Singer Celine Dion and photographer Anne Geddes will combine their gifts to create a combination of music and images, the Miracle project, to be released by Epic Records on October 12, 2004.
This powerful collection of love songs and lullabies is complemented by stunning and tender images, including some of Celine herself with the babies. Both the music and the photography are meant to honor the unbreakable bond of love that exists between a mother and her baby. This outstanding body of work will be available as three distinctive product releases: a beautiful coffee table book with CD, a special edition DVD and book combo, and a CD with booklet.
Celine notes, "I've always been a huge fan of Anne Geddes. Long before I became a mother, I admired and appreciated the beautiful way she photographs babies. It's wonderful to be able to work with her on this very special project which celebrates children."
Celine Dion has won five U.S. Grammy Awards, 20 Juno and 39 Felix Awards in Canada, seven World Music Awards in Europe, and many other awards in Asia and Africa. Celine, who is signed to Sony music, is considered the premier contemporary pop vocalist on the world stage with record sales exceeding 160 million copies around the globe.
