Charlie Chaplin - Dion To Smile In Las Vegas For Jackson

The CHARLIE CHAPLIN tune CELINE DION will perform at the Oscars on Sunday (17Feb11) will also feature in her new show in Las Vegas - as part of a tribute to MICHAEL JACKSON.
Dion will perform Smile as images of the celebrities and film technicians who have passed away in the last 12 months are flashed onto a screen behind her at the Academy Awards.
But it won't be a one-off performance - Dion, who was part of a tribute to the King of Pop at the 2010 Grammy Awards, will salute the late star during her new Sin City show with the song, a favourite of Jackson's.
She explains, "He changed my life. I saw him on TV and I wanted to sing in English because he was, so and I went to learn English and met with him and I (sang) with him and he came to see the show and he had a big impact on my life."
Jackson's brother Jermaine sang the Chaplin song at the King of Pop's memorial concert in 2009.

Thanks to Ms Dion for continuing Michael Jackson's legacy by paying tribute to him in this way. Michael's warm and loving smile was one of his most attractive features, and he continued to display that smile through good times and bad times alike.
