The wait is finally over for the fans of pop diva Celine Dion, who is holding three concerts at the Taipei Arena during her first visit to Taiwan. At her first concert last night, Celine opened the show with her passionate ballad, “The Power of Love.” She sang almost 20 classic hits, winning over the over 10,000 Taiwanese fans with her dazzling style and stage charisma.

Celine surged to international fame with her megahit “My Heart Will Go On,” the theme song from the 1997 blockbuster movie “Titanic.” With over 250 million copies of her records sold in a career spanning over three decades, the Canadian superstar is one of the most celebrated singers in the world.

Her Asian concert tour started off last month in Tokyo, followed by Macau, Singapore, Jakarta, Taipei, Manila, and Bangkok, before moving on to several cities in Australia and New Zealand next month.
