Olympic Games (USA)
Friday, July 19, 1996
On July 19, 1996, the event which doubtless crowned Céline's career is her participation in the Opening ceremonies of the 100th Olympic Games in Atlanta. In front of more than 3.5 billion televiewers, Céline performs the hymn of the opening ceremonies title The power of the dream. This eminent honoring to the athletes, written by David Foster, Kenny "Babyface" Edmond and Linda Thompson, quickly becomes the theme song of the Games.
