She was born Celine Marie Claudette Dion in Charlemagne, Quebec, Canada in 1968. While her family was reported to have been affected by poverty in the early years, Dion claimed that it was a happy home. She first sang to an audience when she was just 5 years old at the wedding of her brother Michel. She would soon perform in the small bar owned by the parents. She later claimed that, despite having lost her adolescence, she had always dream of becoming a singer.
Helped by her mother and brother, Celine would compose her first song at the age of 12. The song, “It was only a dream” was sent by her brother to the music manager Rene Angelil. In 1981, Angelil would take a mortgage loan in order to help Dion release her first album The Voice of the Good God. Her debut album transformed her into a local star.
She would also win the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song festival in Japan. The next albums were successful in Canada as well as in Europe. However, she decided to improve her English in order to reach a wider audience, and that is why she went to the Ecole Berlitz in 1989. During the Incognito tour which took place in the same year, she managed to injure her voice.
The specialized doctor who consulted her told her that she would either have to undergo surgery, or not use her voice for three weeks. She chose the latter variant.
Celine Dion’s first English album was Unison which was released in 1990. Two other albums followed, with the 1993 album The Color of My Love being used as an opportunity to declare her love for her manager and future-husband Rene Angelil.
During the late 90s and early 00s, Celine released many albums which were sold in the millions worldwide. She took a break in 2002 to tend for her husband and her newborn sons only to return to the music industry stronger than ever.
Celine Dion is regarded as one of the most influential voices in the pop music history, with many young artists citing her as an inspiration.
