Twenty years later, and the song still makes an impact.
Twenty years after the mega-blockbuster 1997 "Titanic" brought ticket buyers back to the cinema, Celine Dion took to the stage at the Billboard Awards on Sunday, to sing "My Heart Will Go On," the love ballad from the movie.
As the signature flute begins those familiar opening cords, Celine appears beneath a huge jellyfish shaped crystal chandelier.
Clad in a Angel-winged, long sleeve gown by Stephane Rolland Haute Couture, the songstress belts out her signature ballad as scenes from the James Cameron film play out on a giant screen.
Stylist Law Roach told Billboard before the performance, “I think when those lights come up, people are really going to have that clutch my pearl, that deep sigh moment. You will remember her performance and her voice, but you will also remember her dress. No doubt about it."
At the time of its release "Titanic" starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio as ill-fated lovers, sold over 128 million tickets in the US alone.
"My Heart Will Go On" became a phenomenal hit in 1997, topping charts all over the world. It won the Academy Award for best song, A Golden Globe, Record of the Year in 1999, Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television.
