THE VEGAS YEARS – ABOUT THE SHOW
Julia Martin is one of the most versatile and sought after Celine Dion tribute artistes in the world, and this sensational tribute show has taken Julia around the globe, entertaining audiences in the most prestigious of venues. The Entertainment Agents Association in 2018 & 2019 have voted Miss Julia Martin, the UK’s No1. Celine Dion tribute, an accolade that has been mirrored by both the BBC and Sky Television.
On June 8th 2019 after an unparalleled two-decade period of entertainment, Celine’s residency at Caesars Palace came to a close. Celine entertained more than three million visitors, a feat unmatched by any other Vegas Legend. To celebrate the end of this unique era of music, ‘The Vegas Years’ will combine stunning replica Celine costumes; classic hit songs, and a portrayal of Celine’s epic Vegas performances, into a spectacular sound, light and visual theatre production. This show will not only bring-to-life the inspirational Vegas legacy of Celine Dion, but will also take the audience on a musical journey through the outstanding singing career of this singing legend. With meticulous attention to detail, Julia will weave her magic and deliver a spectacular theatre show that makes the audience feel that Celine herself is actually in the theatre.
Celine is known for a clear mezzo-soprano voice and her five-octave range that can sing great ballads. Julia Martin matches this skill, with an amazing ability to re-produce Celine’s incredible vocal range, a feat that very few other Celine tribute artists can match. This means that Julia is able to perform each and every one of Celine’s songs in the original key, thus ensuring a vocal performance that is so true to the original that people in the audience could almost think that Julia was miming to the original song. Julia is also one of a select few Celine Dion tribute artiste that can perform a selection of songs in Celine’s native French language, and what better choice than Celine’s biggest selling French song to date, ‘Pour que tu m’aimes encore’, truly beautiful to listen to, even if you do not understand French. Julia can perform this song fully in French or half French / half English.
‘It is safe to say that Julia is yet again setting the benchmark with her innovative and outstanding tribute’
Celine is all about vocals and movements and Julia delivers on both counts in a performance that is simply OUTSTANDING. Julia has the ability to include the audience within the performance so that every person in the room feels special and all of her outfits are authentically copied from the originals. Lightning fast costume changes complete the illusion.
Julia whilst recently performing her Celine Dion tribute show in Dubai was also invited to meet up with Celine in person. The two of them spent time chatting backstage, just prior to Celine going out onto stage to perform her ‘Taking Chances’ world tour. Celine’s sister even took the time out of her busy schedule to come and watch Julia perform, commenting to Julia at the end of her performance that…
‘This was the best Celine tribute she had ever seen’ and that the looks, movements, mannerisms and most importantly the voice were absolutely spot on. She went on to say that it was just like watching her sister on stage’.
Julia’s dedication and attention to detail is what makes her shows so special and her amazing ability to mimic both the voice and movements would leave you thinking that you had seen the original artiste. All shows are provided with full PA, lights and a dedicated sound engineer.

AUTISM UNSEEN – TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE
After the success of the Autism Unseen Kilimanjaro Challenge where Julia helped raise over £40,000 to send a team of autistic youngsters to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Celine Dion ‘The Vegas Years’ is now raising funds for a new and exciting challenge. The show is currently touring theatres throughout the UK in support of the Autism Unseen Tallships Challenge, where in July 2020 Autism Unseen will be taking 6 groups of autistic and special needs youngsters, accompanied by team buddies, and sailing them 1,675 miles around the UK in a 70 foot Challenger Racing Yacht. This is one of Autism Unseen’s most ambitious challenges to date, and the first time that a challenge of this nature has ever been set. By the time the autistic challenge participants have completed their voyage they will be much more self assured, confident and ready to meet head-on the daily challenges of being autistic.

Miss Julia Martin
Thank you for taking the time to visit my Celine Dion tribute website. I have been a professional singer for over 20 years; I perform throughout the UK, Europe and around the world. I’ve entertained in world-class hotels, arenas, theatres, cruise liners and the homes of the rich and famous. The job is awesome, I get paid for doing what I enjoy the most, paying tribute to some of the world's most celebrated female artists.
My passion is performing and taking on the persona of other characters, to sound like them, dress like them and deliver a performance to an audience in such away that the audience feels they are watching the original performer. Whilst this site is dedicated to my Celine Dion tribute show, I do have a selection of other tribute shows that I regularly perform. (MORE INFORMATION)
I also own an events management company, that organises everything from a private themed party to a full scale theatre production, services can include dancers, costumes, props and entertainment. One of my recent events for an audience of nearly 1,000 people included lots of pyrotechnics and a live tiger on stage. (MORE INFORMATION)
Having performed over the years on a number of cruise liners, I was recently invited onto 'Cruising with the Stars', a popular chat show, on SKY television. The video clip from the show is below, and I was given the opportunity to talk about my life in show business, not just on the cruises but also in other venues around the world. I have also launched my new www.juliamartin.net website, which is now fully up and running, if you want any further information on any of my other shows or more details on my Events Company 'JM Productions', then please feel free to visit this site, just click on the link to the left.
I enjoy helping to raise money for charities, my youngest son Charlie is 25, and autistic, he is the inspiration behind much of my charity work. I am the founder and chairperson of Autism Unseen, a charity that helps young autistic individuals integrate into society, and I have written and recorded a song for the Conflict Free Mineral Association (CFMA), who are helping to abolish child slave labour in the DRC. I also regularly get involved in other fund raising ventures, for a number of other charitable endeavours, and just recently I completed an 80 km walk from Switzerland to France in aid of Syria Relief. (MORE INFORMATION)
Five years ago, I decided that I wanted to take on new challenges, and to fulfil another of my ambitions, that of becoming a Barrister. With my children now grown up, I enrolled at the University of Hull on a 4-year joint honours degree in Law & Legislative Studies. This process of going back to being a student, albeit a mature student, changed my life completely and although I still regularly sing, I have become involved in many new and exciting projects. These include, being Law Society President, BPP Liaison Officer, and the most rewarding of all, working for a full year in the House of Lords, alongside Lord Norton of Louth. (MORE INFORMATION)
I still have many new challenges, not least becoming a Barrister, and although I have recently now passed my Bar Exam and a Masters in Law, I will never leave behind my passion to sing. Every week I shall step out onto stage, it might be Switzerland, Singapore, Dubai or somewhere in the UK, and I will continue doing what I enjoy the most ... performing and delivering a tribute show that makes the audience believe that they have just seen the original artist.
Love Julia x
