In a new interview with TV host Andy Cohen, Céline Dion admitted that at first she wanted no part of "My Heart Will Go On", the now-famous theme to James Cameron's movie Titanic.

Céline Dion appeared as a guest on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and revealed that she almost did not sing the legendary Titanic song "My Heart Will Go On".

"It didn't appeal to me. I was probably very tired that day. I don't know, very tired". The 51-year-old added she was convinced by her late husband René Angélil.

Dion also explained that a demo she made became the official song: "I sang the song once and they built the orchestra around it. I never resang it for the recording, actually. So, the demo is the actual recording but after that I sang it three gazillion times".

In 2016, Dion dedicated the legendary "My Heart Will Go On" to Angélil, who died the same year after suffering from cancer.
