It certainly seems like Celine Dion's husband took the words 'never let go' to heart.

The 51-year-old Canadian megastar singer appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Monday night where she revealed that she initially did not want to record Titanic smash hit My Heart Will Go On.

Husband - Manager - Time - René - Angélil

However it was her husband and manager at the time, René Angélil, who had convinced her otherwise.

Dion said that she was 'glad they didn't listen to me,' but host Andy Cohen, 51, was obviously floored by the news and asked the singer to elaborate further why she almost skipped out on the show.

'It - Day

She explained: 'It didn’t appeal to me. I was probably very tired that day — very tired.

'My husband said, "Let’s hold on." He talked to the writer and he said, "Let’s try to make it, like, a little demo."'

Dion - Take - Song - Copies - James

Dion went on to reveal further that she had only needed one take to sing the song which went on to sell 18 million physical copies as a single which was composed by James Horner. Horner died in a plane crash in 2015 at the age of 61.

Celine said: 'I sang the song once and they built the orchestra around it. I never re-sang it for the recording. So the demo is the actual recording.

'But - Gazillion - Times

'But after that, I’ve sang it about 3 gazillion times.'

My Heart Will Go On won the 1998 Academy Award for Best Original song in addition to dominating the 1999 Grammy Awards as it won Record of the year, Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television.
