Celine Dion was born on 30 March 1968 in Quebec, Canada, as the youngest of 14 children into a poor family. Her father was a butcher and her mother was a homemaker. Because of this big family, she spent her childhood in poverty but generally, she was a happy child.
Despite being a poor family her parents were into music and they even had a piano bar, so naturally, she was with music from the very beginning. Her first appearance happened in 1973 at the age of five when she sang at her brother’s wedding.
When she was 12, Celine composed a song, in collaboration with her mother and brother. This demo tape was sent to music manager Rene Angelil who immediately recognized the young girl’s potential and mortgaged his own home to finance her debut album, The Voice of God. It was an instant hit and Celine became a star in Quebec.
During her career, she received some rewards including:
Five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for ‘Falling into You’ and Record of the Year for ‘My Heart Will Go On’.
By 2004 and was presented with the Chopard Diamond Award at the World Music Awards for becoming the best-selling female artist of all time.
Several Félix Awards, including "Best Female Performer" and "Discovery of the Year".
Her most popular song was the one she sang in the movie Titanic. The song was “my heart will go on” and it became a hit all over the world.
She married her manager, Rene Angelil, on 17 December 1994. She had known him for a long time, having first met him in 1980 when she was a 12-year-old girl and him, a 38-year-old man. The couple has three children.
