Celine Dion – Singer Amazed Us With Her Powerful Voice And Number Of Hits She Made
Career And Life Of Celine Dion
Celine Dion net worth is about $800 million. She is one of most popular singers in the world. She first struck us with her incredible performance of hit she sang for blockbuster Titanic, song called”My Heart Will Go On”. This hit earned her a Grammy Award, but this was just the beginning of her worldwide successful career. She lined dozen of hits that were first on charts, sold millions of copies of her successful albums, and eventually sang in Las Vegas for dozen million dollars annualy-and she performed there for about 5 years.
Celine Dion is interesting for several reasons, besides her angelic voice. She sings-and issues successful albums-both in English and French- because French is her native language, as she grew up in Quebec in Canada. She worked hard to become popular worldwide, and then made incredible decision-she announced that she will make a break in her career that was at its peak, because she wants to start a family with her longtime husband (who is 25 years her senior). She first had a son, and then had twins, and mean while Celine Dion husband got seriously ill (he had brain tumor), so she devoted her time to family, totally neglecting career.
However, once she decided that she is ready to go back, she signed the deal to sing in Las Vegas, and that proved to be another successful career move. It seems that Celine turns everything into gold, at any time and any place, and Celine Dion children are definitely very proud of their super successful mom.
How Did Celine Dion Earn So Much?
Obviously, majority of Celine Dion net worth came from her albums and live performances. Let’s again mention Las Vegas deal that brought her stunning $350 million through period of five years. There are only few artists who have managed to earn this much with their live performances over the course of their career. Maybe we could add Elton John and Michael Jackson into this circle with Celine Dion.
Along with singing, Celine Dion has done some advertising-she signed a lucrative endorsement deal with Air Canada. Besides this promotional deal, Celine has signed business deal with Coty Inc. to create perfumes together. So far, she has created several perfumes, that all sold very well, and as some statistic show, Celine Dion Perfumes were among the best selling celebrity fragrances in 2008 in the United States, and grossed worldwide more than $27 millions. So, obviously, perfume business also adds some to huge net worth of Celine Dion. And let’s not forget Celine Dion restaurant chain Nickel. Besides this, Celine Dion and her husband own artist management company in Canada.
Celine Dion and her family live in Las Vegas these days.
