Best Selling Single of Celine Dion

In 1997, Canadian singer Celine Dion released her best-selling single "My Heart Will Go On" from the movie Titanic, based on a love story that took place on a transatlantic ship that sank after colliding with an iceberg in 1912.

The song became a worldwide sensation, selling more than 18 million copies and topping the music charts in more than 20 countries.

It was the world's best-selling single in 1998 and included in the list of the Songs of the Century by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Recording Industry Association of America.

The music for the song was originally composed by James Horner as an instrumental piece to be used in the movie. He then wanted to add lyrics to it, and lyricist Will Jennings was hired to write from an older person's point of view who was looking back on their younger years.

Dion performed the song at the 2017 Billboard awards to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
