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 Celine, who is most popular for the theme song of the 1997 blockbuster movie Titanic, ‘My Heart Will Go On’.
A source says, â€œCeline 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 Rahmanâ€™s dedication. She spoke to him about a venture together and he is keen to be a part of it.â€
The source adds, â€œCeline wants Rahman to compose two new songs that she will sing during her US tour beginning March 15. Her forthcoming album is also set to have these numbers as it is already being expected that these singles will top the charts looking at both Celineâ€™s and Rahmanâ€™s popularity in Hollywood. This is going to be one big association.â€
