Everyone loves Céline Dion! With great excitement we finally get to hear her brand new material at last from her first English-language Disc since 2007’s Taking Chances. Penned by Sia Furler, Loved Me Back to Life is a big, sweeping Track which perfectly captures the essence what the Quebec-born Diva is all about. Drama, Power and pure Emotion. Oh how we’ve missed that remarkable Voice!
Melodically it reminds us of Whitney Houston‘s I’m Your Baby Tonight no? Especially in the Hook?
Dion will perform Loved Me Back to Life on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Friday, September 6, 2013 and also on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, September 11, 2013.
Listen to the Track in full below:

With just two months till the 2013 JUNO Awards, this year’s Nominees were announced today and dominating this year is Carly Rae Jepsen, who has made a big splash internationally with her Hit Call Me Maybe. Jepsen is in the running to win: JUNO Fan Choice, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Pop Album of the Year.
Although he was responsible for helping her Call Me Maybe become a major Hit virally, Justin Bieber was no match for Jepsen, but certainly not disgraced. He’s up for four JUNOs this year including: Album of the Year, JUNO Fan Choice, Artist of the Yearand Pop Album of the Year.
Up for International Album of the Year this year are Mumford & Sons (Babel), Rod Stewart (Merry Christmas, Baby), Taylor Swift (Red), One Direction (Up All Night) and Maroon 5 (Overexposed), the latter coincidentally in Toronto today on-tour.
In addition to Canada’s Cream of the Crop in Music being at Regina’s Brandt Centre on JUNO Day, Megastar Michael Bublé will be performing a brand new Single that day. Fans have been hungry for non-Christmas Music from the Crooner since his Crazy Love was released in 2009.
Also, Sony Music Canada, Universal Music Canada and Warner Music Canada are teaming together to release a Compilation Disc containing this year’s Nominees, titled The JUNO Awards 2013 Nominee Compilation, in-stores March 19, 2013. Proceeds will go to MusiCounts, Canada’s Music Education Charity.

You won’t believe your ears! Céline Dion took part in CCTV‘s annual Chinese New Year Gala, which aired earlier today (tomorrow overseas). The Canadian Diva paired with Chinese Singer Zuying Song for a Duet on Jasmine Flower, where Dion‘s gratuitous riffs and runs were heard on the traditional Classic. To be honest, her pronunciation was actually pretty impressive! And that Ladies and Gentlemen, is why she truly is an international Megastar.
Watch the Performance in full below:
And of course, no Céline Dion performance is complete without a rendition of her biggest Hit, My Heart Will Go On:
Dion‘ s next English Studio Album Water and a Flame, is slated for a release Fall 2013 via Sony Music and will be a part-Covers Album, with some new Songs. It has been confirmed that a Duet with Stevie Wonder on his Classic Overjoyed will be included, while Babyface and Ne-Yo also have signed-on to produce Tracks. On-board again is iconic Ballad Writer Diane Warren who penned a Tune for her called Unfinished Songs.
