Her Husband Had to Convince Her to Record Her Signature Song
Going back to Celine’s apprehensions regarding My Heart Will Go On, it was her husband (and manager) Rene who persuaded her to record the song. She explained in an interview that Angelil convinced her to “do a demo…give it a try and we’ll see after.”
As it turned out, the demo ended up being the real recording, and Celine never sang the song again! Of course, it has since gone on to become her signature song, winning many awards.
