The American magazine had created controversy, at the beginning of the year, by failing to include the interpreter of my heart Will Go On in his ranking of the greatest singers, pushing some fans of the Quebecois to show their dissatisfaction as far as New York.

The publication also seems to be trying to avoid these outbursts of disgruntled fans in the preamble to this new list, published on the occasion of Canada Day.

“Are all the important Canadian musicians there? No. But the 50 that we love the most are there, ”says the American magazine.

THE rolling stone also takes advantage of his introduction to present his “sincere and respectful condolences” to fans of various artists excluded from the charts, citing in passing the Quebec formations Voivod and Bran Van 3000.

Behind Alanis Morissette

Celine Dion is thus enthroned in 10e position, just behind Shania Twain, The Weeknd and Alanis Morissette, respectively placed 7e at 9 o’clocke rank.

“Few artists are as beloved by Canadians as Celine Dion, and for good reason: her story (the youngest of a working-class family in a small Quebec village who became an international superstar) is every pop star’s dream, and the respect and the admiration the world has for him makes Canadians proud.

  • Listen to the cultural component of Anaïs Guertin-Lacroix broadcast live every day at 3:30 p.m. on Jean-François Baril’s program via QUB-radio :

“His enormous career is undeniable, including number 1 songs, countless awards and a titanic moment. Her voice is unmistakable, a roaring tour de force, and she has the stage presence to go along with it. Still, Celine Dion will say her greatest accomplishment was making her family – and her country – proud. And for that, our love for Celine Dion will be eternal, ”continues the American magazine.

Note that Celine Dion is the only singer in the French-speaking repertoire to appear on this list.
