Celine started her professional singing career when she was only 12! By the time she was 21, she released her first single, which topped the charts. She got some help from someone very important to her.
A few years later she had to put her career on hold so she would have time to deal with turmoils which afflicted her private life and changed it forever. Keep on reading to see how she pulled herself together and conquered all the obstacles life threw at her, including her beloved husband’s death.
A star is born
It seems Celine was destined for the world of music, she was even named after a song! According to Dion, she was named after French artist Hugues Aufray’s song called Céline. Despite being born into a family of musicians (she was the youngest of 14 children!) a young Celine stood out from a young age for her talent which was heads and shoulders above the rest.
At the young age of five, she performed for the first time, a performance that would be the beginning of one booming career.
