Celine Dion, Communicating From the Heart
Time to show off a famous Canadian singer we all know here in the North, eh?
Celine Dion, born Céline Marie Claudette Dion, was born on March 30, 1968, in Charlemagne, Quebec. Born into a large family, Dion emerged as a teen star in Canada, with a series of French-language albums during the 1980s.
DIT Web Solutions would like to acknowledge Celine’s amazing songs and entertainment, and for having the most powerful vocal cords!
Dion is the best-selling Canadian recording artist of all time, as well as the best-selling French-language artist of ALL TIME!!
Her reach is far beyond her homeland of Canada.
Check this out:
Celine Dion has won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. Throughout four decades, she has been referred to as the “Priestess of Pop,” and has received two Honorary Doctorates in Music degrees from Berklee College of Music and Université Laval.
Billboard named her the “Queen of Adult Contemporary,” for having the most number-one songs on the radio format for a female artist. She was the second-best-selling female artist in the US following the Nielsen SoundScan, the 8th all-time best-performing top female artist in the United States, and the sixth all-time best-performing female soloist in Billboard 200 history.
In 2003, she was honored by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) for selling over 50 million albums in Europe. In 2008, Dion was recognized as the best-selling international artist in South Africa. By the end of 2009, Dion was recognized by Los Angeles Times as the decade’s top-earning artist, with combined album sales and concert revenue from the past decade eclipsing $748 million.
These are incredible statistics!!!
My current singing teacher is always relaying to me that singing is the art of communication and that you really have to communicate to your audience. You only have to watch Celine singing to see she gets emotional, she wears her heart on her sleeve, and really conveys her message to her whole audience.
In addition to having the best vocal cords on Earth, it helps to have the following hits:
- “Because You Loved Me”
- “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now”
- “The Power of Love”
- “Where Does My Heart Beat Now”
- “My Heart Will Go On (Titanic Song)”
- “That’s the Way It Is”
- “All by myself”
- “Beauty and the Beast”
- “I’m Alive”
Celine’s cover of “Un garçon pas comme les autres (Ziggy),” became a smash hit in France, reaching No. 2 and being certified Gold. In Quebec, the album was certified Gold the day it was released.
I’ve listened to this particular song and watched this cover performance many times, but Celine took it to new levels and penetrated her audience with the lyrics. I felt that it would crack my television! www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdRsfybkbDk
And if you are not one of the 15 million people to have watched her sing with Josh Groban, “The Prayer,” stop what you are doing and watch this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhxIjRO6WjI
