    A teeny bit of me also did, but then it is Céline - she's not known for her surprises.

    She's going to smash Vegas when she goes back though - I am both frustrated and excited for her $$$.

    She's already the highest-grossing female artist of ALL-TIME and she needs to push that $$$ up as Taylor Swift is coming for her.

    I really want her to get to $2 billion in the next few years from tours/residencies.

Yet in my mind, Mariah was an instant equal to Whitney, while Celine wasn't. I think perhaps it was due to Mariah's first 5 songs all reaching US#1, while Celine didn't have the early big chart #1s, so in my teenage mind, she was "a lesser". Also, Mariah and Whitney's richer RnB voices sounded fatter than Celine's steely ice vocals (which are equally as brilliant - but just not what I wanted to hear back then). Plus Celine didn't do the extreme vocal pyrotechnics of the other two.

    So even though they were introduced to the English market at the same year, it always seemed like Celine was trailing. It also didn't help that I remember a Rick Dees Top 40 countdown where she gave an interview or something and said she couldn't believe WDMHBN hadn't been snapped up by Whitney or Mariah, so she was very glad to record the song on her own album. That reinforced in my mind that she was singing the rejects from Nippy and Meemz...

    For some reason, it was only during the Colour of My Love that she started beginning to register to my mind as a Ultra-prime vocalist and then during Falling Into You, when she hit lots of G5s (I think - or at least started singing lots of higher notes and doing more runs) that she became top tier in my mind. Then LTAL cemented her in my mind as a member of the Vocal Trinity.
    Thank you for your post. I've always found interesting to lean more about how and when Celine really started to connect with the American audience. I'm from Québec, so obviously, Céline has always been around. Witney was and is still very popular and has always been seen as the one that paved the way for Celine (and all the 90s divas) in the USA and even worldwide. Mariah, for some reason, had hit singles but I think never really connected with the Canadian market at the same level as the American's.

    Céline and René explained many times how it hard it has been to actually penetrate the American's market (a market that is not really known to be open to non-anglophone). They really took the baby-step approach. In my mind, Beauty in the Beast put her on the map but it's really The Power of Love that really helped her becoming a household name and ultimately, Falling Into You put her in a league on her own.

    Her career is so fascinating because she had some many breakthrough moments depending on the market (D'eux for the French market, Think Twice for the UK, To Love You More for Japan). This anti-overnight success really played out in her favor.

    RIP. He truly created a timeless masterpiece. And I'm happy that this masterpiece had a huge success thanks to Celine's magical voice. (P.S: I've just listened to Pandora's Box version and it sounds absolutely horrible to me)

    Only a week after Celine released the making of It's All Coming Back To Me Now.

It was the first time I really focused on Celine singing live (or dubbed live...whatever) - I had seen her sing live on TV before of course, but always had a prejudice that she was just a Whitney/Mariah wannabe, so it was impossible for her to impress me beyond being a "good singer but nothing REALLY special". But I listened to this live version and her little runs and adlibs and variations really wowed me. Also, the band was phenomenal on this song. After this, I really started taking note of Celine as a real musician and not "just" a vanilla singer.
    Where Does My Heart Beat Now was added on some versions of the "celine dion" album. I don't know to which cd-single it was added as a bonus track. When did you first hear Celine Dion?
    Because she was around longer than Mariah and Whitney. As for her English work, she started in the same year as Mariah. So she couldn't have been a Whitney/Mariah wannabe...

    Probably the best live of this song. This song is like a second breath to me
    P.S: I love her look here. This dress looks so good on her.

    And I've just recently noticed this remix amateur video(they call it demo version, well, ok) and btw, I really love it. It sounds faster and the key is much higher, but it sounds really nice.
    Yep that "demo" is better than 2002 album version.
    Btw- That long note in 03:27 is "extended" just with audio editing, real version of that part is in 2003 version.

    Céline Dion - Declaration Of Love (Live in Memphis - 1997)

    I love, love, love her so much - performances like this are so underrated and reinforce that she is so much more than the ballads would have your average casual fan think. Her versatility is actually quite remarkable, I'm so thankful we have so many of these old performances available to refer back to.

    Also have to say that the ANDHC is her best album cover ever. It looks so fresh and cool, and Celine looks so young!

    RIFOY should have been a single. Probably in her top 3 album tracks for me. A New Day had so much potential in singles.

    Singles run imo

    ANDHC
    Im Alive
    I Surrender
    RIFOY
    and maybe Sorry For Love or something else.
