For rest of the Top 10, click here! Here's an excerpt of an article that was published on Review Journal yesterday: --------------------------------------------------------------------------- A husband and wife who lost two sons in the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center in New York wanted Celine Dion to have a badge that belonged to one of the slain siblings. One was a New York firefighter, the other a New York police officer. In another instance, a woman who survived 9-11 recalled to Dion the horror of seeing one of the hijacked jets flying into her tower. The Caesars Palace headliner has opened her dressing room and her heart to families seeking comfort through her music. Often, with the show two minutes away, she's on the telephone offering words of hope to the dying because, she said, "I have this gift." One man called and asked whether he could record Dion's comforting message to play over and over to his wife. Others have died while she was holding their hand. "I heard their last breath," she said, choking up. "I feel very fortunate. I feel like I'm escorting them to heaven," Dion said during a backstage interview after her show Saturday. Dion starts a holiday break from her show today in Los Angeles, taping an installment of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" for a Friday airing. Tuesday, she's on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Please bear with the poor quality. Celine was great yesterday on Larry King Live. The interview took place on stage at the Colosseum. They talked about Rene's cancer, Vegas show, Miracle project, death of Celine's father, and of course Rene-Charles. I think the most touching part was when Celine talked about the death of her father. How they knew he was battling with cancer, and will leave them one day. But no one could ever prepared for that. She even told Larry how she got the news of her father's death and how difficult it was for her to go on with the show that night. At the end, Larry asked Celine to sing him a few lines of his favourite song "What a wonderful world". Celine then sang it acapella. (Oct 21 2004 News) Reminder: Celine will be on Larry King Live today! "Miracle" debuts at #1 in Canada!!! Way to go Celine! (Oct 20 2004 News) Celine came to Vancouver today as the last stop for the launching promotion event for Air Canada. I took the above pics with a digital camera off a news report that was on TV. Therefore, please bear with the poor quality. As you could see, Celine adds some curls to her hair today, and her uniform is a little bit different from the one she had yesterday. She wears a pants instead of a skirt. First of all, I have a friend who works in Air Canada, and she attended the event. However, she didn't take any pictures for me from the event. But she told me that she got me 2 pics of Celine that has her signature on it (it's not a real autograph, just photo-copy type of autograph). These pics were handed out at the event. I'll put it up as soon as I get it from her. Secondly, I work for a media, and our station did assign a reporter and cameraman to cover the event. If I haven't arranged my morning with other duties, I would've follow my colleagues for sure!!! I hope you could understand how frustrated I was. (SIGH...) Anyway, at least my colleagues did come back with 3 tapes of footages from the event. Due to legal issue, I wouldn't be able to put the videos up here. And I don't have the technical skill/equipment to do it anyway, as you can see the design of this site is sooo tacky and blend. But what I could do is to try my best to report what happened at the event base on what I see from those tapes. There's nothing exclusive or any scoop here, but if you are interested, feel free to read on. I guess I'll just continue to write as a way to release my frustration on how close I could've meet Celine in person, but did not make it. Anyway, here's the report. As usual before the MC and people comes up on stage, they were playing Celine songs at the background. The songs included "Only One Road", and "Des mots qui sonnent". Then a program host of a local AC radio station came out as the MC of the event. She then introduced the CEO of Air-Canada to come out and give his speech. After that, they had about 7 employees came out as model, showing off their new uniforms with "One Heart" being played at the background. After that, the Air-Can choir came out, and started singing TTWII. When they got to the chorus, Celine came out from the back, and of course the crowd cheered. And believe me, the choir sounded much better today! So is Celine. I mean Celine sounded great yesterday, but somehow the music or the choir just didn't blend together and ruine the whole thing. After TTWII, Celine gave out a speech. Telling the crowd how happy she is to be part of the Air-Can family now. She told them how much she enjoyed making the video of "You and I" back in August with the help of many Air-Canada employees, and she's glad that the song has been played all over the world and so as the music video. She also related how she as a performer is somehow similar to flight attendants, cuz they would always have to do a good show, especially since the customers have paid for the tickets. (Tickets for a flight=Tickets for A New Day show) She then told the employees that she's happy to see how they've all fought together through tough times (the airline just came out of creditor protection last month) and everything is now so new and will turn out all good. Then she sang the second song of the day, which was "You and I". Celine didn't sing the first verse of the song, as well as the first verse after chorus. She left those part for the choir, while she sang all of the chorus, and the latter part of the song including all those key-change and money notes. And again, she sounded great with full-strength. Yesterday, she sang the song in sort of a light-way, but not today. After that, they premiere the TV commerical of Air-Canada. They have the song "You and I" being played at the background, with colourful footages of people at different locations including swimming pool, merry-go-round, prairie. Even though Celine doesn't appear in the ad, the ad is pretty nicely done with a sense of freshness and modern. CEO had some more speech, then they ended the event with Celine singing "Love can move mountains" with the choir. And yes again, they sounded great! After this, the media were given the opportunity to go up on the air-craft and see the new design of the interior. No Celine related thing here. After this, a press conference was held for the media. The CEO of Air-Canada, Celine and Rene were there, answering questions. The first question of the press conference was how much Air-Can has paid Celine for this promotional campaign. Celine made a funny look after hearing the question, and she let the CEO to answer this question. As what he said the day before, Air-Canada as any other big corporation, has a huge budget put aside for advertising. He said the amount of money for this campaign is just a tiny portion of the budget, but of course, he wouldn't disclose the exact amount. Another question asked why they chose Celine, but not any other artists. Every time, when a reporter ask this kind of questions that is a little bit embarrassing for Celine, or at least not for her to answer, she would have this funny, obedient look, putting her head down little bit, with eyes wide-open, listening. It's just like how a little girl would look like when she is listening to a conversation between her mother and her principal. Anyway, the CEO said they chose Celine because there isn't any other better choice that he could think of. Not only representing Canada, but also for her personality and artistry of excellence. And she would help the brand going up in the international level too. Another reporter asked Celine and Rene why they've agreed to work on this project, and they worked with Chrysler before, and even have a real Chrysler automobile displayed at the Colosseum. Does that mean they are going to have a real jet displayed at there as well. Rene explained, they are often being approached with many offers throughout the year, like sponsorships, publicity for products, or spokesperson. And 90% of the times, they would refuse the offer. For the ones that they choose, they will have to feel naturally related. In this case, Celine gets to fly a lot of course. But back in 1983, when Celine had her first oversea trip to Paris, she was transported by Air-Canada. Since then in the 80s, they've always travelled around with Air-Canada. So there is a sense of closeness to them. And when Air-Canada explained to them the corporate's future plans, they could feel that the company has the same working attitude as they've always been. That is always be "all the way". Even when they don't have too many people backing them, they would still be so confident, and go strive for it. As regard of whether they are going to have a jet plane displayed at the Colosseum, Rene said so far they are only having Celine as the voice for Air-Canada. They haven't talked about anything else like that. Rene said they would love it, but they just haven't talked into that yet. Celine also said thank to the CEO, cuz when her mom went to Paris with Celine back in 1983, it was also her mom's first plane trip. And whenever her mom feels so happy about something, she always wants to do something as a pay back. So after that trip, her mom has quit smoking and haven't smoke again at all. So Celine said thank you to the CEO for helping her mom to quit smoking. Another reporter asked Celine how she feels about the uniform, she said she feels comfortable, sexy, confident wearing it. Before anyone could do their best, they must feel good about themselves first. It's a thing that come from the inside. If you feel good about yourself, you are confident, you think you look good, then you'll be able to perform better, to provide better service. Therefore, she thinks uniforms is important. And of course, you'll know what to wear, don't need to waste any energy thinking what to wear the next day. At one part of the press conference, a guy presented a cap to Celine and asked if she could wear it. I can't remember what he was representing for and what it says on the cap, but it was a bit awkward for him to do that in the middle of the press conference. Anyway, he went up to the front, and passed the cap to Celine, and while Celine said "Hi" to the guy, you could see Rene laid his eyes on the slogan that was written on the cap. Then Celine double checked with Rene, asking "Should I wear it", and Rene shoke his hand a little bit signaling "it's doesn't matter". Then Celine put the hat on for few seconds, and then passed the hat to the CEO, and the CEO wore it, and they posed for a pic together. That's about all that I could remember about the event. Sorry for the long report. Okay, gotta stop! Hope I'll be able to meet Celine in person one day!!! Reminder: Celine will be on Larry King Live tomorrow! An excerpt from Billboard.com: "Miracle," Celine Dion's lullaby collaboration with photographer Anne Geddes, is The Billboard 200's top debut at No. 4.

On CTV.ca, we could find few video reports there. They are located on the right hand side of the page. Also on there, we could find the interview of Celine that was aired this morning on Canada AM. During the interview, Celine talked about the Miracle project as usual. After that, the reporter asked Celine a pretty political question. The reporter mentioning Jim Carrey recently got dual citizenship, being both Canadian and American citizen, and she asked Celine if she would do the same. Celine told the reporter, it's a very personal decision, but she has chosen to remain a Canadian, and she's proud being a Canadian. To watch this interview, click here. On US's HitsDailyDouble, Celine's Miracle is at #4, selling 102,099 copies in the past week. Please note that Billboard compiles that chart from the sales figures provided by SoundScan US.

(Oct 17 2004 News) In UK, the new album debutes at the National album chart at #5!!! A very nice position considering the limited promotion the album is getting! Source: BBC (Oct 16 2004 News) Celine performed at the Lite FM concert on Friday night. According to fans who have attended the concert, Celine performed "I'm Alive", "If I Could", "Beautiful Boy", "Love Can Move Mountains", and "My Heart Will Go on" at the concert. On Yahoo News, we could find few pics that were taken at the concert. And on Getty Images, we could find few pics of Celine, Rene, and Rene-Charles leaving the hotel in New York. It seems to me that Rene-Charles is pretty tall for a 3 year-old boy. (Oct 15 2004 News) On The Forum, we could watch an interview of Celine that was shown in the UK on GMTV this morning. Celine was on Oprah yesterday, and she was there for the entire show. As usual, Celine was funny and it was a very enjoyable show. Celine and Oprah first chatted about Rene-Charles, how he's doing, and how the family is so in love with the little prince. Celine also told the audience that Rene-Charles speaks a lot of English right now, and he has 3 most favourite lines. They are "I don't believe that", "Oh my goodness", and "No way!" Rene also told the crowd that little Rene loves to go golfing with him, and each time the little Rene hits the ball, he(Rene-Charles) would run and follow the ball. Then at the end of the game, Rene-Charles would always say to his dad, "What a great day they had." Since the theme of the show is "Miracle babies", Oprah invited various parents up on the show, sharing their miracle baby stories. The most touching one was about a lovely couple finding out the husband had cancer, and the chances of recover was so slim. The husband decided to frozen his sperm before taking any chemotherapy. Unfortunately, the husband didn't make through the treatments at the end and passed away. When Oprah got to this part of the story, Celine was so tearful, and Oprah had to padd her on the leg to calm her and told Celine that "it gets better." Then Oprah went on telling the story. The wife wanted to continue their dream of having their baby, so she underwent invitro, and luckily got pregnant after the first trial, with twins! Both Rene and Celine cried in this part of the show, since the story relates so close to their experience. In the latter part of the show, Oprah invited Anne Geddes up on the stage, and told us some funny stories about the photo session, such as Celine having a hard time following Anne's instruction on how to pose, with babies peeing and pooping all over Celine. Celine made some funny sounds when she describing the pee and poop part. Also on the show was David Foster and Linda Thompson, but they weren't interviewed in the show. David accompanied Celine in one of her performance though. Celine sang two songs throughout the show. "A mother's prayer" with David playing the piano, and ended the show with "Miracle". And Celine sang these songs live, and she did them perfectly!!! Now on Oprah's site, we can also watch a video titled "After the show". They taped this segment after the show that was aired on TV. In this 6 mins long segment, Oprah asked Celine to pick out her 3 favourite Celine Dion song. David Foster was also interviewed, telling the audience why he thinks Celine is the best singer to him. And at the end, Oprah wrapped up saying, how Celine is one of the most generous person that she meets in Showbizz, and Celine is "everything she appears to be!" It seems Oprah is pretty well, one of the best promotion that anyone could get. On Wednesday, "Miracle" album was at around #30 on Amazon.com's top selling CD chart. After yesterday's appearance, the album is at #1 spot! Don't forget that on this Sunday (Oct 17th), there will be a story on Celine on "CBS News Sunday Morning."
