Friend and musical collaborator of Rene Angelil says they were like ‘old souls’

MONTREAL — A longtime friend and collaborator of the late Rene Angelil says he felt a strong bond with Celine Dion’s husband from the moment they met.

Vito Luprano signed Dion to what was then known as CBS Records in 1986.

Luprano says when he met Angelil he thought they were like “old souls.”

And he says from his first handshake with Angelil that they decided they were going to be partners in the venture of “taking Celine to the top.”

Luprano was responsible for organizing and overseeing the production team that worked on more than 20 albums with the pop superstar.

Angelil died of cancer Thursday at the age of 73.
