THE promoters of the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival are this week expected to announce that multi-award-winning Canadian superstar Celine Dion has been signed for next year's staging of the annual event.

The announcement will no doubt generate excitement among Jamaicans as the singer is extremely popular here where her single, Because You Love Me is a big hit.

Dion became an international star after she recorded the title track for the animated Disney hit movie Beauty and the Beast.

The song went to number one and won her an Academy and a Grammy Award.

Over the years, she has compiled an impressive discography consisting of 23 studio albums, six live albums and 17 compilation sets.
