"If You Asked Me To" is a song written by Diane Warren, originally recorded by American R&B singer, Patti LaBelle, in 1989. Less than three years later, the song was re-arranged, covered, and further popularized by Canadian pop singer, Céline Dion, for her 1992 self-titled album. Dion's version was significantly more successful than LaBelle's, reaching number-four in the United States, and performing strongly in several other countries around the world. It is often considered a signature song for both artists.
