There is no other celebrity whom I admire and adore more than Celine Dion. I love her voice, her music and who she is as as a person. She radiates an inner beauty and a genuineness that seems so rare in the entertainment industry.

Unlike many other superstars, you never hear of her behaving like a mean diva or getting drunk and flashing her underwear (or lack thereof). She is consistently awesome towards her fans, her staff and her family. And, she sounds as amazing live as she does on her recorded tracks.

The first time Celine (and her magnificent voice) came to my attention was in 1992 (I was about 11 or 12 years old),  when I saw the Beauty and the Beast music video – she was singing alongside Peabo Bryson. I instantly became a die-hard Celine fan. I have many of her CDs and also two DVDs which I have watched countless times – each time I enjoy it as much as I did the first time. I highly recommend Celine Dion: A New Day – Live in Las Vegas. It is a two-DVD set including Celine Dion’s show at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace and three exclusive documentaries.
