Hi there! My name's Barry, and you'll find me on channel #Celine with the same name. :-) I'm sixteen years of age and currently reside in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada as a senior year student at Vancouver College, a local high school. Despite my age, I'm about as big a fan of Céline as you'll find anywhere! I suppose it all started a few years back when I heard her sing Beauty and the Beast with Peabo Bryson. I didn't think much of it at first, but strangely enough, I kept on hearing her name... and voice. And, I suppose it just worked its way from there. As it stands, my favorite English song is without a doubt, It's All Coming Back To Me Now. Choosing a favorite French song tends to be more difficult, simply because they're all so beautiful! Still, Pour que tu m'aimes encore and Je sais pas stand out in my mind.

Although I haven't really considered myself a fan of Celine Dion until recently, I've always loved her music, and can still remember exactly when, several years ago, I first heard her voice. Spending time on #celine has only served to heighten my enthusiasm for her music. The channel is like a family, and I'm learning about so many different things from everyone there!
The reason I love Celine's music is that even during this time when "little girl" voices are the popular thing, shallow lyrics sell, and adult women wear knee socks, pigtails and Mary Jane shoes, Celine looks like a real woman, sings mature songs, and has the only voice in the world that even COULD sing the music that she does, let alone do it so flawlessly.
By the way, the little girl in the picture is not my daughter - she's Taylor, the older of my two little sisters. She and BrookLynn are my favorite subjects...besides Celine!

"What I would like to say about Celine is not how or when I first heard her sing or what my favorite song or album of hers is....but how she makes a difference in my life. Her voice is a powerful thing, it can change a mood, set a situation or bring the world together for 4 minutes. Through the magic of Celine (and the internet) I have met many friendly and generous people, and we share in the joys of Celine's music. So through Celine I have made many friends and have a broader sense of who I am and where I fit in the world. It is the power of the dream..." Jennifer Nightingale, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Age 26.

It think I heard Céline Dion on the radio with The Power Of Love and Think Twice back in 1994. I fell in love with her beautiful voice and I bought the CD The Colour Of My Love. End of 1995 I had maybe 5 CDs. In November 95 I saw Céline in Copenhagen. I was sold. I decided that this would not be the last time I saw her in concert. I also decided that I wanted everything she had ever recorded. Through friends on the Internet I got most of her early albums. Today I have hundreds of her CDs and records in my collection. In May/June 96 I was on vacation in Canada (British Columbia and Quebec). I saw Céline Dion in concert three times. Then there was Copenhagen October 96. In December 96 I went back to Montréal to see Céline Dion again three times and this was where I met the love of my life, Diane Chayer (Sittelle). Diane accepted my proposal in April and May the 3rd 1997 is our wedding day. Céline has really changed my life and I will forever be thankful to the friends I have in Quebec (especially Sylvain). Without your kind help, all this would never have happened. I don't really have any favorite Céline songs, but Seduces Me will forever have a special meaning to me and Diane.

Diane Chayer (alias Sittelle)
I'm Sittelle, the cute little bird that you find in the forests of Quebec. Behind me, there's Diane, who lives in the Montreal region. She's 10 years older than Celine and she works as a market research advisor. She loves birds ;).
Although Diane has always known Celine, she began to like her in 1990 with the album Unison.
She isn't much of a collector... for example, she recently bought Incognito, only because I insisted ;). On the other hand, she is a concert freak: she's attended twenty of Celine's concerts! :) I guess almost everyone knows that she won a trip to Paris in 1994 to see Celine at Olympia! Her favorite songs are Seduces Me, Water From The Moon, Just Walk Away, L'amour existe encore, and Je sais pas.
Her interest for Celine and for the Internet made Diane meet with the most wonderful man, Kenneth Jahn Lavrsen (http://inet.uni-c.dk/~kjl). Of course, she was impressed with his collection ;), but it's the man himself who impressed her the most :). So, Diane and Kenneth are getting married on May 3rd 1997 :). The least we can say is that Celine changed her life ;).
