On the off chance you've been living in a self-dug hole since before the new millennium due to Armageddon-related jitters, Celine Dion is not just a diva -- she seems to have emerged as a Titan among divas. Since releasing her first English language recording in 1990, she's managed to give Whitney and Mariah a good scare with her remarkable vocal capabilities, while making everyone all wistful and nostalgic for a ship that sunk eons ago and becoming the first (and only) "New Streisand" to do a duet with the "Old, Original Streisand." With so many achievements under her belt in so little time, it seems likely that when the day is done, Dion may very well emerge atop the diva heap.

Taking Chances World Tour: The Concert
Runtime: 1 hr 42 minFreed from her long-term Las Vegas engagement in 2007, Celine Dion took a similar spectacle on the road to support her 2007 album Taking Chances. The Concert offers a souvenir of said tour, editing together highlights from late summer 2008 stints in Boston and Montreal. Celine throws an occasional curve ball -- her soul parade at the end of the show veers on high camp as she sings far too much James Brown for her own good -- but, as always, she gives the people what they want via a recitation of the expected hits in arrangements so splashy they sparkle even without the visuals. If this doesn't sound like a good time, well, you're not the audience -- this is for the fans and they will be pleased.

Girl Power! Live in Istanbul
Runtime: 57 minGirl Power! Live in Istanbul is a two-night concert by British girl group the Spice Girls. The concerts, which were organized by Pepsi as part of the group's sponsorship deal, were performed at the Abdi İpekçi Arena in Istanbul, Turkey on 12 and 13 October 1997.
The live feature brings all time fan-favorite hits as “Who Do You Think You Are?,” “Say You'll Be There,” “2 Become 1,” “Spice Up Your Life,” and many more. According to Rolling Stone journalist and biographer David Sinclair, "Scary, Baby, Ginger, Posh and Sporty were the most widely recognised group of individuals since John, Paul, George, and Ringo" With the "girl power" phenomenon, the Spice Girls were popular cultural icons of the 1990s.They are cited as part of the 'second wave' 1990s British Invasion of the US.
Runtime: 1 hr 49 minOn the one hand, pop musically speaking, worldbeaters such as Kylie Minogue are few and far between. Singers and performers of her stature and popularity rarely maintain their power for as long as she was able to. Her streaks of number one singles in both Australia and the U.K. are nearly insurmountable. And yet, on the other hand, her inability to really crack open the American pop market over the course of her career is a story that is heard all too often from groups hailing from nations as pop powerful as Australia and the U.K. Eventually, with the hugely successful "Can't Get You Out of My Head," Kylie would rattle the American pop psyche, reminding the rather insular scene that the bubbly girl who had first made waves with the 1987 cover of "The Loco Motion" had developed into a stylish, experienced, and able pop performer with a clear agenda — both musically and visually — and the chops to match. To focus on Minogue's American problem would only be looking at a small fraction of the larger story.
Back to Brooklyn
Runtime: 2 hr 17 minBarbra Streisand was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Still in her teens, she left home to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress.

Joy to the World: Live at Soundstage
Runtime: 53 minWorking with producers Dann Huff and Byron Gallimore, engineer Allen Sides and Grammy-winning arranger David Campbell, Faith Hill has crafted a one-of-a-kind Christmas record with Joy to the World, freshly conceived yet anchored in tradition. It is a loving tribute to both the spirit and the music of Christmas, one that pays homage to the classics.
Recorded over a two-year period, the album features reworked classics along with the only original song on the track and her single, "A Baby Changes Everything." The arrangements are diverse. From the big band orchestration of songs like "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, "Winter Wonderland" and "Holly Jolly Christmas," to the a cappella "The Little Drummer Boy" and the Appalachian feel of "Away In A Manger." The CD opens with "Joy To The World," and, says Hill, "From the very first note you hear, I wanted it to be joyous. I wanted to give you (the listener) the impression of what the song meant before a word was ever uttered."
Over the course of the past two years Faith has spent much of her time on the road. 2006’s Soul2Soul II Tour and Soul2Soul Tour 2007, which she did with
her husband Tim McGraw, was and still is the highest grossing country tour of all
time. It was selected as Pollstar Magazine’s "Major Tour of 2006" over industry powerhouses Madonna and the Rolling Stones. With the wrap up of the tour in 2007, they have the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history.
That tour became one of the many highlights of a career that includes five Grammy Awards and countless other awards, the sale of more than 30 million albums, and hit singles including "Wild One," "It Matters To Me," "This Kiss," "Breathe," "The Way You Love Me" "Cry" and "Mississippi Girl." And perhaps most impressive of all the accomplishments, Faith Hill is the only female artist to celebrate three consecutive album debuts atop both Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and Country Chart. With a voice that is soulful and powerful, there is simply no question that Faith is one of the music industry’s top vocalists.
As one of this generation’s most credible and visible talents, Faith Hill has based her career on dedication, passion and commitment.
