Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the theocratic songs that are sung by celebrities, Celion Dion and others?

Are you referring to Kingdom Songs? Why would Celion Dion be singing Kingdom songs?

Some of the members of our choruses are or have been famous in the past, but neither they nor the GB are interested in giving them the praise that belongs to Jehovah.

The only celebrity I know of who sings our kingdom melodies publicly has been George Benson, but he's done it under the radar. I know of one kingdom melody he's done and two songs that appeared on jwbroadcasting. The Celine Dion one was in fact a sister called Sheila Hutchinson I believe ... which is more plausible.

Correct about Sis Hutchinson... she was one of the Emotions with her sisters, an R&B singing group of the 70s.  They sang "Boogie Wonderland" along with Earth Wind & Fire among other tunes of the day. She attends a congregation in Chicago. However, she's not the one people think is Celine Dion.

 

I marvel that anyone thinks that 1. Celine Dion (a Catholic) would EVER sing or be allowed to sing one of our tunes.. and 2.  that the sister they think is Dion... IS Dion.  They sound NOTHING alike.  :mellow:

I don't think you will find them easily, since the Slave discouraged shared them and said they were in violation of copyright.

▪ A number of publishers have telephoned the branch office regarding certain recordings of Kingdom songs sung in a popular style that are presently being circulated among Jehovah’s Witnesses. They wonder if these recordings have the organization’s approval. We are aware of these recordings and would like to inform you that they do not have our approval. Please do not circulate or download these recordings from the Internet. We trust this information will clarify matters.

Uani, whom do you believe it is that's singing that duet with George Benson?

I don't know... But sounds a bit like the sister who sings in We Give Our Best and We Marvel at Your Work.

 

And she doesn't sound like Celine Dion
