Quote by: Celine Dion
Celine Dion was born in Quebec, Canada on March 30, 1968 in a large and poor French family. She was the youngest of 14 children in a small house. Her father was a butcher and her mother was a housewife. From early childhood, Celine Dion showed interest in music as her family was also fond of music. She began singing in her family gatherings and in the piano-bar that her parents owned for livelihood. In the love of music and singing, she forgot that she belonged to a poor family and her childhood was spent happily, though in poverty. She used to sing and made public appearances at her parents' bar with her siblings. When she was 12 years old, she created a demo tape with her mother and brother. It was a French song Ce n'était qu'un rêve which means It Was Only A Dream in English, and sent it to the Music Producer Rene Angelil who was very impressed by the Celine Dion's voice and her talent. He invited Celine Dion for audition in Quebec and eventually started working on Celine Dion's first French album La voix du bon Dieu which released in November 1981. The album was a success in Quebec and its songs managed to reach within top 20 spots on Music Charts. This album marked the start of the music career of a legendary artist and Pop Star.
