Celine Dion Ready to Wow Them Worldwide

Dec 13, 2007
What happens in Vegas doesn't necessarily stay in Vegas. Sometimes it goes to many other places afterwards.

This is the case with Celine Dion. She ends her close to five-year run in Vegas on December 15, 2007, to explore new horizons once again, beyond the Nevada desert. This talented singer from Canada is set to launch a forty-five city North American tour in August 2008. She will take her career in a new direction, promoting her new CD along the way.

The Woman in Me is her latest release and it hit the stores in November. The album's approach returns to some rock-oriented influences of her earlier years and gives her a chance to broaden her repertoire again. She will be on the move beyond North America, as she plans to visit Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe. It seems seeing the world is the logical thing to do after living in a desert for years.

Recently, Celine Dion, 39, received a major entertainment award in Monaco. It recognized her contribution to music and honored her for her overall career. Because of her artistic and commercial success, the singer received the ultimate honor at the World Music Awards in the Mediterranean principality. She accepted the Legend Award from Prince Albert II in Monte Carlo on November 4.

Celine's Las Vegas show was, and is for a little while longer, an extravagant production. When it closes in December, it will have played to nearly 2.5 million fans in Caesar's Palace. The original contract for her show, A New Day, was for 100 million dollars and 50% of the profit for three years of performances (subsequently extended). This is quite an accomplishment for the girl from Charlemagne, Quebec who grew up in poverty. She is the youngest of fourteen children born into the family.

The path to Vegas resulted because of her incredible voice and its great power. It can soar to great heights on songs structured for intense emotional impact. It can also reveal its subtle beauty when performing quiet ballads. She has secured for herself, over the years, an international following. She has also maintained her French-speaking audience. Her CD, D'elles, debuted at the top of the Canadian charts upon its May 2007 release.

Celine Dion's first album came out in 1981 and produced instant success for her. It made her a star in Quebec. In the early 1990s, she gained international fame for her duet with Peabo Bryson on the title track to the movie Beauty and the Beast. This song warmed filmgoer's hearts and won an Academy Award for Best Song.

As well, forever etched in the minds of moviegoers is the theme song she sang from the 1997 film Titanic. My Heart Will Go On was a worldwide chart-topper that still tugs at the heartstrings whenever heard.

From humble beginnings, Celine Dion has seen her career grow in extraordinary ways. Her vocal talents have made it possible for her to perform in state-of-the art venues and for unique audiences. She had the honor of performing at the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996.

How does a singer achieve superstar status as Celine Dion has? Selling over 200 million records worldwide is one way. That's how many she has sold to date in her career; and the number will certainly grow as her career enters a new phase.

Celine Dion's win at the World Music Awards in Monaco earlier this month is not her first honor from this group. She already has an award from WMA for being the world's best-selling female artist of all-time.

As new challenges lie ahead, Celine Dion is ready to see the world again. Maybe the past years in Las Vegas have made her a bit stir crazy. Maybe it's time to hit the open road and spread the gift of her voice city to city, one night at a time. From what's on the horizon, according to her 2008 itinerary, it seems that's exactly what she has planned.

Her fans are waiting.
