The United Nations designated September 21 as International Day of Peace and it is celebrated everywhere around the world. This cause has a special significance for Celine (Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations) since she performed the song “Une colombe” (A Dove) in front of 65,000 people at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium during a visit by Pope John Paul II in September 1984. The song is an ode to love and world peace. Included on her album ‘Mélanie’, this was one of Celine’s first big hits. The track can also be found on the ‘On ne change pas’ compilation.
