As a fellow French-Canadian artist, I’ve followed Celine Dion’s career with interest almost since its debut. In my early beginnings as a studio sound engineer I had the chance to work with Celine. I can tell you she’s one of the most hard working singer I’ve met. I always compared her to the Olympic athlete gymnast, Nadia Comaneci, as she was focused and highly dedicated to her work. Coming from a small town close to Montreal, Celine had success in Quebec early on and in the ‘80s, you couldn’t turn on the radio or TV without coming across Celine Dion. This intensified further after her winning the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest – just 20 years old – with her entry “Ne partez pas sans moi” for Switzerland. Everyone in Quebec knew that song and was proud that a local singer had won!
