Soaring as high the title suggests, the new single is an ear-gasmic delight of dance beats from start to finish. Even the lyrics allude to the new direction Céline is taking in her music.”

There’s something shifting in the air, if I’m not mistaken.
The dust is clearing everywhere, memories awaken.

From Caesars Palace to the night clubs of Las Vegas and beyond, this is an anthem of self empowerment and looking forward to the future. “I’m free like an eagle.” Now is the time for Céline to fly on her own and embrace the next chapter in pop diva status. Gliding like Céline’s heavenly vocals is the refreshing EDM production which build in unison to produce a modern, catchy track.

Céline Dion in the Eurovision Song Contest 1988

With the honour of being Switzerland’s last winner 31 years ago, Céline and the impassioned ballad ‘Ne partez pas sans moi’ has transcended the world of Eurovision to international superstardom. Taking victory in Dublin with 137 points – only one more than the United Kingdom’s Scott Fitzgerald, what an alternative trajectory that could’ve been! Since then Céline broke into the English language music scene. Most famously for the Titanic soundtrack, ‘My Heart Will Go On’. Which has contributed to Céline selling over 220 million albums worldwide and becoming an icon in the industry.

My first Eurovision memory was watching 1994 as a hatchling. I've been tapping my talons to the bops and bangers from Europe and beyond ever since! I finally spread my wings to attending the contest in Lisbon 2018 and am now a regular at many events and national finals - especially my regular nest at Eesti Laul.
