Is Celine Dion going to retire? That is the question on everyone’s mind around the world!
The husband of Celine Dion René Charles died from throat cancer and then suddenly after, just 2 days apart, her brother Daniel Dion also died of cancer. It has shaken the family to the core. Now many people are speculating if Celine Dion is going to drop the mic and bow out from the music business.
Most of Celine Dion’s catalogue was based around emotion and love. So it will be hard to imagine Celine Dion belting out all her love songs every night. All the fans would be picturing her husband, brother and her week of suffering.
It has been well publicised that Celine Dion spent most of her money on designer shoes. Yes, she loves shoes and that was her way of relaxing and splashing her many millions. Then on the other hand – her late husband René Charles was a professional gambler.
There is speculation to whether René Charles spent all of Celine Dion’s money in the run up to his death from cancer. René Charles loved to go around casinos and gamble; it was in his blood from an early age. If he wasn’t a professional gambler then Celine Dion wouldn’t have a career as that’s how she got her first record deal.
I mean let’s drop the truth on the floor and be real here; the majority of her music is depressing and about heartache. People listen to feel sad and very few of her tracks are “feel good” tracks you listen to lift your mood up.
“One Heart” and “A New Day Has Come” are her only real feel good albums – if we’re being honest.
Back to the burning question…will Celine Dion retire? The star made all her money in the 90s and secured her career icon status with the release of one of biggest song of the 90s…‘My Heart Will Go On’.
Yet Celine Dion went onto Las Vegas and has spent the better part of her career performing every night for a sold out audience. Up until now we’ve wondered why Celine Dion kept performing and performing…one has to ask if it was because they have no money left?
Celine Dion put her Florida mansion on the market for nearly 100 million a few years ago. That Florida mansion was the go to for the entire family, including her late husband René Charles.
Will Celine Dion retire? Only time will tell what the singer will choose to do. A lot of questions remain; will we ever know the answers to them all?
It would be wrong to expect Celine Dion to go out on stage every night and perform. So if Celine Dion wants to retire, that is her business.
