You've probably heard Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" about a zillion times. We don't blame you if you're a little tired of the Titanic ballad. Still, how well do you really know the Grammy-winning artist behind the hit song?Celine Dion initially loathed "My Heart Will Go On," which went on to become her biggest hit, winning an Oscar and several Grammys for the Titanic soundtrack. Dion recalled in an interview with Billboard:"I was in a suite with a piano at Caesars Palace. [Songwriter James Horner] started to play the song. With all the respect that I have for James… he is not the greatest singer." Her husband, Rene Angelil, suggested Dion make a demo, but she wasn't sold on that idea. She'd recently produced two successful tunes for movie soundtracks, "Because You Loved Me" and "Beauty and the Beast", and didn't want to push her luck.Angelil convinced Dion to record the demo anyway, and that was that, literally. Dion admitted that she does tire of performing the tune, but that, quote, "it's a good problem to have," particularly when she sees emotional faces in the audience.
