Céline Dion at 2024 Grammys

Céline Dion's net worth in 2024 is hard-earned.

The singer's been putting her powerhouse pipes to work since she was just 12 years old, and she's made a lot of people rich: From her stellar soundtrack appearances (not just Titanic—shoutout to Up Close and Personal!) to her Las Vegas residency financially rescuing the city from ruin to her cheeky track and video "Ashes" for Deadpool 2, Dion is a moneymaking machine.

In addition to her vocal talent and her hilarious and self-aware persona, Dion is also serious about causes close to her, which will feature in her upcoming Prime Video documentary I Am: Celine Dion. The project will examine Dion's life and her battle with stiff-person syndrome, raising awareness of the rare condition.

How did Céline Dion get famous?

Dion was born in Charlemagne, Quebec, in 1968, and is the youngest of 14 children. She grew up with a love of music and was named after the Hugues Aufray song "Céline." Essentially, she was destined for this.

In 1980, one of Dion's siblings sent René Angélil, one of Canada's best-known and most successful music managers, a recording of a song that then-12-year-old Dion wrote. Angélil, then 38, signed Dion almost immediately, took her and her mother on tour through Europe and Japan, and even mortgaged his home to finance the early days of her career.

(That sounds lovely and inspiring enough until you remember that the couple claimed that when she was 19 to his 45, Dion and Angélil's relationship became romantic. Whether or not it was a grooming situation or completely above board is up for debate, but the couple always maintained that it was merely a beautiful and innocent love story.)

In any event, the arrangement certainly worked out spectacularly on a professional level.

Early in Dion's career, she sang exclusively in French, and released her debut English-language album, Unison, in 1990. The album gave Dion her first Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit with "Where Does My Heart Beat Now." Her first real breakout moment came when she collaborated with Peabo Bryson on the title track to Disney's Beauty and the Beast soundtrack in 1991, earning Dion her first Grammy (for  Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal) as well as an Oscar for Best Original Song.

What is Céline Dion's net worth in 2024?

Céline Dion's net worth in 2024 is estimated at a whopping $480 million, according to Forbes.

This is obviously due to her massive pop career, but she's also a shrewd businesswoman to boot. She has a successful accessories line, was a co-founder of the Nickels Canadian chain restaurant and is a co-owner of the Schwartz's deli chain, owned a golf course, invested in Pure nightclub in Las Vegas, has a fragrance line and endorsed Air Canada (for which she recorded her song "You And I").

Perhaps most importantly, Dion is a co-owner (with late husband Angélil) of the Les Productions Feeling Inc., an artist management company. Having her husband as her manager, as well co-owning the management company itself, meant a lot of her income and commissions that would've normally went elsewhere stayed in-house. That adds up!

How much did Céline Dion's wedding cost?

Dion and Angélil's 1994 wedding—which was essentially Canada's royal wedding in terms of media coverage and fan frenzy—reportedly set them back a cool $500,000, with Dion's wedding gown alone costing close to $25,000.

How much did Céline make in Vegas?

Dion's first Las Vegas residency, A New Day, launched March 25, 2003. According to The Los Angeles Times, Dion's initial deal was worth $45 million for five nights a week of performances for three years—about the same that she'd otherwise earn touring for 40 dates at that point in her pop career.

Her first run raked in more than $400 million, which was more than Elvis Presley and the Rat Pack did combined (though it's unclear whether or not that accounts for inflation).

To give perspective on just how massive her impact on the city was: Dion was so successful in her Las Vegas residency that she was actually credited with reinvigorating the local economy and tourism in the Strip almost singlehandedly in 2011, as well as for paving the way for legacy acts like Cher, Aerosmith, Billy IdolRod Stewart and Elton John, as well as other modern megastars—including Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Swedish House Mafia, Calvin HarrisBlink-182, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Drake, Christina Aguilera, Janet JacksonKaty Perry, Gwen Stefani, TiestoAdele and Usher (phew!)—to book residencies in Sin City as well.

Dion wrapped up her final Las Vegas residency run (so far!) in 2019 with a whopping $681 million in ticket sales. There's even been some speculation that she may return to Vegas for another lucrative run, but that remains to be seen.

Dion's payday for Love Again isn't publicly known, but it was probably a sweet one. Not only did she play a pivotal role in the romcom alongside Sam Heughan and Priyanka Chopra Jonas (though she never actually filmed with them), she also co-wrote and recorded five songs for the soundtrack.

How much did Céline Dion make from the Titanic song?

Titanic grossed more than $2.2 billion during its box office run and "My Heart Will Go On" became a titanic hit in and of itself—even though Dion didn't want to sing it. She recalled in a TV interview that she didn't love the song and actually had period cramps when she recorded it—in one. Single. Take.

The soundtrack topped the Billboard 200 album chart for 16 weeks, and the single, which also appeared on Dion's Let's Talk About Love album, sold 18 million copies to date. It won four Grammys (Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television), plus the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Original Song.

All that said, Dion's specific earnings for the track aren't publicly known ... but we can assume they put her more in the Caledon Hockley than Jack Dawson tax bracket.

How much does Céline Dion make per year?

Dion's annual earnings vary depending on her release and performance schedule. In the final year of her Las Vegas residency (2019), she took home an estimated $37 million.

Since she's taken a step back from performing live in the wake of her stiff-person syndrome diagnosis, her income likely has dropped—but she's got enough money in the bank already to not worry about a dime.
