I’m Alive” is a song recorded by Canadian recording artist Celine Dion for her sixth English-language album A New Day Has Come (2002). It was released as the album’s second single on 9 August 2002 and was also featured in the film Stuart Little 2. The song was written and produced by Kristian Lundin and Andreas Carlsson, who already worked with Celine Dion in 1999 on “That’s the Way It Is“.

I’m Alive” is an uplifting midtempo song, where Celine Dion declares she is alive, fulfilled as a mother, and “in love.” The music video was directed by Dave Meyers between 24–25 May 2002 and premiered in June 2002. There were two versions made: with or without the Stuart Little 2 movie scenes. “I’m Alive” became a worldwide hit, reaching the top ten in many countries. It was certified platinum in Belgium (50,000) and gold in France (250,000).
While working on the album, Celine Dion commented, “I couldn’t wait to go back into the recording studio. And, I loved the songs that people wrote for me on this album. Those songs became even closer to me because, the fact that I took two years off, they wrote songs for me that were even closer to my emotions. I had things to talk about. I had things to sing about. It was a fun adventure, no pressure, relaxed, smooth, powerful but controlled. I really had a wonderful time. And to see my friends again, it was great.

I’m Alive” was released as the album’s second single on 12 August 2002. For radio release, the song was re-worked by Humberto Gatica. Epic Records moved forward with the “Humberto Gatica” version as the main version. His version was released on the Stuart Little 2 soundtrack as well as promotional and commercial CD singles.

Although in October 2008 the album version of “I’m Alive” was included on My Love: Essential Collection, the new remix by Laurent Wolf was released to promote it in France. In January 2009, further promotional remixes were made by Maurice Joshua for U.S. clubs.
While reviewing the Stuart Little 2 soundtrack, William Ruhlmann of Allmusic wrote that “Celine Dion occupies the position taken by Trisha Yearwood on the soundtrack to Stuart Little in 1999, singing an upbeat rhythm number.” Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine called it one of “the album’s standout tracks“, naming it “an uplifting midtempo number.” ABC’s RollerCoaster review was positive, commenting that “this is the type of music you play in the background when your having a good laugh with friends or a nice tea with family. It’s the kind of song you sing along to and slowly get wrapped in it.” Neal Sky of Pop Dirt named it a “bubblegum-radio-song“. Matt Wilson of UK Mix was positive towards the song, stating that “this new offering is actually an uplifting song that will no doubt be a hit single for her. This is one of the best singles to date.

Chuck Taylor from Billboard said that “I’m Alive” demonstrates a stylistic “left turn, with its throbbing tribal rhythms and a loose, sky-grazing vocal from Dion.” The “percolating” Humberto Gatica Mix “adds juice” to the album version, while the uptempo Wake Up Mix, with assistance from Ric Wake and Richie Jones, is Dion’s most “inspired and festive” remix to date, with Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” woven into the beat to “splendid effect”. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic called this song uplifting and highlighted it; in his review for album he called the song a “hitworthy uptempo gem”.
The song proved to be successful in many European countries. On the Austrian Singles Chart, the song debuted at number 71. The following week, it climbed from number 71 to number 23.

When you call on me
When I hear you breathe
I get wings to fly
I feel that I’m alive

When you look at me

I know that I’m alive
