Céline Dion belts out a New Soundtrack Showstopper
Céline, one of my favorite performers ever!!
Seems I have plenty of these, right? Yet she’s at the top.
Deadpool? Umm that’s another story … I’d have to watch the first film again.
Anyway, this is Céline … and anything she does, I love.
Anything she does is magic!
The video is amazing.
That Céline Dion, the queen of lung-busting power ballads, has delivered a My Heart Will Go On for the 21st century is not surprising
The movie soundtrack it’s on may raise an eyebrow or two, though: Deadpool 2.
Yep, you read that right.
“In my career, I have been offered incredible songs and projects,” Dion, 50, wrote in a French-language tweet Thursday.
“Ashes is one of those songs, and Deadpool 2 is out of the ordinary! Prepare to live breathtaking moments with @deadpoolmovie indoors on May 18 …
You’ll die laughing!”
The performance video for Ashes, filmed on an empty stage at what looks like her Vegas residency venue, boasts all the dramatic, drag-queen worthy hand gestures you’d expect from Dion, who’s outfitted in a flowing power-blue gown and backed up by a dancer in full Deadpool regalia and dance shoes.
Deadpool Director Explains How Celine Dion Came On Board For That Insane Music Video
We were meeting with songwriters, we were hearing riffs and ideas, I was giving them briefings on thematics. And we ended up discovering the song ‘Ashes.’ It just sort of fit and ticked all the boxes of what I was trying to do, story-wise. And I was like, man, I really would love to find an artist to record this – a contemporary artist who’s got the chops to make it super emotional.
He went on:
I brought it to Ryan Reynolds and we started to riff on it. And he’s like, ‘You know who we should get? We should approach Céline. She’s an incredible singer, she’s amazing, but she’s also someone who works in the sort of subversive Deadpool universe.’
We had the song that was going to work for the movie, and then Ryan reached out and said, ‘Céline, would you like to record it?’ And then together we came up with this idea of having the music video.
Both Reynolds and Dion are Canadian, so this music video is full of Canadian royalty.
