1992. Dion racked up her first U.S. number one in 1994 with a cover of Jennifer Rush's "The Power Of Love." Her third English album, The Colour Of My Love, became her most successful worldwide and in America, reaching number four. Late in 1994, Dion married her manager, 52-year old Ren Angelil.
In 1996, Celine Dion enjoyed her second U.S. number one with "Because You Loved Me" from the movie Up Close And Personal, by song-doctor Dianne Warren. Falling Into You followed; it included a moodswung version of the Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" -- Dion picked up a Grammy for this album in early 1997.
All that would pale to the titanic heights Celine Dion would reach the following year. Dion's sentimental "My Heart Will Go On" not only topped the singles chart, it helped the Titanic soundtrack become the best-selling album of 1998. The song was also included on the year's number two seller, Dion's own Let's Talk About Love.
Later in 1998, Dion returned to her roots with the release of S'il Suffisait D'aimer, recorded entirely in French. The holiday album These Are Special Times followed.
Following a 1999 New Year's Eve performance, Celine took some time off to give birth to a son and enjoy family life with him and her husband. Following a two-year break, in which her rare public performances included her singing "God Bless America" at the America: A Tribute To Heroes telethon honoring victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Celine Dion re-emerged with A New Day Has Come. Unsurprisingly, the album debuted at Number One, becoming Dion's first chart-topping debut, and fourth Number One album.
Celine Dion returned in March 2003 with another new studio effort, One Heart. However, rather than tour to support the album in the traditional style, she has taken up residency at Caesar's Palace Coliseum in Las Vegas, where there will be Celine Dion concerts five nights a week through 2006. Celine Dion received a 2003 Emmy nomination for the choreography in her Vegas extravaganza, "Celine in Las Vegas: Opening Night Live."
