I don't recall ever seeing this - OMG, her voice!! :o :o

Love Voices That Care - one of my favourite "unknown" songs she's part of.
I just heard this yesterday. I have a playlist of about 4500 singles/hits from the 80s and 90s that I play on shuffle quite a bit. This just happened to come up. It's quite the group of voices, and not a terrible song. Celine stands out.

Best American Music Awards Performances No. 10: Celine Dion Pays Tribute to Paris Attack Victims at the 2015 AMAs

In honor of the 2017 American Music Awards, Billboard is counting down the best performances from the awards show’s history. Here is No. 10.

The world was still reeling from the terrorist attacks that had taken the lives of 130 people across six different target locations throughout Paris. But these attacks hit closer to home for the American music industry as 89 lives were lost in a mass shooting at Le Bataclan during a show by American rockers Eagles of Death Metal.

So, it was only fitting for Celine Dion, the foremost French-language chanteuse in America, to take on the responsibility of honoring the lives lost with a musical tribute at the 2015 American Music Awards. The Quebecois native -- who made her name as a teen star in the French-speaking world -- sang Edith Piaf’s “Hymne à L'Amour” in French.

Just as the Eiffel Tower went dark to mourn Paris, so too did the stage of the AMAs 10 days after the Nov. 13 tragedy. The minimalist stage was characterized by black outfits and low lighting as images of Parisian landmarks were projected on a big screen.

Dion’s powerhouse voice deviated from Piaf’s precise vibrato while easing into the soaring vocal runs demanded of the song. Shots of tear-streaked faces in the crowd were interwoven into the emotionally charged production, aided by an orchestra. There were parts where the veteran songstress went off-key, but that contributed to the emotional intensity of the moment.

However, the superstar’s presence didn’t distract from the gravity of the moment -- at one point, Dion turned back at the screen to take in the images of Paris along with the audience. Then she closed out the performance with a sustained note filled with the kind of intensity that was only appropriate for the evening.

the Hymne à l’amour performance has to be the most out of tune of her career, but I love how emotional it was, and how stoic she came across. that dress was gorgeous, as well.

10 years of Taking Chances!

Image

Today, we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Taking Chances!

After having had a 2 year gap from music (3 years if you discount Miracle, which was a concept album), Celine returned with a BANG in 2007 with Taking Chances - an album touted as her most experimental anglophone release yet! The album was a success, selling more than 3.5 million copies worldwide and reaching the top 10 in 24 countries! The accompanying world tour, her first since 1999, was a resounding success; she would play to 2.5 million people and she would gross $279.2 million - a sum of money that at that point was the 2nd highest of any solo artist of all-time.
SLAYline really delivered with Taking Chances - I like it so much more in retrospect than I did at the time, I think it's aged wonderfully.

Best American Music Awards Performances No. 10: Celine Dion Pays Tribute to Paris Attack Victims at the 2015 AMAs

Celine Dion performs onstage during the 2015 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Nov. 22, 2015 in Los Angeles.

In honor of the 2017 American Music Awards, Billboard is counting down the best performances from the awards show’s history. Here is No. 10.

Céline made a surprise appearance at OMNIA club last night and performed MHWGO remix with Steve Aoki. The event was to raise money for shooting victims of Las Vegas massacre.

I like it too, she looks stunning. But I saw a video and she can't move like she does with the blue dress. I'm not sure if she will keep it.
