Switzerland: Celine Dion Back With New SingleWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
There have been quite a number of participants who were clearly newcomers to the music industry when they first emerged on the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest and back in 1998 when the music competition took place in Dublin, Ireland there was a young lady by the name of Celine Dion from Canada who was representing Switzerland having won a national final where she had submitted the song Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi. She gave an outstanding rendition of the track at the international event and managed to seal the victory with a mere one point, just ahead of Scott Fitzgerald for the United Kingdom who also gave a truly beautiful performance of his ballad, Go. Since then, Celine Dion has gone onto sign a major record deal with Sony Music and has sold millions of records around the world achieving the status of a true icon.
She has released twenty-three (23) albums thus far, in French and in English in order to support her respective markets in Canada and France apart from selling them worldwide. Her last studio albums came about five years ago noting that she has been busy with a residency in Las Vegas but her fans will be intriguing to know that she is recording two new albums, one which bears the name Water and a Flame and the other which is entitled Sans Attendre. They will be released onto the music market in October and November respectively. It is quite funny that the first single to come out is of the latter and it is a simple, sweet ballad dedicated to her father hence forth the title being Parler à Mon Père. In recent months, things have not been plain sailing for the performing, having been operated due to vocal issues, one which have also been dealt with by the likes of Adele but things were successful and indeed, at forty four (44) years of age, she sounds better than she has ever sounded. Have a listen to her brand new single below and let us know what you think. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more information about icons from the world of the Eurovision Song Contest.
