Never before have two top artists created such a multimedia work to honour the unique and steadfast bond between mother and child. Vocalist Celine Dion and photographer Anne Geddes conceived Miracle as a way to express something deep within their own hearts, and now both the experience and the outcome will delight music and visual art fans throughout the world. Miracle features more than 100 stunning new Geddes images. Each frame reflects the beauty, grace, and magic of both the photographer and her subject. Babies enfolded in blooms, mothers embracing the life flowering within: Anne's artistic eye captures it all. The exquisite images are wedded with the lyrics to all-new songs by Dion, created and performed on the book-accompanying CD in Celine's unmistakable international superstar style. It's easy to hear how her clear and melodious voice has captivated millions throughout her career. A DVD rounds out this artistic package, exploring the genesis of the Miracle project and taking its audience behind the scenes to witness the making of this memorable production. Celine's title track music video highlights the DVD. As a complement to this many-faceted experience, Sony Music will release its stand-alone Dion CD concurrent with the book's debut. AMP is delighted to play a role in bringing this important collaboration to readers and listeners, providing a crossover experience rivalled by few others. Mothers, grown children, grandmothers, friends, and gift givers everywhere will want to join this celebration of wonder.

Anne Geddes is an internationally renowned photographer highly respected for her successful depiction of childhood's magic and mystery. Anne's award-winning images of babies are published in more than 50 countries. Her previous books, translated into as many as 16 languages, have sold more than 16 million copies worldwide. Celine Dion is one of the most popular recording artists in history and has topped music charts since she began performing professionally in 1981. Celine's album sales alone exceed 160 million copies and have earned her five U.S. Grammy Awards and seven World Music Awards in Europe along the way. Celine's stage show, A New Day, consistently sells out at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, making it one of the most highly attended productions in Las Vegas history.From Publishers Weekly:
Geddes's photographs of newborns poised on flowers and within sheer, stockinglike sacs have sold more than 15 million books in more than 50 countries; Dion's multi-octave vocal stylings are unmistakable, from the Titanic soundtrack and far beyond. Dion's attempts and eventual success in having a child were well documented on the supermarket racks; Geddes's success has been the stuff of magazine features for years. Thus this 11" × 13" collaboration has something of an inevitable feel to it, sharing its title with Dion's album of lullabies and apostrophes to children (such as John Lennon's "Beautiful Boy"). The book itself contains more than 100 new full-color Geddes photos, a number of which feature Dion (but not her son, Rene Charles, who was born in 2001 and is thus about a thousand days too old for the project) along with various lovely infants of various hues, and others with Geddes's signature newborn-as-a-flower's-center shots. Lyrics from the songs gently float among the images, which, aside from Dion, are familiar looking—and should meet with familiar levels of success.
