Trivia / CÚline Dion

  • Approval of God: Actually invited Ana Gasteyer, who did a parody of Celine on Saturday Night Live, to appear on one of her stage shows in New York.
    • She invited another impersonator, Véronic DiCaire, when promoting her French album Sans Attendre in a TV programme.
  • Breakthrough Hit: "Where Does My Heart Beat Now".
  • Dye Hard: A natural brunette, she has bleached her hair blonde from time to time, most notably during the One Heart era.
  • In Memoriam:
    • Vole (later translated to English Fly) was dedicated to her niece Karine, who died from cystic fibrosis.
    • Trois heures vingt (Twenty minutes past three), which is stated to be René Angélil's favorite song, was in a way repurposed as an In Memoriam song for him. So this song was played during his funeral, the ceremony itself was started at 3:20 p.m., her video Encore Un Soir (One more night) shows a clock at 3:20, a remastered Trois Heures Vingt is included in her Encore Un Soir album (complete with a fresh lyrics video), and Céline sang that song in some her concerts after René's death.
  • Singing Against Type: She is so well known for singing ballads (well, one ballad in particular) that it's a strange, but welcome, change when she does something up-tempo. "That's the Way it Is" and "I'm Alive" from the Stuart Little soundtrack were both good examples.
  • What Could Have Been: Celine Dion was meant to sing "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing", for the soundtrack to Armageddon before it become a number one for Aerosmith.
