Since her return to Vegas, Céline Dion has paid tribute to her late husband René Angélil onstage with their children and her golden cast of his hand.
Additional footage surfaced of Dion’s return performance and shows the “My Heart Will Go On” singer crying mid-concert after performing “All By Myself” for the first time since Angelil’s passing.
It appears that the lyrics from her hit single cued her emotions that evening. The heartfelt message of the song still resonates with the singer two decades after its 1996 release.
“Don’t want to be … all by myself,” Dion belts out before covering her eyes with her hands.
While Dion was getting choked up after reciting those fateful words, audience members cheered her on as the music continued to play. The songstress took her time finishing the song.
During her first appearance since her husband’s passing, Dion was overcome with emotion more than once.
Earlier in the evening, there was a video montage that showed intimate moments between the songstress and her husband/manager. The screen showed footage of the Dion and Angélil’s wedding as well as the moments leading up to the delivery of one of their children. The couple had three sons together.
