Celine Dion took a break from her grueling Caesar’s Palace schedule to lend her legendary pipes to the Chinese New Year celebration this weekend.
E! News reported, the multi-platinum singer flew to Beijing to help ring in the Year of the Snake on Sunday.
The “I’m Alive” entertainer helped out the festivities by singing the Chinese folk song “Jasmine Flower” in nearly perfect Mandarin.
BBC reported Dion took the stage with Chinese soprano Song Zuying. Dion reportedly sang “My Heart Will Go On” as well, arguably her most popular tune and what made her a household name in China.
Dion is an Academy Award and Grammy-winning artist. Her 2008-2009 Taking Chances World Tour is the 11th highest-grossing concert of all time and the third highest-grossing tour by a solo female artist, only behind Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet and MDNA tours.
Dion is expected to release her first English-language album in six years, Water and a Flame, later this year.
