Who is Celine Dion?
Celine Dion was born on March 30, 1968, in Charlemagne, Québec, a little town 50 kilometers from Montréal. She was the 14th child of Thérèse Tanguay and Adhémar Dion. The Dion family were never boastful, instead they were so humble, but never lacked for love.
Dion emerged as a teen star in her home country with a series of French-language albums during the 1980s. She first gained international recognition by winning both the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festival and the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, where she represented Switzerland. After learning to speak English, she signed on to Epic Records in the United States. In 1990, Dion released her debut English-language album, Unison, establishing herself as a viable pop artist in North America and other English-speaking areas of the world. Her recordings since have been mainly in English and French although she has also sung in Spanish, Italian, German, Latin, Japanese, and Chinese.
Dion is regarded as one of pop music’s most influential and successful vocalists. She has won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. Throughout her four-decade-long career, Dion has been referred to as the “Priestess of Pop” and has received two Honorary Doctorates in Music degree from Berklee College of Music and Université Laval. Billboard named her the “Queen of Adult Contemporary” for having the most number-one songs on the radio format for a female artist.

Céline Dion has revealed that she is living with a rare neurological disorder called stiff person syndrome (SPS) in an emotional video posted to her Instagram account on 8 December. “I’ve always been an open book and I wasn’t ready to say anything before, but I’m ready now,” the 54-year-old singer said. “I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges . We now know [SPS] is what’s been causing all of the spasms that I’ve been having.”
“I’m working hard with my sports medicine therapist every day to build back my strength and my ability to perform again,” she said. “But I have to admit it’s been a struggle.”
Thanking her fans for their support, she became emotional. “All I know is singing” Celine Dion said.
Dion had been scheduled for a European tour through July of 2023 – going from the Czech Republic, Cyprus, London, Italy and more. Those dates, however, have been canceled. She now plans on doing a fewer number of shows in the spring of 2024, with the dates and locations available on her website.
“Take care of yourselves, be well,” she said in an emotional farewell in the video. “I love you guys so much. And I really hope I can see you again real soon.”
