She's dealing with a situation that no one should have to go through, and she STILL has it in her to come back for her fans!
Celine Dion is heading back to Las Vegas to resume her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and it was actually because of her husband Rene Angelil, who is sick with cancer, that she's going back!
The singer released an official statement that announced her return and it was a pretty emotional set of words!

Here's what her statement said:
"I am excited to finally tell my fans I am coming back to Caesars Palace. It was Rene's wish that I come back. While my family will always be my priority, my fans are just as important to me. I look forward to performing again for all of you starting August 27th, and more importantly having Rene there with me. Thank you for giving me this time I needed to spend with my family."
Although it was known that Celine was heading back to Caesars Palace, the official date was not yet realized to be August 27th until now!!!
The singer's last performance at the Caesars Palace was in July 2014 and she had done about 927 shows at this point.
We're amazed by this woman's tenacity and strength in returning to music even while her husband battles throat cancer.
We're hopeful he is able to recover as his wife puts on a show for the masses. We can't wait to see Celine Dion make her return to the place she thrives! The stage!!!
