Miracle: A Celebration of New Life [Bonus DVD]

Miracle: A Celebration of New Life [Bonus DVD]

by Anne Geddes

Overview

Celine Dion has long since cemented her status as a powerhouse pop stylist, but between her many albums and her three-year stint in Vegas, the singer took a break to focus on family -- in January 2001 she gave birth to her son, Rene Charles. Since then, Dion has been vocal about the impact of motherhood on her life, and her devotion to and love for children gave birth to Miracle. This inspiring CD pairs Dion with world-renowned photographer Anne Geddes. Together, they created a visual and musical homage to the bond between mother and baby. The CD's cover art is just a taste of the splendor inside -- the CD includes a 20-page booklet featuring Geddes's stunning photos, along with lyrics to all 13 songs. Dion has always been drawn to songs with a love theme, and here she sets the tone with the disc-opening "Miracle," which allows her maternal instincts play out intensely in such lines as, "You're the reason I was born / Now I finally know for sure." She indulges the emotion further on a rousing interpretation of the classic Brahms Lullaby, delivered in both and English and French. The songstress pours all of her being into every song , as on her soaring, passion-filled rendition of "What a Wonderful World." Lullabies like "My Precious One" and "Baby Close Your Eyes" are cast in soft-hued, piano-led orchestral settings, allowing Dion's dramatic vocals to shine through. On a cover of John Lennon's "Beautiful Boy," a more upbeat track, the diva's voice takes a softer road -- and it works just as beautifully. This breathtaking CD can also be found in a box set version, which includes an expanded, 60-page booklet and a "Making of the CD" DVD. And do not miss the extraordinary coffee table book , which includes the CD and DVD, to see the complete collection of Anne Geddes's own little miracles.
