Truly, one of the greatest singers of our time, hangs up her Vegas hat tonight. From watching her in 1994 at the Jackson Family Honors belting out “The Power of Love” ...when all of us took notice and said “Who is that lady with the short hair? What is that song?” To then getting to watch “A New Day” debut in 2003. Seeing her in Paris on the honeymoon with @jay _klay in 2017 and going tonight to celebrate her amazing 16 year run, we’ll truly miss you @celinedion
In 1994, at Clark High School, we all had the privilege of singing backup to the Jackson’s as we were part of the Jackson Family Honors, where for most of us, this was the first time we laid eyes and set ears on Celine.
We all cried at least once, when we first heard “My Heart will Go On” and then it went on...as Titanic made film history.
In 2003, I was lucky enough to meet Jennifer Dunne and Kris Lingle who became lifelong friends. With my meager gift basket company at the time, I was able to give a gift basket to the cast and crew of the special Dragone created “A New Day” Celine show that premiered at the Colosseum @caesarsentertainment ...this show began it all!
Being allowed backstage once to film for a @bravotv documentary on Vegas entertainment, I got to meet Celine & her late husband René, I was beyond thrilled. What a charismatic man, he was.
Fast forward to numerous times in the car over the years with @simpleedalton belting out “River Deep, Mountain High” to grabbing seats when we could at her more recent shows.
In 2017 I married @jay _klay and we spent our July in Paris and took our niece Gabby to see Celine in Paris. As she sang au Francais, everyone seemed to sing along in beautiful fashion. Music is truly universal.
And tonight, we are grateful to attend the final show. Celine is nothing short of consistent in her talent, her beauty and her charm. We will be watching, crying and sharing our memories collectively as we applaud what has changed the Las Vegas entertainment landscape forever. Our hearts will go on singing Celine! —————————————————
