Celine Dion Coming to Manila

My heart stopped for a second when I saw this on my Facebook feed.


Yeah, I’m a huge fan since college. I love a lot of her songs although I admit that for a time, I grew tired of her because of the whole “My Heart Will Go On” super-mega-hype.

If this generation’s national anthem is “Let It Go,” “My Heart Will Go On” was my generation’s.

But I love, love, love Celine Dion and I’m thrilled that she’s finally coming to Manila. Long overdue na yun, ah. * thought bubble * Sana next time si Madonna na.

There are a lot of songs of Celine Dion that I love but two really have a special place in my heart.

I first heard this in college. Beautiful lyrics, melody and MTV. Plus, my dad loved this song. πŸ™‚ But “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” reminds me a lot of someone. And for me, this line captured what we had back then.

There were those empty threats and hollow lies
And whenever you tried to hurt me
I just hurt you even worse
And so much deeper

Intense?! I was a drama kid in college. πŸ˜€

“Because You Loved Me” is from the soundtrack of the movie “Up Close and Personal,” which starred Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert Redford. I never saw the movie because I know someone died. I don’t like sad endings.

But I loved this song because of how beautiful the words are. This is my song to God. His Unconditional Love is what made me who I am and who I will be. He is my everything. I am everything I am because He loved me.

I loved this song so much that I included this on the dedication page of my thesis. πŸ™‚

I’m so excited to watch Celine Dion in person. Ninenerbyos lang ako sa ticket price but this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. πŸ™‚
