Subscribe to Celine Dion alerts

Celine Dion has paid tribute to late entertainer DANNY GANS, calling the Las Vegas showman "the best in his field".
Gans died suddenly at his home in Sin City on Friday morning (01May09) and Dion is still reeling from the news her pal has passed away.
She says, "I'm very, very sad, and completely shocked to hear the news about Danny. (My husband) Rene and I have loved him very much since the first time we saw him and met him at the Rio (casino) in 1997.
"Not only was he the best in his field, but he was such a kind and loving person.
"About a month before my last show at Caesars Palace, Danny and his wife Julie, and their daughters came to see us. We talked and laughed for over an hour. I can't believe he's not with us anymore, and our heart goes out to his family. I wish them God's strength."
Meanwhile, Donny Osmond, whose Vegas show was produced by Gans, admits he's struggling to come to terms with the shock news.
He says, "I would call him for advice and direction regarding our show. We've lost an amazing entertainer. His friendship, charisma and talent will be greatly missed."
