    TORONTO, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - On Tuesday, October 28th, SONY BMG Music
(Canada) Inc. will release two special edition CDs featuring career-spanning
repertoire from Celine Dion, the biggest selling female artist of all time. My
Love Essential Collection is a single disc featuring 17 songs, consisting of
Celine's biggest hits...songs such as the international chart-topper "All By
Myself" (her unforgettable interpretation of the groundbreaking Eric Carmen
power ballad), "Where Does My Heart Beat Now" (Celine's first English-language
single), her landmark 1996 Olympic Ceremonies performance of "Power of the
Dream," the brand-new never-released "There Comes A Time," and from her Taking
Chances Tour a live recording of the lead track "My Love". This lead track, a
semi-autobiographic song recently written for Celine by Linda Perry (Christina
Aguilera, Dixie Chicks, Gwen Stefani) has become a show-stopper every night
during Celine's sold-out World Tour, which is currently in flight across North
America. My Love impacts at radio on September 22nd.
    The two-disc edition, entitled My Love Ultimate Essential Collection, is
a 26 song set, that has been further expanded to include rarities like "(You
Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman," "The Prayer" (a duet with Andrea
Bocelli), "Tell Him" (a duet with Barbra Streisand), "I Knew I Loved You,"
"Dance With My Father," and "Pour que tu m'aimes encore" (the biggest song of
Celine's French career).
    Celine's "My Love..." anthologies cover virtually every single aspect of
her extraordinary career, including fan favorites, a definitive assemblage of
chart-topping international successes, as well as new and unreleased
recordings culled from once-in-a-lifetime experiences that Celine has
participated in over the years.

    Celine Dion is the biggest-selling Female Artist of All Time, with
worldwide album sales of over 200 million. Her RIAA Diamond Award albums
"Falling Into You" and "Let's Talk About Love" have each sold over 30 million
worldwide. She has five Grammys - Best Pop Vocal Performance ("Beauty and the
Beast"); Album of the Year & Best Pop Album ("Falling Into You"); Record of
the Year & Best Female Pop Vocal Performance ("My Heart Will Go On") and two
Best Song Oscars ("Beauty and the Beast" & "My Heart Will Go On"). Over
3 million people saw her in "A New Day" in Las Vegas, during its
record-breaking five year run of sold-out shows. Following the Las Vegas
engagement, Celine released her Taking Chances CD, which went top 5 in every
major market around the world, and launched her first Worldwide Concert tour
in over nine years. The tour has been playing to sold-out Stadiums and arenas
since it debuted in South Africa on Valentines Day 2008, and once completed it
will have crossed five continents, 24 countries, and 95 cities, en route to
playing for an audience of over 3 million people.
    Currently the tour is in full swing throughout North America, stopping in
every major city in the US and Canada, playing to sold-out arenas every night.
"This tour has been an incredible journey for me, says Celine. First of all,
it's given Rene and I a chance to travel the world with our 7 1/2 year old
son, and as well, we've had my mother who is 81 years old traveling with
us...so it's been a wonderful family experience, and I feel really privileged.
At the same time, it's been so rewarding for me to reach out to my fans and
perform many of the songs that they have supported me on for so many years. We
do some new songs, of course, but we make sure to do the long-time favorites
as well."
