Celine Dion

This episode traces legendary contemporary pop vocalist Celine Dion’s dramatic life story from modest childhood as the baby of a large French-Canadian family where her prodigious singing talents were first discovered performing in local piano bars around her rural Quebec hometown. We follow young Celine’s starmaking trajectory after family friend-turned-manager René Angélil first hears her talent at just age 12, later mortgaging his home to finance her meteoric rise to Francophone stardom on early records. Her mature voice stuns global audiences leading to decades filling arenas worldwide, highlighted by her iconic Titanic movie theme cementing unmatched superstardom. After settling into a Las Vegas residency, she tragically loses husband René to cancer while battling her own rare neurological condition forcing a performing hiatus. Despite adversity and uncertainty plaguing a historic 40-year career boasting over 200 million albums sold, Celine remains driven to overcome health struggles and honor her late husband’s legacy through future song. Her unlikely small-town origins-to-worldwide-fame story exemplifies how humble beginnings cannot restrain extraordinary talent fueled by resilience.
