The Best of Celine Dion & David Foster – 2013

The Best of Celine Dion & David Foster is a compilation album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released by Sony Music Entertainment in selected Asian countries on 19 October 2012. It includes songs produced by Grammy Award-winning musician, record producer and songwriter, David Foster.

This Asia exclusive release celebrates twenty years of partnership between Celine Dion and David Foster. It includes hits like “Because You Loved Me,” “The Power of Love,” “All by Myself,” “Tell Him” (duet with Barbra Streisand) and “To Love You More,” and previously unreleased duet with Elvis Presley on “If I Can Dream.” The latter track was recorded for Idol Gives Back and Dion performed it with Presley (together on stage with use of rotoscoping) on American Idol on 25 April 2007. The Best of Celine Dion & David Foster also contains duets with Andrea Bocelli, Frank Sinatra, Luciano Pavarotti and Clive Griffin. Three songs included here were featured in films: “Because You Loved Me” in Up Close & Personal, “When I Fall in Love” in Sleepless in Seattle and “The Prayer” in Quest for Camelot. However, the album does not include any song from Unison (1990), where Foster produced five tracks. The cover photo was taken from an exclusive session with Dion and Foster at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in October 2005, made by photographer Jerry Metellus for the NUVO magazine.
