Celine Dion And Rene Angelil

Celine Dion and Rene Angelil can be termed as the most important power couple in music industry. Dion started her career as an exclusively French singer, but soon realized that only the international music scene can give her the exposure she desired. Immensely talented, Dion was born into a dirt poor family in Charlemagne, Quebec. Her first record was "La Voix du Bon Dieu." She was lucky enough to see her debut album reach the number one slot and this fact alone made her a household name in Quebec.

1983 was an important year in the life of Celine Dion. She received a gold record in France for her single "D'Amour Ou d'Amitie", and has the rare distinction of being the first artist from Canada to receive this honor. After going international success came from different countries of Europe.


She broke in the highly competitive American market with a mid tempo, soft rock ballad, "Where Does My Heart Beat Now", which became a part of American bill board hot 100. Her association with Peabo Bryson resulted in high international success. They recorded the title track of Disney's Beauty and the Beast which was an animated film. Of course, Dion must give credit in chunks to her husband Rene Angelil, it was because of him in the first place that she could take a step in to the entertainment industry. Rene Angelil, first heard Dion's voice when her brother Michael sent one of her demo tapes to him.


Her voice made him convinced that she could make it big on the international scene. So great was his commitment to her career that he mortgaged his home to fund her first album. Well, Dion has repaid him with her love and success! Angelil is of mixed descent (Syrian and Lebanese). At one point of time he also indulged in a music career and formed a pop rock band. He was lucky enough to have some hits like "C'est Fou, Mais c'est Tout." He started on a different career after his band was disbanded. He was good enough to win the Felix Award of Manager of the year. Before marrying Dion Angelil had been married twice and he has children by his earlier wives.

Celine Dion and Rene Angelil was married in 1994. The date of their wedding was 17 December. Prior to their marriage, they were known to each other for decades as it was Angelil who made Dion what she is today. Close professional relationship quickly took a turn for something else, more sublime and intimate. They have remained together through thick and thin and after undergoing fertility treatments, Dion has given birth to a son Rene-Charles Dion Angelil.
