"L'amour existe encore" (Love Still Exists) is a touching ballad written by Luc Plamondon and Richard Cocciante, included on Celine’s 1991 album ‘Dion chante Plamondon’. Although it was released as a single in Canada in 1991, the video was shot much later when the song was released as a single in France in 1994. The video was nominated for ‘Video of the Year’ at Quebec’s Gala de l’ADISQ in 1994. On September 28, 2001, Celine appropriately performed this moving song at the benefit concert 'Québec - New York: Un show pour la vie', organized in Montreal in aid of victims of the September 11 attacks.
“I love the way our lives keep changing. There’s one great thing about knowledge in life, about experience, about maturity, about time, about getting older and that’s knowing what you stand for, what you believe in. It would be so very sad if we just grew older to die. There must be something good about this. There must be a good reason why we mature and we move on.” - Excerpt from Celine’s interview in the Toronto Star newspaper published January 24, 2014.

Over the years, many young female artists have credited Celine for inspiring them to become singers. Among them is Tessane Chin, the season 5 winner of the popular singing competition ‘The Voice’. Tessane performed a duet with Celine on the live season finale show. She said of Celine:
“She is my idol! I remember watching everything she has done since I was a 12-year-old girl.” “She is a woman that I hold regard for. I want to thank her for inspiring me and making me feel that this is possible. Her story is such a story — she is so inspiring with 14 brothers and sisters and living a very modest lifestyle and look at her now!"
Does Celine inspire you as well? Tell us how!
