And now for ... Quebec's most-famous export. (drum-roll, please) Celine Dion!

If any of you are in Canada, I'm sure you've seen the news, or read the papers to see that "Queen Celine" is now singing the praises of our national airline, Air Canada. http://www.canada.com/maritimes/news/story.html?id=7b541028-5c92-4f1e-a6d5-e6ed06425484

Oy-vey! Laughing She was at Vancouver International Airport yesterday, meeting with Air Canada employees. I guess she looked good in the airline's sharp new uniform.

I think she has a great voice, but even as a proud Canadian, she's a little ... ahem ... over-done. (especially with her new Anne Geddes book/cd deal) Enough already, Celine! As reported on this morning's Vancouver news, one unnamed Air Canada employee commented that they personally were not a fan, stating that her singing "Sounds like two porqupines making love on a chalkboard". Laughing Great metaphor, if I do say so myself.

A powerful voice, buy whose voice this girlie has been sick-of for YEARS! I cannot watch her sing on t.v., etc. She looks like she has been sucking on lemons. Have you ever noticed that she seems to choose songs in which she can either:

a) stretch out her arms.
b) thump on her chest.

Right at the crescendo of a song, there's usually a "whump!", beating on her breast. (I do a great impersonation of this, by the way Wink ) Her arm choreographer needs to come up with something new, I think.

Yes, dear Celine has been on over-kill in the past several years. For a while there, I was expecting to see her on variety shows, a la American-style schtick like Lawrence Welk or Ed Sullivan. "And now, ladies & gentlemen, here's Celine Dion, and her fabulous ... accordian!" Rolling Eyes

`Glad to see, however, in today's news that Celine has added some length back to that
whateverthehellthatwas short, bleached-out, butch-thing she was sporting for her Vegas act. Not her best look, I'm afraid.

what annoys me most is the way singers like her chew the notes, why sing one when you can run up and down the scales for five minutes? Ms Carey does that alot.

Don't get me wrong they are talented singers, I just don't like this particular style, I know it was done in classical music - I mean it's not as if these great composers weren't good enough, they just needed some showoff singer to go twiddle over their masterpiece. Rolling Eyes

Sing what's written, you're not better than Mozart or Rossini Cool

Okay, I see what you mean. It is the same phenomenon that irks me when watching American or Canadian Idol: the over-signing, where the singer sings the words of the song and also sings the music, the background music and the chorus sounds. It is annoying!
But my point was: don't single out Celine Dion for that. It is quite widespread.
When Celine Dion sings in French, she doesn't overdo it. Her latest album in French is very enjoyable for that reason.

I wasn't singling her out, I did mention the Carey - of someone wants to complain about her I'm right there Cool
I guess it has something to do with the growth of gospel type singing (or shouting) where you push the chest voice as high as you can. I doubt we'll see any non-shouters on the pop idol type shows.

I hate that kind of singing and blame whitney huston. We call it 'mr grimsdale' singing in our house. Fans of norman wisdom may get the allusion Laughing

ITA about Celine Dion, over exposed to say the least. I can't stand her singing either but in French, she sounds normal, what's up with that!? I bet you do feel better Casper's Mum. Smile

I used to love Celine Dion, I have a lot of her CDs but when I started listening to Sarah Brightman, my taste in music changed forever.

I remember when she got married and her bizarro wedding photos were splashed all over the place.... VERY VERY weird indeed.

She has a BIG voice, but all that phony vibrato and warbling.... Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
