Just when you thought that Celine Dion would settle for performing every night at the Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, she comes back to the recording scene with her new album titled Taking Chances. The deluxe edition CD/DVD was launched last November 8 during a Vegas-inspired event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas. Those who attended the media launch were treated to a behind-the-scenes video of the Grammy-winning artist while recording her latest album.
After performing the musical extravaganza A New Day for the past five years in a 4,000-seat stadium in Las Vegas, Celine is literally taking chances by setting out on a bold new direction with her latest album. Taking Chances is perhaps the most personal and revelatory collection of songs and performances in her colorful career.
The French-Canadian singer includes tracks such as the blues-flavored song "That's Just The Woman In Me," the Middle Eastern-inspired song "Eyes On Me," her cover of the heart "Alone," and the carrier single "Taking Chances."
Taking Chances features Celine in collaboration with contemporary hit songwriters like Linda Perry, former Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody, singer Ne-Yo, and the Eurythmics's Dave Stewart. The 16-track album was recorded over a three-week period in July 2007 at the Palm Studios in Las Vegas.
Released by Sony BMG, Taking Chances is now available in record stores nationwide.
