Do you know where Celine has recorded a few songs for her upcoming English album? Part of the magic is being created at the Studio at the Palms, hidden in the heart of the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. It’s one of the world’s only two studios built inside a hotel. This isn’t her first time at this studio; Celine recorded songs for her 2007 releases, 'Taking Chances' and 'D’elles' there. What’s Celine like when she’s recording? Studio Director Zoe Thrall has the answer: “Celine is the best, there’s no doubt. No one comes close. Celine and her team are always ready when they get to the studio. I’ve never seen anyone work this hard. Sometimes she’s come to the studio, ready to work, right after she performing a show. How she does it I don’t know, but it just show how incredible she is.”
May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. Celine, who is the National Celebrity Patron for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, recently taped a video message about the importance of cystic fibrosis newborn screening.
