It's been a while since I blogged now, but here I am again.
Last summer I was lucky to meet Celine in Quebec City in Canada. This was a totally unplanned meeting as I was waiting for her at her hotel. A dream came true after over 25 years as a fan.....over 25 years of waiting. I was in the right place at the right time.....and that was it!
Getting a meet and greet is not easy. It takes a lot of work, planning, requests, e-mails and so on. You have to WORK for a meet & greet, or you have to be in the right place at the right time. Not every dedicated fan has the resources to make it to a m&g, as Celine most of the time is stationed in Las Vegas, which means an airfare to Vegas, hotel, show tickets you name it. And it means you have to try to get an organized m&g, you have to go through her management, and I can tell you...there are a LOT of fans in line wanting the same. Some fans make it, some are lucky to make it more than one time, and some fans don't make it at all. We can't always get what we want in life, and things doesn't come to you....you have to act to make it happen.
Celine's management have their hands full organizing it all, working their butts off trying to please fans with their requests. But they can't please everyone.....sad but true. I have, some fan friends and even my sister and mother have, tried to get me a m&g with Celine, without result. I have even been in Vegas 3 times to see her show, but no m&g. I believe an organized m&g wasn't meant for me, but........I made it ON MY OWN! I travelled to Quebec, I saw her show "Une Seule Fois" (which was an AMAZING show), I showed up at her hotel...and there she was.....my dream came true.....I got her signature....I got a picture with her.....and I almost fainted lol........a dream I never thought would come true. But I have a motto I live with.....NEVER GIVE UP!!!
Things happen when you least expect it!!!! And then again....I got to see her outside her hotel in Paris last November. So it's not impossible. You just have to BELIEVE!!!!
So to all my fellow fans.....follow your dream.....do things the right way.....and you will get there!
What do you do to try to get to meet our idol Céline?
