You go, girl! Celine Dion has single-handedly amassed a fortune most of us could only dream about in her more than three-decade career. Keep scrolling for details on the superstar’s net worth!
What Is Celine Dion’s Net Worth?
The “My Heart Will Go On” singer is reportedly worth $800 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Though she is one of the most respected names in pop music today, the powerhouse vocalist worked hard for years to cement her status as a living legend.
Celine Dion’s Music Career Began as a Teenager
Celine launched her music career in 1981 with the release of her debut album, The Good Lord’s Voice, which was released in French and was produced and funded by her former manager and now-late-husband, René Angélil. He sadly died at age 73 in January 2016 after a battle with throat cancer.
While she had been making music for nearly 10 years, the entertainer didn’t gain mainstream recognition until she recorded “Beauty and the Beast” — the theme song to Disney’s 1991 animated film of the same name — with Peabo Bryson.
Celine opened up about how lending her voice to the movie’s soundtrack changed her life while speaking with Entertainment Tonight in May 2017. “Beauty and the Beast had put me on the map [over] 25 years ago,” the recording artist — who released the song “How Does a Moment Last Forever” for Disney’s 2017 live-action reboot of the film — told the outlet. “And I do respect that tremendously.”
By 1996, Celine had become the queen of soundtrack hits. As fans may recall, her No. 1 song “Because You Loved Me” served as the signature tune for Up Close & Personal, starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert Redford.
“Because You Loved Me” earned Celine two Grammys, along with nominations for both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award. And that all happened before she blessed the world with yet another incredible movie-inspired classic — 1997’s “My Heart Will Go On,” the song that has become synonymous with James Cameron’s Titanic.
Not surprisingly, the epic track won Celine two more Grammys — and she finally nabbed the Golden Globe she was robbed of before. Since then, the mom-of-three — she shares son René-Charles and twin sons Eddy and Nelson with her late husband — has racked up a total of five Grammys.
Celine Dion Had 2 Las Vegas Residencies
In 2003, the Canadian superstar kicked off her Las Vegas residency, A New Day…, which ran for nearly five years at Caesars Palace. According to Billboard, her more than 700-performance show remains the highest grossing residency of all time, bringing in a reported $385 million.
Celine returned to the Nevada desert four years later for a second residency which ran from 2011 to 2019. The 427 performances earned her a whopping $296.2 million, The Hollywood Reporter reported at the time.
Aside from wowing crowds night after night with her show-stopping concert on the Strip, Celine has released 26 studio albums — which have gone on to sell more than 220 million copies worldwide.
According to the “I’m Alive” songstress, she has her fans to thank for all her success.
“I don’t want to sound pretentious,” she told ET in 2016, “but I think beyond the music, I think I do have a relationship with my fans that are [pushing] me [along], saying, ‘You know what, Celine?’ They’ve been such supporters in my good days and my bad days.”
Why Did Celine Dion Cancel Her 2023 ‘Courage’ World Tour?
“As the world has emerged from the pandemic, Celine has continued to be treated for a diagnosed medical condition that prevents her from performing,” her team’s statement read. “Celine is working hard on her recovery. … We do have every hope that someday soon, Celine will be able to come to all of these cities in Europe to perform for her amazing fans, but that time is simply not now.”
