Celine Dion to coach the finalists on 'La Voix Junior'

Celine Dion surprised the finalists on La Voix Junior when she dropped in to coach the talented young singers for the singing competition's finale on Nov. 27.

The seven singers had no idea that their surprise mentor would be the Canadian icon. Celine was delighted to share some of her wisdom with the youngsters, who will sing to win on Sunday's show. The series, a spin-off of NBC's The Voice, is hosted by Maripier Morin and airs on TVA in Quebec.

Celine will mentor the finalists on Sunday's episode.

"I loved my meeting with Charles, Brenden, Andy, Rafael, Leticia, Zion-Luna and Camila. I saw myself in them, when I began my career at their age. Eyes full of dreams and wonder. I hope my comments will help them to sing with an open heart," said the singer in a statement before wishing the contestants the best of luck.

Celine knows a thing or two about performing at a young age. She was discovered by her late husband René Angélil at the age of 13 and soon released her debut album La voix du bon Dieu. Before her 18th birthday, the Charlemagne-native already had nine French albums under her belt.
