Celine Marie Claudette Dion (born March 30, 1968 in Charlemagne, Quebec)

is a Canadian pop singer, occasional songwriter and actress. Born to a

large, impoverished family, Dion emerged as a teen star in the

French-speaking world after her manager and future husband Rene Angelil

mortgaged his home to finance her first record. In 1990, she released

the anglophone album Unison, establishing herself as a viable pop artist

in North America and other English-speaking areas of the world.


Dion had first gained international recognition in the 1980s by winning

both the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festival and the 1988 Eurovision

Song Contest. Following a series of French albums in the early 1980s,

she signed on to Sony Records in 1986. During the 1990s, with the help

of Angelil, she achieved worldwide success with several English and

French albums, becoming one of the most successful artists in pop music

history. However, in 1999 at the height of her success, Dion announced a

temporary retirement from entertainment in order to start a family and

spend time with her husband, who had been diagnosed with cancer. She

returned to the music scene in 2002 and signed a three-year (later

extended to almost five years) contract to perform nightly in a

five-star theatrical show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.


Dion's music has been influenced by genres ranging from rock and R&B to

gospel and classical. While her releases have often received mixed

critical reception, she is renowned for her technically skilled and

powerful vocals. In 2004, after surpassing 175 million in album sales

worldwide, she was presented with the Chopard Diamond Award at the World

Music Awards for becoming the best selling female artist of all time. In

April 2007 Sony BMG announced that Celine Dion had sold over 200 million

albums worldwide.
