For many of us Canada brings to mind things like cold weather, hockey, and super polite people, but the country has also given us a variety of hugely successful musicians. There’s a lot of talent in the Great White North, as many of the bestselling and internationally respected acts hail from that side of the border. In fact, many of the most popular record-breaking hit makers ever are Canadian. Here are 15 of the biggest musical superstars to ever come out of Canada.
1. Celine Dion
Celine Dion was the youngest in a family of fourteen children born in Charlemagne, Quebec. She rose to fame as a singer, songwriter, occasional actress, and powerhouse business woman. She started her career as a teen under the guidance of her manager René Angélil who later became her husband (he recently passed away). René actually refinanced his home to pay for her first record, and things only went up from there. Throughout her career, her album have sold over 200 million copies globally, in both English and French markets. Now the vocal powerhouse is one the most successful artists in pop music history. She currently headlines her own show at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas.
