Celine Dion Returns to Television in Oprah OWN Documentary 2015

Superstar singer Celine Dion has literally vanished from the scene while caring for her husband and former manager Rene Angelil battling cancer.


The Canadian songbird also has been dealing with her own vocal issues, which have contributed to a series of delays in returning to her residency at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace.

However, the Internet is keeping Celine very visible to fans with a steady slew of her music videos.

Now comes an extraordinary Oprah Winfrey documentary with never-before-seen, intimate behind-the-scenes footage of Celine at home with Rene, their children and her return to the Caesars Palace stage for her last set of concerts.

It’s airing this month on Oprah Winfrey Network .
Rene admits the difficulty of staging her show and is in tears as he hears her sing after a nearly 18-month break.

It’s emotional and very moving, and watching Celine’s professionalism is a reminder of why she remains at the top.

Celine Dion "Treat Her Like A Lady"(Celine Dion: Au coeur du stade 1999)

"Treat Her Like a Lady" is a song written and recorded by Jamaican reggae singer, Diana King in 1995 for her album "Tougher Than Love". Celine Dion covered the song in 1997 for "Let's Talk About Love" and released it as a single in 1999. Dion's version reached top forty in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Austria.

"Treat Her Like a Lady" is the last single from Celine Dion's album "Let's Talk About Love". It was released on March 29, 1999 in Europe. Dion changed some lyrics, thus gaining co-writing credit. She recorded it together with Diana King and the American girl group Brownstone who did the backing vocals. The track was later remixed by Ric Wake and the Metro.

The single was released between March and June 1999 in Europe, to support the forthcoming "Let's Talk About Love Tour". The performance from the tour was included on the "Celine Dion :Au cœur du stade" DVD.

Celine Dion with Diana King (as a surprise guest) performed the song for the first time in 13 years during her headlining performance at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival on January 27, 2012.

Treat Her Like A Lady
All the girl could want was a little attention 
From a man who's strong and not to mention 
Kiss and caressing her all night long 
But all that boy wants is to hit and run off 
He and his friends-they sit and they laugh 
Going around talking 'bout the girls they used in the past 

You're gonna get what's coming to you 
For all the bad bad things you do to your 

Lady, treat her like a lady 
U'll make a good girl crazy 
If you don't treat her like a lady. (2x) 

She stopped going to church, she don't wanna go to school 
She left with anger when he took her for a fool 
Even though her friends tell her to just keep cool 
Didn't tell her from the start just what he had planned 
Right in her face with another woman 
Now she's in jail for attacking her man 

You're gonna get what's coming to you 
For all the bad bad things you do to your 

Lady, treat her like a lady 
U'll make a good girl crazy 
If you don't treat her like a lady. (2x) 

Tell it to her straight, she can take the truth 
Don't lead her on and leave her confused 
Anyone would rather be alone than be used 
Don't sit and think you'll hurt her feelings 
She only wants to know just what the deal is 
Next time beware of who's heart your breaking (or stealing)

Her Own Words

To me, the show felt like a very important career moment,” she says. “I mean I had the chance to share the stage with these amazing ladies … Gloria Estefan, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Carole King, and the one and only Aretha Franklin, who was one of my idols growing up. This was such an huge honor for me. Those were special moments that I’ll never forget.”

Making Celine Dion Cry: How Ken Ehrlich Impacted Her Performance

Celine Dion Ken Ehrlich
Chanteuse trusted Ken Ehrlich to take her outside her comfort zone

Don Waller
“My favorite moment working with Ken Ehrlich,” says Celine Dion, “was when he invited me to participate in a Grammy Nominations TV special and he wanted me to sing ‘At Seventeen,’ the Janis Ian song for which she won a Grammy in 1976.”

Ehrlich told Dion he’d always imagined her doing that song, and suggested she sing it in a simple setting, with her band onstage. “I ended up loving that song so much that I recorded it for my next album, and I also included it in my Las Vegas show,” she says. “I’m very glad that I trusted in Ken’s creativity.”

Dion and Ehrlich have worked together many times now, including on her Las Vegas shows, and he has been able to persuade her to go outside her comfort zone. Dion likes to include a song in her native French in her Vegas shows, and during rehearsals for the 2011 iteration of her Las Vegas show, Ehrlich suggested “Ne Me Quitte Pas” (Don’t Leave Me), which was a hit for Jacques Brel.

“I didn’t want to do that song,” she recalls. “It was so intense and emotional that I didn’t feel comfortable … it made me cry to sing it.” But when she tried the number in rehearsal, she says, “everybody was really moved.”

So she put “Ne Me Quitte Pas” in the show. “I cried almost every night while singing it,” she says, “but the audiences loved it, even if they didn’t understand the words. So I’m glad Ken was persistent. And that’s what I like about Ken. He’s always got great ideas. And new ideas.”

Only One Road
I'm looking back through the years 
Down this highway 
Memories, they all lead up to this one day 
And many dreams lost along the way 
Haunt me still 
I guess they always will 
When love was too much to bear 
I just left it there 
But here I stand face to face 
With this heart of mine 
Livin' without you I only fall behind 
We had a love most people never find 
All this time I never realized 
And the courage I finally found 
Has made me turn around 

(Chorus) 
There is only one road I'm walkin' 
Only one lifetime one heart to guide me 
Only one road I'm walkin' 
But I'm gonna run back, I'm gonna run back 
Cause I need you right here 
Beside me 

I can still hear the song of your laughter 
I can still taste the sorrow of your tears 
We said goodbye but our hearts did not hear 
Now my love there's nothing left to fear 
With all my heart put me through 
It leads me back to you 

(Chorus) 

(Chorus) 

I'm gonna run back, I'm gonna run back 
'Cause I need you right here 
Beside me 

--

Celine Dion "Immortality" Studio Version(Let's Talk About Love 1997)

 Immortality with The BeeGees
So this is who I am, 
And this is all I know, 
And I must choose to live, 
For all that I can give, 
The spark that makes the power grow 

And I will stand for my dream if I can, 
Symbol of my faith in who I am, 
But you are my only, 
And I must follow on the road that lies ahead, 
And I won't let my heart control my head, 
But you are my only 
And we don't say goodbye, 
And I know what I've got to be 

Immortality 
I make my journey through eternity 
I keep the memory of you and me inside 

Fulfill your destiny, 
Is there within the child, 
My storm will never end, 
My fate is on the wind, 
The king of hearts, the joker's wild, 
But we don't say goodbye, 
I'll make them all remember me 

Cos I have found a dream that must come true, 
Every ounce of me must see it though, 
But you are my only 
I'm sorry I don't have a role for love to play, 
Hand over my heart I'll find my way, 
I will make them give to me 

Immortality 
There is a vision and a fire in me 
I keep the memory of you and me, inside 
And we don't say goodbye 
We don't say goodbye 
With all my love for you 
And what else we may do 
We don't say, goodbye
