In an upcoming auction hosted by Julien's Auctions, fans and collectors will have the opportunity to acquire handwritten lyrics from two iconic songs by Grammy-winning artist Celine Dion. This event, titled "Music Health Alliance's Lyrics for a Cause," is set to take place next month.

The first set of handwritten lyrics up for auction are from Celine Dion's 1999 collaboration with renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, "The Prayer." These lyrics are not only a piece of music history but also feature a signature from one of the song's renowned writers, David Foster.

The second set of lyrics come from Celine Dion's 2023 song "The Gift," featured in the film "Love Again." These handwritten lyrics are signed by songwriter Tina Parol and are accompanied by a compact disc copy of the film's soundtrack, complete with a heartfelt inscription: "Love is The Gift!" This auction event coincides with Celine Dion's recent battle with stiff person syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes muscle spasms and rigid muscles, often triggered by light touches or loud noises.

This condition has had a significant impact on her daily life and temporarily forced her to cancel all her shows through April 2024.

Supporting Music Health Through Iconic Memorabilia

The auction, which marks Julien's Auctions' 20th anniversary in Nashville, is set to include memorabilia from other notable artists, such as Garth Brooks, Melissa Etheridge, Rick Springfield, Hozier, Kenny Chesney, Kelsea Ballerini, Keith Urban, and more.

These items will be auctioned off to support the Music Health Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing healthcare advocacy and resources to individuals in the music industry. Bidding for these unique memorabilia pieces begins on Monday and ends on Tuesday, November 14, at 6:00 p.m.

CST. The auction will be held both online through Julien's Live Auctions and in person at the Hard Rock Cafe Nashville. Martin Nolan, co-founder and executive director of Julien's Auctions, expressed their privilege in partnering with the Music Health Alliance for this annual benefit initiative.

For two decades, Julien's Auctions has been committed to philanthropy, giving back to the music community that has enriched the lives of many through their artistry and gifts. This auction offers a rare chance for the public to own a piece of music history while supporting a vital cause.
