Les chemins de ma maison (meaning The Paths of My House) is a French studio album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released in Quebec, Canada on 7 September 1983.[1]

Content, commercial performance and awards[edit]

The album got Gold certification in Canada[2] and has sold 100,000 copies. It received a Félix Award for the Best Selling Album of the Year. Dion also won Félix Award for Female Vocalist of the Year and was nominated for Pop Album of the Year and Artist of the Year Achieving the Most Success Outside Quebec.[3] The first single "Mon ami m'a quittée" topped the Quebec charts for nine weeks. "Ne me plaignez pas" (second single) is an adaptation of "Please Don't Sympathise" originally recorded by Sheena Easton. Eddy Marnay wrote French lyrics for this track.

In April 1983, Dion released her first album in France, called Du soleil au cœur, with the same cover picture as Les chemins de ma maison. It also contained six songs from the latter.
