Album information

The album contains Dion's first three singles: "Ce n'était qu'un rêve" (co-written by herself), "La voix du bon Dieu" and "L'amour viendra" (French adaptation of Dario Baldan Bembo's song "Dolce fiore"), as well as two covers: Renée Lebas' "T'ire l'aiguille" and Berthe Sylva's "Les roses blanches."

Dion collaborated on this project and all her next early French recordings with Eddy Marnay who wrote songs for Barbra Streisand, Édith Piaf, Nana Mouskouri and Claude François, among others.

René Angélil - Dion's manager (later husband) mortgaged his home to start his own record company just to produce her first records. He decided to put out two albums at the same time: La voix du bon Dieu and Céline Dion chante Noël. They had sold 30,000 copies in 1981 and they'd go on to sell about 125,000 copies the following year.[1] La voix du bon Dieu has sold 100,000 copies in total.[2] The album produced two top twenty Quebec singles in "Ce n'était qu'un rêve" and "La voix du bon Dieu" which peaked at number fourteen and eleven, respectively.

In 1982, Dion was nominated for the Félix Award for Newcomer of the Year.

"Ce n'était qu'un rêve" was also released in France in 1982 as Dion's first single in that country.

In 2005, Dion included "Ce n'était qu'un rêve" and "La voix du bon Dieu" on her greatest hits compilation On ne change pas.
