International superstar and Las Vegas resident artist Celine Dion has unveiled a handbag and accessories line, the Celine Dion Collection.

More than a thousand people camped out recently for Ms. Dion’s appearance in Montreal in hopes of seeing the singer in person.

She told the New York Times, “People love me beyond what I do,” she said. “They get married with my song. They lose people with my song. They remarry with another one. They sing a lullaby with their kid with my song.”

One hundred Montreal fans received a bag and all sale proceeds went to a local children’s and obstetric hospital. The lucky winners also received 30 seconds to hug Ms. Dion, or cry to her, or share a painful story about being in a coma, the Times reports.

The first products associated with the Celine Dion brand is the collection of accessories, which are being produced by The Bugatti Group, a Quebec-based business well known for travel bags.

A lifestyle brand, which is to include home goods, active wear and beauty products, is expected to roll out in 2018.
