Celine Dion is one of the most well known female vocalists of all time. She has achieved great success in both music and film. Celine first hit the scene in the early seventies with the song “Video Killed the Radio Star.” Celine quickly became a fan favorite and went on to make fifteen movies with her name attached to them. Celine is also well known for being a talented singer/songwriter.
Celine first hit the charts with the single Video Killed the Radio Star. The song was extremely popular and reached number one on the charts. This lead to Celine making fourteen additional albums as a lead vocalist and songwriter. Celine also became a popular television personality on the popular show The Ringer. Celine became particularly successful with her song Right Now, Here Comes the Money, which went on to be the second selling single from that album and has remained a top hit ever since.
As a vocalist, Celine has made a number of hit singles including Hips Don’t Lie, She’s Not That Pretty, and She’s Always Been Your Best Friend. However, it would be Celine Dion’s song Right Now, Here Comes the Money which would take her to the next level of popularity. The single reached number one in the United Kingdom and Australia and remained at that spot for eleven weeks, which makes it one of the more impressive chart hits in history.
Right Now, Here Comes the Money was used as Celine’s entrance song on her first American record, The Biggest Loser, where it remains a popular hit. It became another hit single with Celine and was later used in the song Thriller by A-ha. Celine also used it in the video for Celine Dion’s song Happy.
Celine also had a role in the musical, Chances Are, as well as the movie, It’s a Wonderful Life. She also had a starring role in the movie, Chicago. In that film, she played Hazel, the mother of Henry Louis Gates Jr., who was a young man with a learning disability who worked with his father as a mail carrier. Her role in the film helped her attain some Grammys for her work in the English-language album.
Celine’s best selling album was last year’s Reunion, which sold an estimated two million copies in its first week of release. The album’s lead single was the aforementioned song Right Now, Here Comes the Money. Other notable Reunion tracks included Champagne, Blue Wine and Black Coffee. Reunion was Celine’s fourth top-selling single, giving her the distinction of the third best pop album by earning more Grammys (including Best Rock Album) than any other artist ever has. Reunion remains Celine’s highest selling album ever, even with the release of its follow-up album A Taste of Honey
