She finally released her first English-language record, 'Unison', in 1990 and found international fame with her duet performance of the title track to the 1991 Disney animation 'Beauty and the Beast', which featured on her self-titled debut album released the following year. Her emotional voice, allied to an elegant soft-rock style, conquered the international pop market, scoring hits with 'The Power of Love' and 'My Heart Will Go On', the theme from the movie 'Titanic' (1997) which became one of the bestselling singles of all time. It also won Dion the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Original Song and two Grammy Awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Record of the Year.
In 2000, Dion announced that she was taking a step back from her career to spend time with her now husband Angélil who had been diagnosed with cancer. She returned to the studio after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in America, performing 'God Bless America' live on TV. An album of new material came out in 2002 titled 'A New Day Has Come' and focused on her experiences of being a mother. Following her record-breaking 'A New Day...' Las Vegas residency and the 'Taking Chances' world tour, in 2009 she was named the 20th bestselling recording artist of the decade selling an estimated 17 million records since 2000.
At the start of 2016, Dion lost both her brother and her husband to cancer and cancelled her upcoming shows at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas where she was again in residency. She returned later to a sold-out theatre and announced work on a brand new album, 'Encore Un Soir'. Following the end of her residency at Caesars Palace, in 2019 she released the album 'Courage' and announced plans to embark on a world tour in support of the record.

Falling Into You finally established Celine Dion as a superstar in America, so its sequel, Let's Talk About Love, was designed to consolidate her position as a newly minted star. The album was constructed as a blockbuster, featuring Dion's trademark melodramatic ballads, some carefully tailored dance-pop, a bevy of duets with the likes of Barbra Streisand and the Bee Gees, and production and songs from adult contemporary gurus David Foster, Jim Steinman, and Walter Afanasieff. Given that so many talented craftsmen worked on Let's Talk About Love, it makes sense that a number of the cuts succeed according to adult contemporary terms -- they are predictably sweeping showcases for Dion's soaring, technically skilled voice. As usual, the singles (including the Streisand duet "Tell Him" and the Titanic love theme "My Heart Will Go On") shine the most brilliantly, but even the filler is immaculately produced. If the end result doesn't quite gel as an album, that shouldn't be surprising -- this is music by committee, a product that was made to appeal to the widest possible audience. Such a calculated execution guarantees that anyone who liked one of the singles shouldn't be disappointed by Let's Talk About, but it doesn't necessarily mean they'll remember all of the record after it's finished playing. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
