Celine Dion: A ‘Katie’ Exclusive!

A very personal one-on-one with the music icon.

Katie traveled to Las Vegas to spend the entire day with Celine Dion at the Palms recording studio. The music icon gave Katie unlimited access for an entire day, catching up on her music, her family and some of the most important people in her life – her fans.

“I have decided a long time ago that I wanted to be an open book.” -Celine Dion

Celine Dion wasn’t dubbed “Queen Celine” for nothing. She has sold more than 200 million records worldwide and she’s been the reigning voice on the Vegas strip for ten years.

“In life if you don’t take chances, you’ll never know.” -Celine Dion

Celine Dion wouldn’t be the mega star she is today without the life-long dedication of her manager and husband René Angélil. Katie spoke to the couple about life, love, cancer and, of course, their three beautiful children.

“We’re normal people as well, we have our struggle.” -Celine Dion

Managing her career since the age of 12, Celine’s husband not only mortgaged his home for her, he also helped keep her grounded every step of the way.

“He didn’t sell it very well.” -Celine Dion

Celine Dion’s upcoming CD “Water and a Flame” is one of the most anticipated albums this year. Katie sat in during one of Celine’s recording sessions at the Palms recording studio for an exclusive listen to the title track and to find out who else is performing on the album.

“I love Adele.” -Celine Dion

As if Celine Dion’s talent isn’t enough, she’s busy discovering other up-and-coming singers with her husband René. And if Celine Dion says you must hear the incredible voice of one of their new artists, you listen! Véronic DiCaire is one of those talents and she stops by the studio for her first American interview.

“She’s my idol and to work with her and René it’s amazing.” -Véronic
