I'm simply mad 'bout this song. by the way, I sang this song yesterday for almost like 10 times and I couldn't get enough) and also when I worked in Emirates it was one of my most favorite songs along with Immortality, Just Walk Away and If That's What It Takes(Pour Que Tu M'aimes Encore) to perform. Absolutely incredible song for me)

Celine Dion recalls duet with Charice, now Jake Zyrus

They once shared a duet at New York's iconic Madison Square Garden.

And until today Celine Dion remembers the moment she brought out Charice, now known as Jake Zyrus, to sing "Because You Loved Me."

In a report by ABS-CBN News MJ Felipe Friday, Dion joked that she still hasn't gotten over that one time she heard that amazing voice live.

"My jaw is still dislocated 'cause the whole arena was blown away," she said when asked about their performance in 2008.

That was way before Charice came out as a transgender male — a decision that, Dion explained in the same interview, deserves respect.

Saying that finding acceptance for being oneself is difficult nowadays, Dion, referring to Jake Zyrus, urged everyone: "We have to respect that. I wish him the very best."


After the report aired on "TV Patrol," Jake Zyrus took to Twitter to react to Dion's kind words. "I will never forget you, that precious moment and your heart. Love you," he wrote.

Dion, best known as the powerful voice behind the enduring "Titanic" theme, "My Heart Will Go On," and many more hits, will be performing in Manila at Mall of Asia Arena on July 19.

Tickets are priced at P35,380, P32,210, P19,540, P16,370, P7,920 and P2,640, and will be available to the public on January 18.

Celine is just Queen of Positivity and Love. I always wondered though how she is business-wise, since she is so successful. Does she just know what she wants and not budge and deflect people with similar grace, or did she rely on Rene to do all the hard showbiz bargaining...now that Rene is gone, she seems to still be super successful and canny...

To Love You More is such a stunning song. Really showcases her vocals.

Wow! Never heard about this before. I keep looking for new Charice songs now and then.
Now I know why there hasn't been new songs by Charice.
Her/his voice hasn't changed though.

Why do you think her voice hasn't changed. It has changed under the influence of hormone pills, see/hear the difference. and I really love his duet with herself)
btw: I was a bit surprised 'bout this news, but this is her choice, if she feels herself harmony with her body then it was a right decision.

Adele sent out a tweet about seeing Céline Dion live in Las Vegas.
Hope it will come to a duet for the new album.

Asian Tour Announcement - Press Conference



During her press conference, a Filipino journalist, when citing her as one of the most successful, inspirational and influential female artists in Asia, asked her who influenced her (the question is asked at around 12:00). She first cited her brothers & sisters - she cites growing up with the music of the Doobie Brothers, Creedence Clearwater, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Frank Sinatra. She goes on to cite Labrinth, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga & Sia as some of today's amazing performers.

She goes on to cite Annie Lennox's Diva album as being hugely important to her - she says she can recall the album from A-Z and then goes on to recall some of Annie's lyrics and states she loves her music very much.

She finally states Whitney Houston as being a big influence - she cites the fact they started at the same time, she says Whitney "had it all". She said that she sang Whitney's songs because she didn't have enough of her own songs in English at that time (21:00).

The whole press conference was just wonderful.

To Love You More is one of her finest songs ever. It's a masterpiece in both music and vocal performance. It was her big hit in Asia and a moderate hit in the US, which didn't do its job making LTAL stay in the Top 10. I didn't know it is one of her best known songs in Canada.

What I've always found strange is the fact that the track is included in every edition of All The Way around the world. We know it wasn't a hit in Europe (first included as a B side of some singles of FIY and them as an inedit track of Live A Paris which sold well in Europe but not as her mainstream English language albums at the time). It deserved to be an album track of either FIY or LTAL and be released as a proper single.

I hope Celine includes I Love You and I Love You Goodbye in the setlist. I heard some fans saying those are some of her biggest hits in South East Asia.

There are many gaps between dates. I wonder where she will include cities like Osaka and other Japanese cities. What about Malaysa? TC tour had a stop there. I would like her to add some cities in China, India and South Korea.

I don’t know what to say, other than I’m truly sorry for having to cancel tonight’s show and the two shows from last week. Cancelling a show is the hardest thing I have to do, especially when I know that so many people have travelled far to see me in Las Vegas. This decision is not made lightly. When I’m not well, I always try to push through and I do everything I can to do my show. I really struggled to finish last night’s show and it took everything out of me. My doctor advised that I absolutely cannot perform tonight.

I know that I’m disappointing you, the people who support me the most and it hurts me beyond words.

I hope that you can forgive me.

Céline xx…

Well that's unusual - she clearly understands the impact of her cancellations. Beautiful words, and really genuine.

Her song from Beauty and the Beast has been shortlisted for the Oscars, made the top 70 songs.

See if it can make the final round and be nominated.

In fairness, I’m surprised she doesn’t catch more colds, flu n bugs what with still having young kids.
