At the age of 12, Céline Dion with the help of her mother and brother Jacques, wrote her first song “Ce n’était qu’un rêve.” Her mother Thérèse sent a cassette of that song to impresario René Angélil as he had managed the career of the family’s idol, Québécois singer Ginette Reno.
René Angélil invited Celine in his office and handed her a pencil and said, “Here’s your microphone. Now sing as though you were in front of a sold-out audience.” Celine sang and on the spot, René became her biggest fan. This marked the beginning of the most wonderful artist-manager relationship in the history of show business.
Celine Dion sang on Tv for the first time on June 19, 1981 and the Québécois audience immediately adopted her. René Angélil believed so much in her that he mortgaged his house to finance her first album.

Celine later withdrew from live perfomances for 18 months and would later re-appear, completely transformed, more solid than ever and having mastered English. To mark her metamorphosis she released the album ‘Incognito’ which sold over half a million copies. This was the first album produced with her new record label, CBS, which would become Sony Music, the same label as Michael Jackson.
