Celine Dion News
Get all the latest news and pictures from Celine Dion. The Canadian singer is famous for hits such as My Heart Will Go On from the Titanic soundtrack, Because You Loved Me and Think Twice. After winning several Grammy Awards and breaking numerous music industry records, the singer now has a Las Vegas residency at Ceasars Palace where she regularly performs many of her greatest hits.
The French speaking performer married Rene Angelil in 1994 and had three children together. Her husband sadly died in 2016 from a long battle with cancer in the same month that her brother also died.
Hailing from the small town of Charlemagne, Québec, Céline Dion has become one of the all-time greatest singers. Céline was born in 1968, the youngest of 14 children. Early in childhood, she sang with her siblings in a small club owned by her parents. From these early experiences, Céline gained the know-how to performing live. At the age of 12, Dion composed a song in her native French and sent it to a record company, where it garnered the attention of René Angélil, a respected manager. Angélil believed in Céline so much that he actually mortgaged his house in order to finance her debut album. Already very popular and successful internationally, Céline burst onto the U.S. stage when she recorded the theme song to Disney’s hit Beauty and the Beast (1991). The song garnered a Grammy and an Oscar, and from this point Céline has brought forth hit after hit. Her ‘Falling Into You’ album, released in 1996, became the best-selling album of that year, selling more than 25 million copies worldwide. In 1999, Dion took a hiatus in order to begin a family. She returned to the spotlight in 2002, releasing yet another hit album. Starting in 2003, Céline began a three-year commitment to perform in an arena built for her in Las Vegas.

CANCELED SHOW DUE TO VIRUS
Celine Dion had to cancel her Vegas concert Saturday because, like many Americans right now, she’s sick at home battling a nasty virus.
We’re told the virus was serious enough to warrant a visit from the doctor. She was unable to sing clearly Saturday and was faced with no alternative, so she pulled the plug on the show and has been resting and on medication ever since.
Celine’s generally known for toughing it through performances. She doesn’t like canceling because so many people fly from out of town to see her perform.
There was a rumor Celine got hurt Friday night when a drunk fan got onstage and hugged her, but we’re told that’s not true.

Celine Dion’s Florida home actually sold for $28M
Editor’s Note: This post was originally published in April 2017 and has been updated with the most recent information.
Celine Dion found a buyer for her oceanfront Florida mansion equipped with a water park in the backyard but the official sale price wasn’t anything close to the $38.5 million that was initially reported.
After first hitting the market for a whopping $72 million in August 2013, the 20,000-square-foot estate in Jupiter Island actually sold for $28 million, per the Palm Beach Daily News, which was less than half of the original ask from nearly four years ago.
The mammoth Palm Beach County property sits on over five acres and was built in 2010 by Dion and her husband, René Angélil, who passed away last year.
The Bahamian-inspired home has 13 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a guest house, golf simulator, and over 400 feet of ocean frontage, but its most interesting feature has to be the water park, which entails a lazy river, water cannons, slides, and a tree house.
The report also states the new buyer, who was not disclosed, will utilize the property as “a vacation home” because of course.
