Celine Dion Holds Back Tears After Performing New Song In Honor of Her Late Husband

Céline Dion performed her new single ‘Recovering’ for the first time in support of Stand Up To Cancer after a year filled with personal heartbreak. On January 14, 2016, her husband René Angélil passed away after having lived with cancer for a long time. Only two days later, Celine’s older brother, Daniel, also died from cancer.

Céline said that while grieving, she received an unexpected gift from Pink, who offered Celine this song, which Celine says expresses the power to stand up and stay strong.

At the end of her performance, an image of her husband, brother and father appears on the screen behind her and Celine struggles to hold back her tears.

Listen to her perform this beautiful, emotional new song and share it with your family and friends.
