Decades into her career and Celine Dion is still one of the world's most distinguished and celebrated voices. To date, the Quebec native has sold more than 200 million albums, won five GRAMMYs and earned more than $20 million in Las Vegas ticket sales alone.
And the Canadian songstress isn’t even 50 yet.
Her latest release, theFrench album Encore en soir, sold more than one million copies following its release last year and soon Celine will add another chart-topper to her impressive discography with the release of her first English-speaking album since 2013's Loved Me Back to Life.
She's just as resilient in her personal life, too, as the road to success hasn’t always been easy for the Canadian songbird. The mother of three continues to be a beacon of strength for her sons René-Charles and twins Eddy and Nelson following the tragic passing of her beloved husband René Angelil in January 2016.
To celebrate one of our national treasures on her 49th birthday, we look back at 49 photos from Celine Dion's monumental career and beautiful family.
