Celine Dion Says She Will Never Forget Singing With Aretha Franklin
GRAMMY winner Celine Dion has had plenty of high points in her career, and the "VH1 Divas" performance she shared with fellow GRAMMY-winning vocal powerhouse Aretha Franklin in 1998 is one she'll especially treasure.
Looking back on that moment, one she would "never forget," Dion said she had an easy decision to make when asked to be a part of the GRAMMY tribute to the late legend. She added her voice to the powerful evening that was "Aretha! A GRAMMY Celebration For The Queen Of Soul," singing "A Change Is Gonna Come."
Backstage at the event, which will air on CBS in full this Sunday, March 10, Dion also reflected on the power that Aretha has had on her and many other singers and music fans.
"Whoever believes that music comes from the soul has a part of her," she emphasized. "We've been singing her, we've been feeling her."
"She has been showing us, all of us, how things are being done and no one will ever be doing that again," Dion finished.
Don't forget to catch "Aretha! A GRAMMY Celebration For The Queen Of Soul" on Sun., March 10 at 9 p.m. EST / 8 p.m. CT on CBS.
