We know Céline Dion by her amazing voice singing “My Heart Will Go On” in the movie Titanic. But did you know she will now put her voice into acting?
Céline Dion joined Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Sam Heughan in Sony’s Screen Gems romantic drama “Text for You.” The movie is an English language remake of the German film SMS Fur Dich, based on Sofie Cramer’s novel. The film is about a woman who sends romantic text to her dead fiancé’s phone. Turns out the fiancé’s number was reassigned to a man going through a similar heartbreak. They end up meeting each other and have a connection but understandably can’t put the past behind them.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Sam Heughan will be playing the main characters. Chopra Jonas as the grieving widow who lost her fiancé and Heughan as the man with the number.
Although it’s not confirmed what role Dion will play it must be hard for her after losing her late husband René Angélil to cancer in 2016. Does the romantic drama mean that Dion is giving love a second chance?
Dion shares three children with Angélil, René Charles, 19 years old, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 10 years old. She recently celebrated her twins Nelson’s and Eddy’s birthday along with her Angélil in spirit. Dion’s Instagram post had a sweet and touching message to her twins knowing Angélil still looks after them.
“Nelson and Eddy, you have been bringing so much joy, love and laughter into our lives every single day for the past 10 years. You make me, your big brother and your Dad, who is for sure watching over you, so very proud. Happy birthday my beautiful boys! We love you so very much… – Mom, RC and Dad xx… 🐾”
Nelson et Eddy, vous apportez tellement de joie, d’amour et de rires dans nos vies à chaque jour depuis 10 ans. Bonne fête mes amours! On vous adore… Happy birthday my beautiful boys! We love you so very much… – Maman, RC et Papa xx… 🐾https://t.co/CnHuJ8iu4M pic.twitter.com/HnJxztElvW

Dion will not only be acting but will add some pizzazz to the love story with her music. She is a 52 year old Canadian woman who has sold more than 220 million albums worldwide. As of right now, Dion is the second best selling female artist. Dion’s music has been part of movie soundtracks such as Titanic, Beauty and the Beast, and Deadpool 2. She knows how to touch your heart and get you emotional simply with her music and her voice. Fans are wondering if her acting will be as speechless as her music. Most of them know it will get emotional through out the movie especially with Dion’s music.
What a phenomenal cast for this movie & getting the legendary music icon Celine Dion is so perfect for this movie & her songs being a part of this very emotional story like how they incorporated My Heart Will Go On In Titanic & Ashes In Deadpool 2.

Heughan told ET Canada he’s a big fan of Celine Dion… doesn’t he have taste. “A music icon, as well as Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who will be terrific in this movie. I feel incredibly fortunate to be working alongside both of them and can’t wait for everyone to see this heartwarming movie,” Heughan added.

Seem like most people aren’t familiar with Heughan. Heughan is a movie star and the lead actor for a popular tv show Outlander. Others do recognize him from other shows and movies he’s been in and oh boy aren’t we happy.
Be well and happy ☺
Gee, Sam's going to be in Mr. Malcom's List, ClanLands, SAS, and now new movie with Celine Dion – it's a Samapalooza! pic.twitter.com/KyQy5JxZk9
