One in 3,600 babies born in Canada has cystic fibrosis (CF). There is no cure. However, earlier diagnosis means earlier treatment. Screening newborns for CF saves lives and that’s why it is a standard of care in Canada with the exception of Prince Edward Island and Quebec. Join Celine and raise your voice by signing Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s petition to advocate for cystic fibrosis newborn screening in Prince Edward Island. In Quebec, residents are encouraged to raise their voices by contacting their Member of the National Assembly to explain the importance of early detection and treatment. Together we can make a difference!
One year ago today, Celine performed an invitation-only intimate concert at the Edison Ballroom in New York City, presented by Pandora. She performed songs from her album ‘Loved Me Back To Life’ as well as some of her biggest hits. Watch Celine sing the title track from the album released on November 5, 2013.
Did you know that Celine listened to a lot of American music even before she learned to speak English? With a pen or hairbrush in hand, she would sing in front of the mirror, imitating artists like Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder. One song she loved to perform over and over again was the 1980s Irene Cara hit "What A Feeling" from the movie Flashdance. The movie was particularly inspiring for Celine because of its message of not giving up on your dreams. Since then Celine has recorded inspiring songs of her own. Do you draw inspiration from Celine’s songs? Which Celine song motivates you to work hard to achieve your dreams?
