In three weeks Céline Dion‘s “Taking Chances” tour documentary titled Celine: Through the Eyes of the World will be released. Céline told PopEater, “As an artist, it was extraordinary to be able to visit and see my fans again,” but she also explained how it became a “family adventure.”
Céline just turned 42 and is kicking it off right by sharing her new documentary with all of her fans — her gift to you!
“It was quite an amazing adventure — traveling the world,” Céline told PopEater of her new tour documentary. “It was very different this time for me to do this tour, for a few different reasons, actually, because there’s places that I have never been before —for example, South Africa, Dubai, Malaysia. That was very very exciting. And [to have] my son on tour with me, and also my mother — it was a family adventure”
“As an artist, it was extraordinary to be able to visit and see my fans again,” she explained. “And at the same time, to make, on top of that, the best of it and see the world and see treasures and see beauty — just see the different ways of living and cultures. It was just so nourishing, you learn so much. We grew. Everyone from this tour grew tremendously.”
Sharing the trip with her son meant a lot to her, but motherhood in general does as well.
“It’s not that it transforms you — it gives you a meaning,” she explained. “I was just, all my life, very focused in serving my voice. When I had my son, it gave me a meaning of, like, this is the best reward that I can ever have. What a great feeling that I feel — I felt big, I felt strong, rewarded… I felt like I had such a responsibility. Singing is such a pleasure and it’s so fun, but it’s not importan.t”
“Raising a child is extremely important, it’s the biggest responsibility you can ever have. He needed me, and I was making a difference in his life, and it made me feel so wonderful,” Céline shared. “It was so amazing when I gave birth to my son that I didn’t want to come back to show business. I loved being a mom so much that I did not want to sing again. I didn’t feel the need to. And until I had the spirit that, when he was a year-and-a-half and I wanted to sing in Las Vegas and I could do both — it was possible to do both — then it was incredible. It was a balance, it was beautiful.”
What are her hopes for the future?
“Ooh —I think I just want to be where I am today,” she admitted. “I love my life. I am extremely fortunate. I hope to remain healthy, that would be the main thing. My health will bring me wherever I’m supposed to be. I keep dreaming. I’m positive, I take one thing at a time, I have my wonderful husband and my beautiful son and my entire family — we’re very close — and honestly there’s nothing else for me to wish for. I want to be, in 10 years, exactly where I am today: healthy and happy.”
