Celine Dion

Celine Dion

Entertainer

 

Celine Dion is one of the most immediately recognized, widely respected and successful performers in pop music history, having sold more than 200 million albums around the world. In March 2003, Celine began “A New Day…” at The Colosseum. Due to the unprecedented sold-out success of the show, the original three-year engagement was quickly extended an additional two years. On March 15, 2011, Dion returned to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace to begin her second three-year residency.

Born in Charlemagne, a small town 30 miles east of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Dion first began to receive recognition for her talent in 1982, winning the Gold Medal at the Yamaha World Song Festival in Tokyo, along with the coveted Musician's Award for Top Performer. During her spectacular career, Dion has been honored with more than 1,000 awards, including five Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 20 Juno Awards (Canada) and 40 Felix Awards (Quebec). Her recordings also have won two Academy Awards.​
