The Best of Celine Dion is a French compilation album by Canadian singer Céline Dion, released in selected European countries in 1988. It's her 14th French album and 3rd compilation. In Germany it was re-named Vivre.

Album information

The album is a compilation of Dion's previous songs, released thanks to "Ne partez pas sans moi" single success. On April 30, 1988 Dion won the Eurovision Song Contest with that song.[1]

The album contained mostly singles released in France: "D'amour ou d'amitié" (1983), "Mon ami m'a quittée" (1983), "C'est pour vivre" (1985), "Billy" (1986), "Je ne veux pas" (1987), "La religieuse" (1988) and "Ne partez pas sans moi" (1988). The last four were never released on Canadian albums.

The Best of Celine Dion has sold 100,000 copies.[2]
