Céline Marie Claudette Dion (born March 30, 1968) is a Canadian Grammy, Juno, and Oscar award-winning pop singer and occasional songwriter and actress. Dion became an adolescent star in Francophone Canada after her manager and future husband, René Angélil, mortgaged his home in order to finance her career. She also gained recognition in parts of Europe and Asia by winning both the 1982 Yamaha World Song Festival and the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, and established a foothold in the Anglophone music market with the release of her first English album, Unison (1990) published by Sony Records.
Dion's music has been influenced by various genres, ranging from pop and rock, to gospel and classical, and she is noted for her technically skilled and powerful vocals. She released a slew of chart-topping English and French records including ""I'm Your Angel"" and ""My Heart Will Go On"", before announcing a temporary break from entertainment in 1999. In 2002, Dion returned to the music scene with the release of A New Day Has Come, and in 2004, she received the Chopard Diamond from the World Music Awards show for becoming the best-selling female artist of all time. Dion currently performs nightly in her show, A New Day...Live in Las Vegas, at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, under a contract that extends to 2007.
