Circle Tuesday, November 16, on your calendar! That's the day Celine's greatest hits album 'All The Way - A Decade Of Song' will be in stores!

Celine is the world's best-selling solo artist and a five-time Grammy Award winner, she has sold more than 100 million albums in the past decade. 'All The Way' begins with nine of Celine's best-loved recordings, including her Number One singles "The Power Of Love," "Because You Loved Me (Theme From Up Close And Personal)," "I'm Your Angel," and the Grammy and Academy Award-winning classic "My Heart Will Go On (Love Theme From Titanic)." Also included are "Beauty And The Beast," winner of the 1992 Academy Award for Best Song Written For A Motion Picture Or Television; the smash "It's All Coming Back to Me Now"; and the hit "If You Asked Me To."

'All The Way' also includes seven brand-new songs, all recorded in the summer of '99 specifically for this collection. Here are just a few of the highlights:

"That's The Way It Is" - The premiere single and video from the album, produced by Max Martin and Kristian Lundin (Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears), "That's The Way It Is" is a heartfelt mid-tempo track perfectly in tune with contemporary pop music.

"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" - This classic Ewen MacColl ballad became a No. 1 hit for Roberta Flack in 1972. David Foster's sensitive production and orchestration frame one of Celine's finest vocal performances.

"All The Way" - The late Frank Sinatra was one of Celine's all-time favorite singers. Written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn, this Dion/Sinatra duet is the title song of the collection and a respectful and loving tribute.

"If Walls Could Talk" - Celine's first collaboration with writer/producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, best known for his multi-platinum recordings with Shania Twain.

"I Want You To Need Me" - A powerful new ballad from the prolific pen of Diane Warren, Grammy Award-winning composer of "If You Asked Me To," "Love Can Move Mountains," and "Because You Loved Me (Theme From Up Close And Personal)." This track is produced by Matt Serletic, a maker of state-of-the-art rock records with Matchbox 20, Sugar Ray, and Aerosmith, among others.

To support her new release, Celine be making many US television appearances including Oprah (Tuesday, November 16), The Today Show (Monday, November 22), The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (Thursday, December 9), and Rosie O'Donnell (Monday, December 13).
