Personalities | Celine Dion | Nineties | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1968)

Dion had already released a handful of French-language albums in her native Canada before her English-singing debut Unison (1990). Hit ballads like ‘Where Does My Heart Beat Now’ revealed a potent singer. Her emotional duet with Peabo Bryson on The Beauty And The Beast movie theme (1992) was a monster hit and the first of many successful soundtrack songs including ‘My Heart Must Go On’ (Titanic, 1997).

Albums like The Colour Of My Love (1994) and Falling For You (1998) generated a constant flow of hit singles and award after award. Although taking a child-bearing career break in 2001 Dion remains a significant artist, especially after agreeing in 2002 to undertake 600 concerts at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas over a three-year period, which suitably began with the release of new album One Heart (2003). Miracles followed in 2004.
