Celine Dion released her first album back in 1981 when she was just 12 years old and has had an incredible career since then.

She became a household name when she won the Eurovision Song Content at 20 years old, representing Switzerland with her track 'Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi'.
In the 1990s, with the help of her manager and later husband, Rene Angelil, she achieved international fame releasing several English albums.
She remains one of the best-selling artists of all time with album sales of over 200 million copies worldwide.

9. Tell Him (1997)

When Streisand was reluctant to perform 'I Finally Found Someone' at the 1997 Academy Awards, Dion agreed to step in. Streisand thanked her afterwards and said that next time they should sing together. Rene Angelil called up David Foster and had him write a duet for the pair.

10. Beauty And The Beast (1991)

At this stage of her career, Celine had only just begun to learn English, however, Rene Angelil put her forward for the duet and Alan Menken approved. She sang it with American Peabo Bryson and it was a top ten hit in the UK.
