** RARE ** clips of Celine performing some of the biggest English hits/anthems of all-time!

Remember, she didn't properly learn English until the very late 80s, so everything prior to that was her learning without understanding the lyrics - she was essentially singing them as she'd heard them on record. Just consider that one for one second - she was learning phonetically!

O Canada (1984)
Star Spangled Banner (1984)
Glory Alleluia (1984)
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (1985)
Fame (What A Feeling) (1985)
Saving All My Love For You (1986)
Greatest Love Of All (1987)
Memory (1987)
Summertime (1987)
The Way We Were (1987)
Ave Maria (1987)
Papa Don't Preach (1987)

^ In all of those performances, she was between the ages of 16-19.

Ave Maria is as skilled a vocal as you will ever hear from anyone of that age - the control and grasp of her voice (particularly, what she does from 05:20-06:15 is insane). It's amazing to think she's been in the music industry in some capacity for coming up on 40 years.

Celine is basically an Olympian vocalist. She is a true professional in terms of technique and taking care of herself and her career. She will sound as good as she can be at whatever her age.

Over the years, this has become one of my all-time favourite Celine songs:



Would love for her to perform this with Andrea on UK TV, it's such a classic over here.

Both versions sound amazing, but still Celine and Andrea's version I love more.
Btw, I was so upset to know that Lara won't visit my country on February, she'll visit only Ukraine and Russia. I've really wanted to attend at her concert..

Has there EVER been a better cover of a Whitney song than that? It's insane how good Celine was at the age of 19.
I’d like to think of it as a George Benson cover but I agree either way :P

Maybe you should be glad, her ticket prices are enormous....

I think Lara is worth it.
I have to say, I paid a lot more to see Celine, Madonna, Barbra...
Here in the Netherlands the tickets are not that expensive to see Lara.

Frankly speaking I wouldn't spare my money to see this legendary and one of my favorite singers ever live. Without any doubts she worth it. Anyway, I don't disappoint and I do believe that I'll be attend at her concert one day)

Lol I heard a lot of people complain it is expensive here. The most expensive tickets are €104,49, which IMO is kinda on the high side for an artist like her. Even Adele's most expensive ticket was only €20 more.

^ I guess those people never go to concerts of international stars.
I was amazed it wasn't expensive and I've got good seats.

Still, I agree with Christinamuse, Lara is worth it, even if it was expensive.

I paid 300 euro for Barbra Streisand, but Lara is worth more IMO.

Amazing! It’s her 44th Félix award, out of 90 nominations.

She won her first in 1983, so to see her still winning the competitive categories almost 35 years after her first win - incredible.

So weird, Nelson and Eddy are twins, but they're absolutely different.
And I have to agree that Nelson looks more similar to Rene, but Eddie to Celine. P.S: Happy belated birthay to the boys!)

New/old video performance for Have A Heart song. It'd better if Celine sang the song live.

It's been announced today that she's won another Felix award - for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year. 8-)

Takes her to an incredible 45 Felix awards out of 90 nominations!

On her wikipedia awards page they write 50 Felix Awards but it includes same awards like "Stage Director of the Year" for the director of her tours.

Hopefully next year?
