Some two-dozen singing central Iowa kids will share a Nebraska stage tonightwith one of pop music’s biggest-selling Grammy winners. Twenty-five membersof the Des Moines Childrens Choruses will perform with Celine Dion, bestknown for singing the love theme from “Titanic,” the top-grossing movie ofall time. Chorus director Eugene Wilson says the young singers are verypsyched up for their small part in tonight’s show.The kids will sing part of the chorus to “Let’s Talk About Love” with thediva Dion at the Omaha Civic Auditorium. Wilson says this will be a bigmoment for the young singers, even though they’ll only be performingon-stage with Dion for perhaps two minutes.Wilson says the young singers will head home after their seconds in thespotlight without staying for the whole show — as the promoter who got themonto the stage couldn’t scrounge 25 extra tickets. For production purposes,an excerpt from Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” from the “Titanic” soundtrack:Tonight’s performance is scheduled for eight o’clock. The kids range in agefrom ten to 12 and represent 12 central Iowa communities.
