Celine Dion's Las Vegas residency gives her work-life balance

13 November 2013 / 2 years 11 months ago

Celine Dion believes she has a "perfect" work and life balance.

The 45-year-old singer - who has sons Rene-Charles, 13, and three-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, with husband Rene Angelil - has had a residency in Las Vegas since February 2011 and plans to continue her shows for as long as possible as they mean she can give her boys a stable home life.

Celine - who also had a regular show in the city between 2003 and 2007 - said: "I don't know how long, but I'm going to be there. For a while ... I'm enjoying myself tremendously. I have this spectacular show, it's not often I get to be on stage with a 31 piece orchestra, and I'm home every night, I'm raising my children which is a choice I want to do and I'm enjoying it so much. I think I have the best of both worlds.

"I can still be passionate about what I do and I love still very much to sing, but at the same time I just don't want to have kids and not be taking care of them, so right now I feel like it's a perfect balance."

The 'Think Twice' hitmaker is releasing her first English language album, 'Loved Me Back To Life', for six years and can't believe how quickly time has gone by.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2, she added: "I've been quite busy for six years. As you know, time flies amazingly fast. I have been doing lots of shows in Vegas, Caesars Palace. I started a new show almost three years ago now and I did a French album and I had two more children, so six years passed and here I am with a new English album."
