Celine announced her relationship with René to the world through the liner notes of 'The Colour of My Love' album: “Rene, for so many years I’ve kept our special dream locked away inside my heart…But now it’s getting too powerful to keep this inside of me…So after all these years, let me ‘Paint the truth, show how I feel, try to make you completely real’…Rene, you’re the colour of my love. L.V.” Such a romantic gesture. Feeling inspired? We invite you to create special art pieces honouring Celine and René and share them in the Forum!

Relive the magical experience with ‘Céline à l’Olympia’ !

The powerful and soulful track “Breakaway” was the second single in the UK from ‘Loved Me Back To Life’.

Did you know that the album was certified gold in the UK, just three weeks after its release and was later certified Platinum?
