Yes she was! By the age of 15 Celine Dion was already a superstar in her home province of Quebec, Canada and in various parts of Europe. She was on the cusp of expanding that status globally and would go to become the the best-selling Canadian artist of all time with record sales of more than 200 million copies worldwide.
But here is 15 year old Celine, back in 1983, giving her her first English-language interview to the CBC television network. Enjoy!
You can listen to music from the young Celine and other artists from the 80s on Dusty Discs Radio.
