I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

One of the more notable cover versions of "All by Myself" was recorded by CΓ©line Dion in 1996. It was the fourth (or third, depending on the country) hitsingle from her album Falling into You.[4] with a belted high F ( F5 ) sustained 12 seconds.[5] Produced by David Foster at Compass Point Studios in The Bahamas, it was released on October 7, 1996 in Europe, January 13, 1997 in Australia, and March 11, 1997 in North America.
There were three music videos made. The first one was released in October 1996. It contains fragments from Dion's photo session for the Falling into Youalbum cover and some scenes from her Live Γ  Paris concert. It was made for the single version. The second version was made for the UK market with the same white t-shirt scenes but adding footage of a young couple in love at Christmas time, instead of scenes from Dion's concert. This was made for the album version. Finally, a live music video was released in March 1997 in North America (from the 1996 concert in Montreal).
CΓ©line Dion performed this song many times during world tours, TV shows and music events such as the Grammy Awards (1997), Billboard Music Awards(1997) and Bambi Awards (1996). A performance from her 2008-2009 Taking Chances Tour can be found on the Taking Chances World Tour: The ConcertDVD/CD.
Dion recorded also a Spanish version of "All by Myself," called "Sola Otra Vez" (English: By Myself Again). It was added to the Falling into You Latin American/Spanish edition, and as a B-side to other singles from that album. This version became available worldwide on Dion's later compilation The Collector's Series, Volume One.
The "All by Myself" single became one of Dion's biggest hits in the United States, reaching number 1 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks (for three weeks) and the Latin Pop Airplay (two weeks). It peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 (number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay and number 5 on the Hot 100 Singles Sales). It was also a top 10 hit in France, United Kingdom, Wallonia in Belgium and the Republic of Ireland. In Canada, "All by Myself" was released as a promotional single only, hitting number 1 on the Adult Contemporary Chart. "All by Myself" was certified gold in the U.S. (500,000), and silver in the UK (200,000) and France (165,000).
The track was included on some editions of Dion's greatest hits All the Way… A Decade of Song in 1999 and on My Love: Essential Collection in 2008.


"For You I Will" is a pop ballad written by Diane Warren and performed by Monica. Her version was included on the soundtrack to the film Space Jam. In1997, when released as a single, the song became a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as Billboards R&B chart. It also experienced some success internationally. The song's lyrics involve the singer pledging love and devotion and promising to help an unnamed "you" overcome any difficulty, regardless of the magnitude. The song also heard on her second 1998 album, The Boy Is Mine.
The song debuted at an impressive number on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number four, becoming Monica's second top five single and one of her most successful songs. It also went platinum. In New Zealand the single peaked at number 2, becoming her most successful single in the country after "The Boy Is Mine."
"For You I Will" was ranked #13 on Top Hot 100 Hits of 1997.
The music video of "For You I Will" was directed by Francis Lawrence (known for his work for Britney SpearsDestiny's ChildJanet JacksonJennifer Lopez & Justin Timberlake) and was filmed in the movie studio, in New York. It inter-cuts scenes from Space Jam with scenes featuring Monica.
