Celine Dion Is 55

Legendary singer Céline Dion marks her 55th birthday today, celebrating not only the day the superstar was born, but an incredible musical career that has spanned more than 40 years.

She's amassed an array of awards along the way, while also meeting the love of her life René Angélil, who began as her manager before becoming her husband. 

The phenomenal international success that Dion has achieved once seemed like an impossible dream for a two-year-old girl living in a tiny Canadian town on the outskirts of Montréal... but yet her sheer grit and determination saw her defeat the odds to achieve what many never will.
