My Heart Will Go On-Titanic
Celine Dion’s song “My Heart Will Go On” is a melody that she recorded in her native Canada. As the main soundtrack to James Cameron’s blockbuster film Titanic, which is based on the real story of the same Atlantic ocean liner that went down in 1912 after clashing with an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean, the song serves as a tribute to the music of the era. While Walter Afanasieff and James Horner oversaw the song’s composition and its words were written by Will Jennings, the song’s production was handled by James Horner, James Horner, and Simon Franglen.
The song “My Heart Will Go On” is widely regarded as Dion’s signature piece. Having sold over 18 million copies worldwide, it is the second most successful physical single by a female artist in music history and is one of the finest physiological singles ever. In addition, it was the best-selling single in the world in 1998. It was also given the name to the Recording Industry Association of America’s and the National Endowment for the Arts’ list of the 100 greatest songs of the twentieth century.
The song was nominated for Best Picture for Best Original Track in 1998. It dominated the 1999 Grammy Awards, taking home awards for Record of the Year — marking the first time a Canadian had won the award — Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television, among other honors. In 1998, the song was also shortlisted for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Track.
