Celine Dion

Born in 1968 in Quebec, Celine Dion Became a singer rather early. She used to sing at her family’s piano bar before she released her first album at the age of thirteen. After that, she went on to win the 1988 Eurovision Song Competition. By the time 1990 came around, she had sold millions of copies of her album Unison. The album also won numerous awards and topped the charts in various places, from Canada to Norway. For a 22-year-old singer, this was an amazing feat. At this point, her career was just beginning.

The 1990s

In the 1990s, Celine’s career truly bloomed. She worked with Peabo Bryson on the theme song for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast which went on to win an Academy Award for Best Song. Continuing to create music, Celine’s The Color of My Love became a hit album as well in 1993, outselling her first album.

Falling Into You

While her first two albums were a massive success, it wasn’t until 1996 that her album Falling Into You became her most successful album of the decade. This album won her the Grammy for Album of the Year. Not only that, but it also became a certified diamond album in the US, as well as her following album. Her French album D’eux that was released in 1995 also became the best-selling French album of all time. It’s a serious accomplishment to have hit albums in two different languages.

Let’s Talk About Love

As her career was gaining more and more momentum, Celine’s 1997 album Let’s Talk About Love was a smash hit. Her most iconic song, “My Heart Will Go On”, appeared on it. Of course, you can recognize the song from the blockbuster movie Titanic. So aside from her album being a major success, her song appeared in one of the highest grossing movies of all-time.

Much-Deserved Break

After the success of “My Heart Will Go On”, Celine took a much-needed break. After dominating the 1990s music scene, she would return after 2000 refreshed and ready to sing again. She later released a new album titled A New Day Has Come which focused on motherhood. Other albums she released in the 2000s are One Heart (2003), Miracle (2004), and Taking Chances (2007). Even with her already incredible success in the music industry, she showed no signs of slowing down.

Major Success

As was obvious from her albums, countless awards, and lengthy concert runs in Las Vegas, Celine was a celebrity that had made it in the music industry. Throughout her career, she won five Grammys and sold over 220 million records. With all her success, Celine was worth around $400 million. So, we’re starting to see how she was able to build herself a mansion with a private water park.

Jupiter Island

Spending $7 million with her husband René Angélil on a spot on Jupiter Island, this was Celine’s first major expense. A couple of years later the plot of land was transformed into the mansion and water park it is today. Sadly, since Celine had such a busy lifestyle and her husband’s health was deteriorating, the water park wasn’t used all that much. It’s rather unfortunate to have such an inviting home and not use it.

Tragedy

Tragedy struck when Celine’s husband passed away from cancer in 2016. They were married since 1994 and met back in 1980. Even though they had a significant age gap, they truly loved each other and their marriage lasted to the very end. In 2001, they had their first child, René-Charles Angéli, on January 25th. In 2010, they had twin boys named Eddy and Nelson, after songwriter Eddy Marnay and South African President Nelson Mandela.

For Sale

Once Angélil found out he had cancer back in 2013, he and Celine made the decision to sell their mansion. Given the exclusive location, the house was quite the item to put on the market. Aside from the pools and a lazy river, the mansion was also equipped with its own movie theater and a 100-yard beach. It was the perfect vacation home.

Just Keep Swimming

Winding through the property is a lazy river, making for a great place to swim along the green grass. Even though there are pools as well, one may prefer to swim along a path rather than laps. Either way, we’re sure whoever purchased the property is excited to make good use of it!

Stairway To Heaven

Here there is a stunning white structure perched in the grass and surrounded by palm trees. Not only is it large, but it has staircases leading up to a windowed room. We bet the view from up there is spectacular.

Private Water Park

Of course, the best part of the entire estate is none other than the private water park. It has two water slides, several water cannons, and a tree house. It truly sounds like a paradise of sorts. The only problem at the time was finding a buyer, and it turned out to be quite the challenge.

The Price

Let’s talk about the price. At first, the estate was priced at $72.5 million in 2013. As it turns out, the price was rather steep for the market. After three years, the price was lowered to $44.5 million. However, there were still no buyers. By 2017, the price was yet again lowered.

Final Sale

At last, in 2018, after years of attempting to sell the wonderous estate on Jupiter Island, it was sold for $28 million. We don’t know who bought the place since the realty company was not at liberty to say. We’re sure they were all pleased to finally sell the estate, despite the dramatic price drop.

Famous Neighbors

Not only is this estate on a stunning Island, but it’s located near some rather famous plots purchased by other celebrities. Burt Reynolds and former president George H.W. Bush, Tiger Woods, Gary Player, and Greg Norman are known to have properties there as well.

No Crowds

One thing you don’t need to worry about if you happen to live on Jupiter Island is having too many people around. The island only has a population of 850 people. Seeing as the number is so low, the area is quite expensive to live in. Plots or houses can range anywhere from single to double-digit millions.

More Real Estate

Believe it or not, this property isn’t the only one Celine has. Aside from selling this estate, Celine put up her Parisian home for sale. The Vila Montmorency home went up for $9.3 million back in 2017. While it might not be as extravagant as her Jupiter Island home, but it is still a stunning place.

Paris

Located in the 16th district of France’s capital, the house was built in the 1990s in a gated community. Funny enough, Celine and her husband bought this house around the same time they bought the Jupiter Island plot.

Canada Real Estate

In addition to the two properties Celine had sold, there was yet another one. In 2016, she sold a property in Quebec for $25.5 million. An expansive French 24,000 square feet house, it was placed on a 20-acre plot right near the Montreal River on a private island. The house had six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a wine cellar, and a library. Celine clearly likes to go all-out with her properties!

Keep Going

It doesn’t look like Celine plans on stopping to make music anytime soon. She recently started performing music for movies again. She had a music video alongside Marvel superhero Deadpool for the release of Deadpool 2. The music is pretty good and her performance alongside Deadpool in the music video is hilarious. The music video is definitely a memorable one!

Back On The Road Again

Aside from making new music for films, Celine is hitting the road again with a new tour across the Asian-Pacific. In addition, she’s in the process of releasing a brand new album and she’s making a return to Las Vegas to perform more shows. Clearly, she isn’t done with her music career, even after the tragic death of her husband and the sales of her properties.
