90's Nostalgia: Céline Dion - 'Because You Loved Me'

Related image

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

It was 25 years ago that Celine Dion first hit the top of Billboard's charts with "Because You Loved Me". The song, a power ballad by Diane Warren and David Foster, was from the Up Close & Personal soundtrack and really helped to establish Dion's now-signature style. Big, mushy-gushy ballads became her calling card a' la Titanic. But before Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" shattered records, she garnered critical acclaim with "Because You Loved Me".
