Rahman, Dion collaboration

MUMBAI: Double Oscar-winning musician AR Rahman is all set to team up with Canadian singer Celine Dion for an international album. Rahman is expected to record a couple of songs with Dion, who is most popular for the Titanic theme song, My Heart Will Go On.

A source says, “Celine and Rahman first met when he was recording the remake of the Michael Jackson single We Are The World to raise money for Haiti victims. It looks like she was bowled over by Rahman’s dedication. She spoke to him about a venture together and he is keen to be a part of it.”

The source adds, “She wants him to compose two new songs for her US tour beginning March 15. Her forthcoming album will also have these numbers. These singles will top the charts looking at their popularity in Hollywood. This is big association.”
