Celine DionPerformed by Brigitte Valdez
Brigitte Marie Valdez, a beautiful mix of Greek, Spanish, Italian, and French ancestry, was, fittingly, born in the movie capital of the world—Hollywood, CA. Raised in the desert oasis of Palm Springs, she is now presently fulfilling her lifetime dream--entertaining audiences. Beginning with when she was old enough to stand on a wooden bench in her living room, Brigitte has been belting out notes to songs from Barbara Streisand, Whitney Houston, Sandi Patti, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion for a lifetime. Singing professionally, Brigitte has toured the United States and abroad, performing in over 30 sports’ arenas, for various major conventions and as a stellar opening act.
Since 2002, “Legends in Concert,” has kept Brigitte very busy, using her world-class voice to take on the persona of the electrifying Celine Dion. In an industry where imitation is considered the sincerest form of flattery, Brigitte paints the most definitive portrayal of Ms. Dion. Brigitte first showcased her skills on Dick Clark’s “Your Big Break” at the NBC Studios in Burbank, California. And, more recently, she appeared on and was voted into the semi-finals of one season of the highly acclaimed T.V. show entitled, "The Next Best Thing." These international breaks have led Brigitte to perform in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Branson, Myrtle Beach, Florida, Lake Tahoe and Osaka, Japan.
Performing live, however, is not Brigitte’s only forte. She’s recorded several solo releases at Paramount Pictures and Warner Brothers, and she is featured in many radio and television commercials. With very little effort, this diminutive songbird regularly captivates her listeners with her divine voice, inspiring all who hear her sing.
