Celine Dion – Power of the Dream

lyrics:

Deep within each heart
There lies a magic spark
That lights the fire of our imagination
And since the dawn of man
The strength of just ‘I can’
Has brought together people of all nations

There’s nothin’ ordinary in the living of each day
There’s a special part everyone of us will play

[Chorus:]
Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream

As the world gives us it’s best
To stand apart from all the rest
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

Your mind will take you far
the rest is just your heart
you’ll find your fate is all your own creation
And every boy and girl as they come into this world
Bring the gift of hope and inspiration

[Chorus]

The world unites in hope and peace
We pray that it will always be
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

There’s so much strength in all of us
Every woman,child,and man
It’s the moment that you think you can’t
you’ll discover that you can

[Chorus 2x]

[Background:]
The power of the dream
Faith in things unseen
Courage to embrace your fears
No matter where you are
To reach for your own star

To realize the power of the dream
To realize the power of the dream…..
About Celine Dion:

Céline Marie Claudette Dion, was born in 1968, the youngest of 14 children. Early in childhood, she sang with her siblings in a small club owned by her parents. From these early experiences, Celine Dion gained the know-how to performing live. At the age of 12, Dion composed a song in her native French and sent it to a record company, where it garnered the attention of René Angélil, a respected manager and her future husband. Angélil believed in Céline so much that he actually mortgaged his house in order to finance her debut album. Already very popular and successful internationally, Céline Dion burst onto the U.S. stage when she recorded the theme song to Disney’s hit Beauty and the Beast (1991). In 1990 she released the English-language album Unison, establishing herself as a viable pop artist in North America and other English-speaking areas of the world. Céline Dion‘s music has been influenced by genres ranging from rock and R&B to gospel and classical. Her main singing languages are French and English, but she also sings in Spanish, Italian, German, Latin, Japanese and Mandarine Chinese. While her releases have often received mixed critical reception, she is renowned for her technically skilled and powerful vocals.
