"Singing in French represents a return to my roots, but the music is as eclectic and adventurous as any I have ever recorded." "I only hope that the public will enjoy listening to this album as much as I enjoyed making it." - Celine Dion

Celine : "The album was originally going to be entitled "Pour que tu m'aimes encore." The name was good, but it wasn't quite right..."
Valérie Michelin (Head Producer at Sony Music France at the time): "The idea for the title came from a brainstorming session with Virginie Auclair, Creative Director at Columbia."
Celine : "...it was refreshing to have a title that wasn’t one of the songs on the album but represented them nonetheless. The album reflects Jean-Jacques' incredible talent together with what I humbly contributed. He enjoyed writing the songs, and I enjoyed singing them."

Today, TeamCeline celebrates the 20th anniversary of 'D'eux', the best-selling French album of all-time with more than 10 million copies sold worldwide.
In February 1994, before developing the friendship they now have, Jean-Jacques Goldman, already a huge star in France, decided to write an entire album for Celine focusing on her love life (''Pour que tu m'aimes encore'', ''Je sais pas'', ''J'attendais'') and her professional life (''Destin''). The album allowed Celine to explore many new musical styles, including blues (''Le ballet''), rock ‘n roll (''J'irai où tu iras''), rhythm ‘n blues (''Regarde-moi''), gospel (''Prière païenne''), pop (''Les derniers seront les premiers'', ''Cherche encore'') and ballads (''La mémoire d'Abraham''). The album ends with the touching song ''Vole'' dedicated to Celine’s niece Karine, who passed away from Cystic Fibrosis two years earlier.

Celine Dion broke down during news interview about her husband Renee's health. Guest host and close friend of Dion and husband Renee says, "Celine [Dion] and Rene are such special people...they were one of the reasons why I even had a career in this business...Her voice, her ability, it gives him life, and so for him to say to her I want you to go out there and give that to other people, that's typical them.
