International Grammy award-winning superstar Celine Dion did not disappoint her Caribbean fans with her explosive performance last Friday night at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival 2012.

The Jamaica Jazz & Blues festival held at Greenfield Stadium, Trelawny, hosted a sold-out crowd of thousands of fans who flock the venue to enjoy a night filled with remarkable talents. Opening acts included popular Jamaican artistes such as Tessanne Chin and Tami Chyn, Richie Stephens & Gentleman and American-born jazz singer, Nicole Henry, who also wowed the crowd with her versatile and powerful voice. Celine Dion’s non-stop performance had the entire stadium singing along to her many classic hits such as Where does my heart beat now, Because you love me, Its all coming back to me now, The Reason, Gold Finger, At Seventeen, Power of Love, and, Treat her like a lady, with a surprise duet with Jamaican singer Diana King. 
Dion thanked Jamaica for the warm reception she had received upon her arrival and commented, “it took us years to get here and tonight we are going to make up for all those years. “I know that we have never been here. I want to thank you for your support and coming to our show tonight. And happy anniversary of 50 years of Independence,” she concluded. The overall presentation was captivating and fans were not let down with the non-stop music and total stage command that Dion brought to the show. Even with her four quick wardrobe changes, the overall concert transitioned smoothly and proved to be of international standards. And although her performance lasted over an hour, the crowd shouts for an encore brought a momentous close to the night, with Dion returning to the stage to perform one of her most famous hits, My heart will go on.
