Céline Dion Fans Sing along as Saxophone Street Musician Plays 'My Heart Will Go on' outside Her Boston Show
Fans of superstar songstress Celine Dion were treated to another individual performance as they departed the TD Garden venue of her Boston concert, making sure that the show did indeed go on.
As fans of Dion trooped out of the concert venue, a street musician named Joe Sparkes was standing outside to give a second performance.
The busker used his saxophone to thrill the departing fans to a sweet delivery of one of her greatest songs ever.
Joe Sparkes caught the attention of more than a dozen fans as they sang to his melodious tune of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On."
While some of his excited audience sang, some others danced, while a few others who were utterly amazed dropped some dollar bills for him. Joe Sparkes posted the now-viral video of his performance with the caption:
"Can you guess who performing at TD Garden last night? And again tonight!"
This is not the first time that Joe Sparkes would be thrilling concert-goers to performances such as this. The busker is quite popular among Bostonians who attend concerts, basketball games, or hockey games at the TD Garden.
According to him, he started doing these kinds of performances in 2017, at the Bruins and Celtics games, when he "didn't have an amp," and usually freestyled songs that popped up in his head.
While on "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen, Celine Dion revealed that she almost missed out on singing the song, as it didn't appeal to her, adding that she was exhausted on that day.
That Fall, Joe decided to play more popular songs that could be easily recognized by people, and that was when things took off for him.
One of his other famous performances came during Demi Lovato's concert in March 2018. Outside the venue, Joe's show saw many of his listeners' dance as he played the song, "Sorry, Not Sorry." Recalling that day, he said:
"That was the first concert I played where I had a big crowd. Screaming, dancing, just a fun little party."
"My Heart Will Go On" is one of the greatest classics of all time, but if not for her late husband, Rene Angelil, Celine Dion may never have recorded the hit song for the motion picture, "Titanic."
However, her husband and manager at that time, Rene, asked her to hold on and asked the writer to try to make the song into a little demo.
Celine Dion further revealed that she needed to take the song just once. Listening to her husband proved to be a great thing to do, as the song has gone on to sell millions of copies worldwide, and is among the classical songs of all time, earning Dion multiple awards as well.
One wonders what would have been had Dion not sang "My Heart Will Go On," but the world only feels blessed and grateful that she did.
