If like 10 years ago you had told me that some Canadian chick who thumps her chest, kicks her leg and marries her childhood manager would one day become a best-selling artist, I’d call you a liar and divorce you as a friend. That would all be in haste though, because indeed that Canadian, chest thumping, leg kicking, rocking chair robbing singer has risen to the top of her game. I assume it’s because she’s not only talented as hell, but has one sweet heart.
This past week, Celine Dion spent some quality time with 7-year-old son Rene, and 700-year-old husband Rene (not a typo), visiting an African’s Children Feeding Scheme center in Soweto, South Africa.
The ACFS helps to provide meals for poor, orphaned and abandoned kids living throughout South Africa, and Celine did her part by rolling up her sleeves (do Canadians wear sleeves? I joke) and dishing up some hot chow. The town thanked Celine for her visit with many happy faces and “traditional Zulu beadwork” (as opposed to non-traditional Zulu beadwork, I guess).
Ps-Did you know that Celine is the highest-selling female artist in South Africa? That’s crazy to me. I mean, even if you gave me a multiple choice test and the other possibilities were like Marilyn Manson, Fergie and Heidi Montag, I still wouldn’t have picked her…but I’m a poor test taker. Anyway, thanks Celine for pounding that chest and feeding the world one high note at a time.
