Celine Dion - If You Asked Me To ( Live 1992)

video
On September 30, 1992, Celine made her first appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show, where she performed "If You Asked Me To" a song that can be found on her self-titled album 'Celine Dion'.

Used to be that I believed in something
Used to be that I believed in love
It's been a long time since I've had that feeling
I could love someone
I could trust someone
I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again darlin'
I said I'd never let nobody in

But if you asked me to

I just might change my mind
And let you in my life, forever
If you asked me to
I just might give my heart
And stay here in your arms forever
If you asked me to
If you asked me to

Somehow ever since I've been around you

Can't go back to being on my own
Can't help feeling darling since
I've found you
That I've found my home
That I'm finally home
I said I'd never let nobody get too close to me darling
I said I needed, needed to be free

(But if you asked me to...)


Ask me to, I will give my world to you baby

I need you now
Ask me to, I'll do anything for you baby, for you baby

If you asked me to

I'd let you in my life forever
If you asked me to

Celine Dion - L'amour existe encore ( 'Pour la vie' 2001)

video
On September 28, 2001, Celine participated in a benefit concert 'Québec - New York: Un show pour la vie', organized in Montreal in aid of victims of the September 11 attacks. She performed "L'amour existe encore".

 Quand je m'endors contre ton corps
Alors je n'ai plus de doute
L'amour existe encore

Toutes mes années de déroute
Toutes, je les donnerais toutes
Pour m'ancrer à ton port

La solitude que je redoute
Qui me guette au bout de ma route
Je la mettrai dehors

Pour t'aimer une fois pour toutes
Pour t'aimer coûte que coûte
Malgré ce mal qui court
Et met l'amour à mort

Quand je m'endors contre ton corps
Alors je n'ai plus de doute
L'amour existe encore

L'amour existe encore...

On n'était pas du même bord
Mais au bout du compte on s'en fout
D'avoir raison ou d'avoir tort

Le monde est mené par des fous
Mon amour il n'en tient qu'à nous
De nous aimer plus fort

Au-delà de la violence
Au-delà de la démence
Malgré les bombes qui tombent
Aux quatre coins du monde

Quand je m'endors contre ton corps
Alors je n'ai plus de doute
L'amour existe encore
L'amour existe encore
L'amour existe encore...

Pour t'aimer une fois pour toutes
Pour t'aimer coûte que coûte
Malgré ce mal qui court
Et met l'amour à mort

Quand je m'endors contre ton corps
Alors je n'ai plus de doute
L'amour existe encore

Celine Dion for March of Dimes Foundation 2012

The global toll of preterm birth is harsh. The 2009 March of Dimes White Paper on Preterm Birth estimated that worldwide, 13 million babies are born too soon each year. More than 1 million of these premature babies die before their first birthday.

This problem is truly global, affecting families everywhere. Although the vast majority of preterm births and related deaths occur in poor countries, families in wealthier nations are also at risk of having a baby born preterm. In fact, the number of premature babies born in the United States has increased 36 percent over the last quarter of a century.

While 13 million is a huge number, it is an estimate at best, because many countries do not have the capacity to collect adequate data on preterm births.

Celine Dion Live Regis & Kelly (2003)

Full show + Celine sang a beautiful song "Have  You Ever Been in Love".


Have you ever been in love
You could touch the moonlight
When your heart is shooting stars
You're holding heaven in your arms
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever walked on air, ever
Felt like you were dreamin'
When you never thought it could
But it really feels that good
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever been in love
You could touch the moonlight
When your heart is shooting stars
You're holding heaven in your arms
Have you ever been in love?
The time I spent waiting for something
That was heaven sent
When you find it don't let go
I know...
Have you ever said a prayer
And found that it was answered
All my hope has been restored
I ain't looking anymore
Have you ever been...
Some place that you ain't leavin'
Somewhere you gonna stay
When you finally found the meanin'
Have you ever felt this way?
The time I spent waiting for something
That was heaven sent
When you find it don't let go
I know...
Have you ever been in love
You could touch the moonlight
You can even reach the stars
Doesn't matter near or far
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever been in love?
So in love

Celine Dion - Bozo

video
In September of 1983, Celine performed at the inauguration of the Théâtre Félix-Leclerc, named after the famous poet and singer who was one of the first Québécois artists to become successful in France. The now late Félix Leclerc attended the event, and Celine honored him by singing his famous song "Bozo”in 1997.

Dans un marais
De joncs mauvais
Y'avait
Un vieux château
Aux longs rideaux
Dans l'eau

Dans le château
Y'avait bozo
Le fils du matelot
Maître céans
De ce palais branlant

Vous devinez que cette histoire
Est triste à boire
Puisque Bozo le fou du lieu
Est amoureux

Celle qu'il aime n'est pas venue
C'est tout entendu
Comprenez ça
Elle n'existe pas...

Si vous passez
Par ce pays
La nuit
Y'a un fanal
Comme un signal
De bal
Dansez, chantez
Bras enlacés
Afin de consoler
Pauvre Bozo
Pleurant sur son radeau

Le P'tit Bonheur

C'est un petit bonheur
Que j'avais ramassé
Il était tout en pleurs
Sur le bord d'un fossé
Quand il m'a vu passer
Il s'est mis à crier:
«Monsieur, ramassez-moi,
Chez vous emmenez-moi.

Mes frès m'ont oublié, je suis tombé, je suis malade
Si vous n'me cueillez point je vais mourrir, quelle ballade!
Je me ferez petit, tendre et soumis, je vous le jure,
Monsieur, je vous en prie, délivrez-moi de ma torture
Monsieur, je vous en prie, délivrez-moi de ma torture.»

Moi, Mes Souliers

Moi, mes souliers ont beaucoup voyagé,
Ils m'ont porté de l'école à la guerre,
J'ai traversé sur mes souliers ferrés
Le monde et sa misère

Moi, mes souliers ont passé dans les prés
Moi, mes souliers ont piétiné la lune
Puis mes souliers ont couché chez les fées
Et fait dansé plus d'une........

Attends-moi, «Ti-gars»

Attends-moi, ti-gars,
Tu vas tomber si j'suis pas là
Le plaisir de l'un
C'est d'voir l'autre se casser l'cou

La voisine a rit d'nous autres parce qu'on avait 12 enfants
Changé son fusil d'épaule depuis qu'elle en a autant

Attends-moi, ti-gars,
Tu vas tomber si j'suis pas là
Le plaisir de l'un
C'est d'voir l'autre se casser l'cou

Il est jeune, il est joli
Il est riche, il est poli
Mais une chose l'ennuie
C'est son valet qui a l'génie

Attends-moi, ti-gars,
Tu vas tomber si j'suis pas là
Le plaisir de l'un
C'est d'voir l'autre se casser l'cou

Le Train Du Nord

Dans l'train pour Sainte-Adèle
Y'avait un homme qui voulait débarquer
Mais allez donc débarquer
Quand l'train file cinquante milles à l'heure
Et qu'en plus vous êtes conducteur

Oh! le train du Nord

Oh! Dans le train pour Sainte-Adèle
Y'avait rien qu'un passager,
C'était encore le conducteur,
Imaginez pour voyager
Si c'est pas la vraie p'tite douleur...

Oh! le train du Nord!

Le train du Nord
Le train du Nord
A perdu l'Nord,
Rendu l'aut'bord,
Le train du Nord
A perdu l'Nord
Mais c'est pas moi qui vas l'blâmer
Oh! le train du Nord
 

The unforgettable moment with Celine Dion("When health goes, everything goes." )

I leave you with a photo taken of my daughter with Céline Dion, nothing less. My daughter has been photographed for the great wall of Ste-Justine Hospital, not because she was sick, but because they took these pictures at the Salon Maternity, a few years ago already. As part of this promotion with Celine, there was a benefit concert at the Bell Centre and few have had the chance to meet in a small room before the show. What is unique is that we all remain seated and it is beautiful diva who went around to greet and take a picture with each child. Of course my Jeanne rose to go see it and it was very generous, she hugged for this photo. When she left the room, my daughter is still raised and she started to sing and dance with her. I do not know if the lyrics are a real song or if it was improvisation, but this is what she sang:
"Quand on chante, tout va, quand on chante, chante, chante tout va…
Quand on danse, tout va, quand on danse, danse, danse, tout va…"
 This moment will always be with me this morning I thought about it because I added that "When health goes, everything goes." I'm sure Celine would agree with me ...

Celine Covers “At Seventeen”

"At Seventeen", written by Janis Ian and first released in 1975 is about being unpopular and feeling alienated while growing up; something that many people experience. Last year in an interview with Brendan Kelly of the Montreal Gazette, Celine revealed that when she first heard the lyrics she could relate, the song “touched me tremendously. I could feel for the first time that somebody was singing about the way I was feeling when I was a young teenager. Totally feeling awkward about the way I looked and where my place was in teenager-hood and schoolyards.” Did you know that Celine performed “At Seventeen” for the first time at the 2008 Grammy Nominations television special as a tribute to Janis Ian? Celine later included the song in her 
 Las Vegas show.

What it’s Like to Meet Celine Dion !

When I first moved to Las Vegas more than six years ago, Celine Dion was at the height of her domination of Strip entertainment. I never, ever in a million years would have guessed that someday I would meet her! My moment came this past Sunday, before her very last show at the Colosseum until the end of December. It was a huge show, and I couldn’t be more honored that she wanted to spend her time backstage before it with us. In fact, she couldn’t have been more gracious in everything that she did for us! As you can see here, this all came about because of her being the cover star of our September issue of Vegas magazine. 

Since I was meeting Celine on a Sunday evening, every salon was closed. House-call it was! I didn’t mind the extra money — this was a very important night. Not only was I going to meet the person who changed the entertainment culture on the Strip forever, but it was also the party at which I would first see people’s reactions to what I consider the best issue of my career.

 When I arrived at the Colosseum, rushing and late of course, I couldn’t believe all of the tourists taking photos of Celine’s sign. These weren’t necessarily fans taking photos to commemorate the night they saw the show — it was an hour and a half before it began. These were mostly tourists who were just so happy to see her theater! 

At six pm, our little group of about 40 people were ushered inside — in groups of 10, because that’s all the elevator down to Celine’s green room would allow. Celine herself was scheduled to arrive at 7 pm, giving us plenty of time to drink champagne and build excitement. Me? I was so nervous! I stood in the corner and watched people flip through the issue. The praise from the people in Celine’s camp was tremendous. I couldn’t have been happier! 

When she arrived, about ten minutes after 7 pm, Celine couldn’t have been more of a class act. Even though I knew she opened her show in a glittering, floor-length Armani Prive gown, the super-star songstress blew into the room in a hot little pink/red number. Less than 30 minutes from her curtain call, she worked the room like a pro. “Hi, how are you? Let’s take a picture!” she said with such energy, as she made her way through our little crowd. “You in the back? Why are you in the back? Let’s take a picture!” She shook hands with every single person and somehow squeezed in at least 20 photos and a TV interview into 16 minutes. I swear it felt like an hour!



Yes, even though I lean towards super-chill vacations in Costa Rica and love adventure sports such as off-roading and even the gun range, my day job is building a magazine page-by-page, as editor-in-chief of Vegas magazine. When this wall is full, it is finally time for the magazine to come out.
We’ve gotten so much attention around the world for this issue, and I couldn’t be happier. She gave a wonderful and fascinating interview, Queen Celine, written by the enormously talented Marco della Cava. It can be so refreshing when the best writers are also the easiest and most thrilling to work with!

As we made our way out to the audience, everyone was on cloud nine. She was a few minutes late onto stage, and I couldn’t believe that that was because she agreed to our little party on her “last” show for a few months. (We will miss her until December!) I sat on the very edge of our group, seated right next to a super fan, who gasped and talked throughout the entire show. (“What will she do next? Ohmygod I can’t… No way, she did not.”) I almost wanted to tell him that I was just with her!

I’m sure I don’t have to say this again, but it was an amazing night!

Celine Dion - "Parler à mon père" (English lyrics)

I Want To Talk To With My Father
I want to forget that time exists
For just one shining moment
Take a rest after the race
And go where my heart tells me

I want to reconnect with my roots.
Find my path, my place in life
And keep my treasured memories
Hidden in the warmth of my secret garden.

I want to swim the ocean wide, spread like an eagle and take flight
Think of everything I've seen and even head into the unknown.
I want to capture the moon, maybe even save the world
But above all I want to talk to my father
Talk to my father...

I want to pick out a boat
Not the nicest, not the biggest
I would fill it with all the sights
And smells of my journeys.

I want to stop and take a seat
And find within my memory
The voices of those who taught me
To never give up on my dreams.

I want to find within my heart, the colours that represent my art.
From this decor filled with pure lines, where I see you, which calms my soul.
I want to capture the moon, maybe even save the world.
But above all, I want to talk to my father
I want to talk to my father...

I want to forget that time exists
For just one shining moment
Take a rest after the race
A go where my heart tells me.

I want to reconnect with my roots
Find my path, my place in life
And keep my treasured memories
Hidden away in the warmth of my secret garden

I want to run away with you
I want to dream with you
Always seeking the unattainable
Always hoping for the impossible
I want to capture the moon,
And why not save the world,
But above all, I want to talk to my father
I want to talk to my father
Talk to my father
(Jacques Veneruso)
