Celine Dion Talks About Her Sick Husband, And How He's The Only Reason She's Prepping To Perform Again!
That's the Power of Love!
René Angélil is recovering from throat cancer surgery, and when the Canadian singer does take the stage again, she wants to make sure he sees it!
"If there's going to be one person in the theater that night it's going to be him. It's going to be for him. I want to make him see me strong again."
Celine's husband-slash-manager was the reason she took a leave of absence from her residency at Caesars Palace, and now, he's the reason she's getting back in her groove at the end of August.
"The reason we did not come back before was because I wasn't emotionally ready to come back. My husband and my family needed me, they still do."
The vocal powerhouse explained that she's willing to do anything for him, even if that means performing again.
"He wants me strong. He wants to see me again because I'm his favorite singer. So, he wants me out there, and I have to say that I'm ready."
The songbird explains that while battling with cancer and fighting for his health, her husband never stopped working at their relationship or her career.
"Knowing that he has a lot of weight on his shoulders, his focus is still show business. It's very touching for me because he wants me to have a good time. It's not selfish, it's like, 'I'm with you and I want you back. I want you strong. I want to see you perform again.'"
Near, far, or wherever you are on August 27, Celine will be on stage in Sin City, performing for an audience, but most importantly, for her number one fan, René.
