The King of Rock Meets the Queen of Ballads in ‘If I Can Dream’ Sequence


Two musical legends were brought together on stage when the Queen of Ballads, Celine Dion, and a hologram image of the King of Rock n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, appeared on American Idol in April 2007 and sang a duet of Presley’s classic tune, “If I Can Dream.”

The stunning sequence was introduced by Ryan Seacrest and the rendition was a heartwarming reminder to fans who loved as well as lost the King. Yet, thanks to modern day technology and visual effects, moments like this between two musical legends–one dead, one very much alive–are possible. It was also a wonderful moment for fans of Celine Dion, who can marvel at her range and intense musicality. The collaboration was a delightful treat for music lovers of all ages. In many ways, it was a dream come true for fans of both artists, as well as music lovers around the world.
