Every aspiring singer has an artist that they always look up to.

Young performers who dream of making it big as professional artists in the music industry always start by idolizing someone who is already at the place where they want to be.

There is always one person that you look up to, someone that inspires you and motivates you to work harder for your dream.

One of the most celebrated divas since the 1980s is none other than Celine Dion.

Originally from Charlemagne, Quebec, Celine is the youngest of 14 children.

Her mother was a homemaker who also became a television personality and her father was a butcher.

She started her career as a teen star back in the 1980s and released various albums in French.

She initially gained international recognition by winning both the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festival and the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, where she represented Switzerland.

The Canadian Tenors were invited to sing on Oprah in 2010, which was already a massive honor, to begin with.

Hearing that the Queen of All Media wanted them to sing in her show was definitely a dream come true.

They were excited and honored at the same time.

What the quartet did not expect was that Oprah had another gift for them.

The Canadian Tenors were already onstage and were singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and were bringing their best while performing for the show’s live audience, when suddenly, in the middle of their song, someone decided to crash onstage.
