Celine Dion Net Worth Is $400 Million

With an instantly recognizable voice worldwide, Celine Dion is arguably one of Canada’s greatest exports. Born into a large family, she emerged as a teen star in the French-speaking world and finally gained international recognition in 1982 when she won The Yamaha World Popular Song Festival and it skyrocketed in 1988 when she won The Eurovision Song Contest as a representative of Switzerland. Her entry into The English speaking world was marked with her signing into Epic Records releasing several albums that shot her into the record books as one of the world’s most successful pop artists.

She draws her influences from genres as diverse as rock and classical music and although her songs are mainly in English and French, she has been known to sing in Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Italian, German and Spanish. Her distinct and powerful vocal style has earned her five Grammy Awards and has been listed as the greatest selling Canadian artiste of all time. She has drawn  admirers and critics in equal measure. In addition to this, her 1995 album D’eux is the best-selling French album of all time.

Anybody who watched the Film The Titanic remembers the ballad My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion. This song is what finally landed her into the mainstream audience and eventually became her signature song. The success of the song was attributed to the film as well as its beautifully arranged and classically influenced style. The song landed her an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and two Grammy Awards; by all means an impressive feat.

With her massive success of the 90s, she decided to take a hiatus to focus on her family, especially her husband Angelil who had been diagnosed with throat cancer. She came back to the music scene in 2002 and although her subsequent works were a commercial success, she couldn’t relive the same success as her previous material. This was a major point for her critics who claimed that her style was mediocre and hadn’t developed as much.

Celine claims that she draws her inspiration from musical greats such as The Bee Gees, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Anne Murray and Carole King. Her lyrics tend to focus on themes such as motherhood, poverty, world hunger, spirituality, love and romance. Hate her or love her, you have to admit, her $400 million fortune is nothing to be sniffed at.
