The new single from Celine’s latest French-language album ‘Sans attendre’ can be heard on Canadian radio stations starting today! Celine sings about her mother in this song. This Mother’s Day, how will you pay tribute to your mother?
Did you guess the song yesterday? The lyrics are from “Je crois toi” (I Believe You), written and produced by Jean-Jacques Goldman, from Celine’s 1998 album ‘S’il suffisait d’aimer’. This song was released as a single in France in July 1999. Celine has performed this song live many times including last summer during her ‘Céline.... une seule fois’ concert on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City. If you’ve never seen Celine sing this song live, here’s your chance! Preorder the DVD or Blu-ray to not only see Celine perform “Je crois toi” but also to experience the magic of the entire concert!
Can you guess which Celine song the following lyrics are from?
La pluie, les éclairs et les chats noirs (Rain, lightning and black cats)
La vie me glace d'effroi (Life fills me with fear)
Soudain je sursaute en ne croisant qu'un miroir (Suddenly I startle simply when crossing a mirror)
Mais n'ai-je peur que de moi ? (But am I only afraid of myself?)
Find out the answer tomorrow!
