At one point in time, the music industry was all about vocal prowess with live performances bearing the most important factor for commercial success so much so that a particular generation not too long ago used to be in love with the likes of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Gloria Esterfan, Aretha Franklin and Celine Dion. The latter was actually a contestant in the 1988 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest having managed to seal victory with just one point over the United Kingdom with the song Go following a flawless rendition of the track Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi which she performed for the small nation of Switzerland after going through a national final which was also very close-knit. The Canadian born performer has achieved success all over the globe but following the release of her English and French albums in 2007, she took a break from recording signing a Las Vegas Residency contract before having to stop for a vocal surgery which turned out to be a huge success.

Nevertheless, she has returned and already released her first comeback album in French bearing the title Sans Attendre. It is intriguing to note that despite the mixed reviews from the critics, the crowd do not seem to really matter going to buy the album as quickly as possible and vaulting it up to number #1 in France, Belgium and Canada whilst managing also number #2 in Switzerland. Other top twenty positions have also been attained in The Netherlands, Greece and Hungary where her upcoming English album Water and a Flame is definitely set to perform better due to the language issue. A french album does not really succeed outside the borders of non-French speaking countries but Celine Dion is always one to reverse the trend it seems. This has to be one of her most personal albums thus far and the editorial team are glad to see it succeed and that real music triumphs over the fresh material that is being produced by the modern generation of artist. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more news about former winners in due course.
