CANADIAN DIVA SELIN DION
The vocal abilities of this singer span five octaves. With her unique voice, she has long fascinated music lovers around the world. And now she is rightly called one of the most influential artists of our time. Songs performed by Celine Dion can penetrate the deepest nooks of the soul, making you think about the main thing. But this was not always the case, and at first no one believed in the talent of the 12-year-old girl. No one … except producer Rene Angelil. When he first heard her voice, he even shed a tear and realized that such a gift only needs to be developed, this precious diamond must be cut to become a real diamond in the world of music.
The youngest of 14
Celine Dion was the youngest child in a large Canadian family. It would seem that the girl should have been glad at least that she was able to reach with her small hands to her favorite cheese sandwiches remaining from older children, not to mention the piano. However, parents adored their 14 children, singer Celine Dion none of them felt a lack of attention and care. In addition, a cult of music reigned in the family, so creativity was instilled in offspring from the cradle. Celine Dion was born on March 30, 1968 in a village near Montreal. Her mother Teresa named her daughter in honor of the musical composition that she had been listening to throughout her pregnancy. His father played the accordion well, and his mother had a beautiful voice. This prompted them to organize a family ensemble, which earned performances at village weddings. Over time, Celine’s parents acquired a small restaurant, which became the first stage for their youngest daughter. A five-year-old girl happily performed in front of visitors to the accompaniment of a violin and accordion.
Not a dream at all
Already at the age of 12, Dion herself composed the song, and her mother and brother helped her to record a demo tape. In the album of one of the popular performers, mother found the address of producer Rene Angelil and sent him a cassette. The composition was called “It was only a dream.” The producer did not believe that such a voice could be a reality; singer Celine Dionved has been working in show business for several years. He wanted to see this girl and hear her singing alive. In 1980, Celine and his mother appeared on the threshold of his office. “In five years, I will make a star out of your daughter,” Rene told the elder Dion. From this began the ascent of Celine to the top of the musical world.
The producer immediately warned her parents that Celine needed to move to Montreal in order to achieve something worthwhile. Father Hadamard initially objected to this turn of events. But which parent does not want a better future for his child ?! Moreover, Teresa convinced her husband that Rene Angelica could be entrusted to their daughter. Although the financial situation of the producer was not the most enviable. Recording companies were in no hurry to invest in the promotion of the teenager, and the producer had to lay down his house in order to finance the recording of her album. The prospect of being left without a roof over his head did not please his wife, but it was impossible to stop Renee.

Perhaps this is why novice singer Celine Dionpevice did not have to experience the difficulties of adolescence, which turned her head and ruined her career with more than one rising star.

Both the audience and critics immediately noticed her, Dion’s talent was appreciated – she received music awards and awards, among which was the gold medal of the international festival in Tokyo. Hard-working and purposeful Celine records nine francophone albums in just five years. And in 1983, she became the first representative of Canada, who received a “golden single” in France.

Now this is not a singing schoolgirl, but a brilliant mystery girl, a flexible and slender beauty, surprising her friends with British pronunciation.
In 1988, Celine Dion tries his hand at the international Eurovision Song Contest … and wins (even with a margin of one vote only). This event in the music world was also remembered by the public for the fact that in Dublin, where the competition was held, Rene Angelil kissed Celine for the first time in public. A couple of years earlier in Canada, they had already whispered about their relationship, but lovers did not dare to openly declare them. Firstly, Rene was still officially married, and secondly, this could not have the best effect on the reputation of the young singer, because Rene was 26 years older than her.
