D’eux, which was recorded and released in 1995, became the most popular and bestselling French album in music history. In 2004, the singer earned a prize at World Music Awards for selling 175 million copies of her albums. At the moment, the number already exceeds 220 million. In 2017, Forbes magazine put Celine on the list of the best-paid singers in the world.
The singer is often called one of the most influential voices in pop music. She is compared to such big stars as Whitney Houston. Dion created several soundtracks for Hollywood movies. The most famous one is “My Heart Will Go On” for Titanic (1997). In 2018, she recorded another soundtrack “Ashes” to the superhero movie Deadpool 2.
Dion’s personal life wasn’t as successful as her career. For many years, she has been battling reproductive system problems. In 10 years, she underwent two surgeries. In May 2010, Celine and Rene finally announced the long-awaited pregnancy. In October, Dion gave birth to healthy twins. In December, the singer appeared with her children on the cover of one of the largest Canadian magazines. The same year, Celine became a Goodwill Ambassador in one of the UN programs.
The beginning of 2016 was very tough for the singer. In January, Rene died from cancer. He was 73. Two days later, Dion’s brother Daniel passed away. He was just 59 years old. These untimely deaths were a big hit for Celine, who managed to pull herself together and continue working.
In 2018, the singer released a compilation album, The Best So Far... 2018 Tour Edition.
Celine Dion continues recording new songs and gives concerts all over the world.
