"Celine is more than just the story of a singer. It is the story of a strong and passionate woman who is devoted to her family, and to her manager and husband, Rene. It is also the story of what can be accomplished when you believe in yourself." "Author Georges-Hebert Germain traveled with Celine and her entourage for more than one year, and has written this inspiring portrait of one of the world's best-loved vocal artists." "Born in Charlemagne, Quebec, in 1968, the youngest of fourteen children, Celine Dion began her rise to the top at a young age, recording her first album when she was just 13. Since then she has gone on to become the world's most popular singer, and has compiled an impressive list of accomplishments along the way." "Celine has won numerous Junos, Grammys and World Music Awards, and has worked with such legends as Barbra Streisand, David Foster, Luciano Pavarotti and Sir George Martin. She enchanted a global audience with her performance of "The Power of the Dream" during the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Olympics, and has made appearances on Oprah, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman. In the past year, her album Let's Talk About Love has sold more than 25 million copies, while the song "My Heart Will Go On" from the motion picture Titanic is now the most frequently heard single in the history of American radio." "But behind the music, the success and the fame lies a woman whose true greatness has, until now, only been known to the people around her. This is her story. Book jacket."--Jacket.
