Almost at the same time Celine's favourite parfum (see below) was launched also her French album "On Ne Change Pas" was released.
It will probably be her last recorded album - until the end of 2006 Celine Dion (born: 1968) will be performing in Las Vegas. She has a wage of 95 million US Dollars and the show is presented at the colosseum at Caesar's Palace (when she has her day off Elton John will be replacing her).
Celine's Las Vegas contract will extend through 2007 and it is said that pop diva Cher will take over together with lots of music legends like Sir Elton John.
Inspired by the birth of her son Rene-Charles Celine released her last CD "Miracle" in 2004. The theme - babies and motherhood. Miracle is a collaboration between Celine and Anne Geddes that inspires the bond of love between a mother and her baby. A booklet with photographs is included.

Celine is the youngest of 14 children. At the age of five she already has been singing for her sisters and brothers and dreamed about being a big star.
She made it: She sold more than 50 million CD's and became one of the most successful pop singers ever.
Her international breakthrough came when she recorded the title track for "The beauty and the beast" in 1992 and she became an Oscar nominee. She also was a Grammy winner with her legendary title track "My heart will go on" for "The Titanic" in 1997 (leading role Leonardo Dicaprio). With "A new day has come," released in 2002, the Canadian pop singer ended her two-year break from the music world.

She is married to her music manager René Angélil (64) who discovered her in 1980. In 2001 she gave birth to their son René-Charles. More about Celine in her biography "For keeps" (photo right).
Celine is an active supporter of charity organizations worldwide and has donated proceeds from selected performances. She donated the people at the hurricane-ravaged New Orleans money. She also donated almost 10 million US Dollars from her Las Vegas show for children in need together with Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf.
