Things are on the up-and-up for Céline Dion!

It's been almost a year since the the singer announced that she would be going on hiatus from her Las Vegas residency because her husband René Angélil's health had worsened. The 73-year-old has been battling the disease for 15 years. Whoa!

However, in a positive turn of events, it was reported that the diva's husband's throat cancer has seemed to improve.

The It's All Coming Back To Me performer is green-lit to return to Sin City sooner than later! AH-Mazing!

In a recent interview, the icon revealed that her career move to Vegas was not initially met with positive support.

She shared:

"A lot of people, especially in the industry, they thought it was a very, very high risk. I remember hearing that the boat is going to sink again."

Hmm, very inneresting. In no way has her residency been anything like the Titanic — especially after $500 million in tickets sales over the past 12 years.

She continued:

"You take chances and you go for it. And you know what? I'm more than glad that we did it."

Not to mention that the success of her residency was the predecessor to fellow prima donnas Britney Spears and Mariah Carey's successful Vegas shows.

The Canadian native seems humbled by the idea that she inspired her peers to make the bold move to Sin City.

She explained:

"I don't want to say I'm responsible for any of those wonderful things. But, I'm very happy."

LOVES it! Nonetheless, the chart-topper confirmed that her return to the stage is all thanks to her manager/husband.

She noted:

"It was René'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 27, and more importantly having René there with me. Thank you for giving me this time I needed to spend with my family."

Tissues, anyone?!

We're so thrilled for Celine and her whole family. Let us know if you need someone to rehearse with — WE KID!
