Celine Dion is a name that needs no introduction.
The vocal powerhouse behind some of the world's most famous songs, she's an artist that has gone platinum more times than we can count. But beyond the albums, hit songs and sold-out tours, Celine Dion's personal life is one that has been marked with a painful amount of tragedy.
Watch Celine Dion and René Angelil's love story. Post continues after video.
Celine Dion was born on March 30, 1968, in Charlemagne, Québec, a little town outside of Montreal. She entered into a busy household, as she was not the second, nor the third child of her parents Thérèse Tanguay and Adhémar Dion – she was their 14th baby.
Due to the sheer number of people in the Dion household, each room was overflowing with kids – leaving no room for Celine, who slept in a drawer for the first part of her life.
The entire Dion family shared the same passion: a deep appreciation for music. This meant the home was filled with tunes whenever possible, and the children even formed a music group that would perform at local concerts. As the baby of the family, Celine was late to join the band, but her mother has always said that she could spot Celine's talent from a young age.
