Canadian Singer and Entrepreneur–Celine Dion who took a year career break to care for her ill husband Rene Angelil is back on stage.
The superstar vocalist made a big appearance on stage Thursday at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum in Las Vegas, that’s her first show since her announcement of taking care of her husband, 73-year-old Rene Angelil, who is battling throat cancer.
“Thank you for all your love,” Celine tweeted after the show. “Tonight was not a new day, tonight was not really a new show. Tonight was a new beginning.”
In December, Angelil, 72, had surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his throat, which has led to a ‘very difficult and stressful time,’ Dion said in a statement last year;
“I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children, I also want to apologise to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support.”
According to the 47-year-old singer, she was inspired by her husband to come back on stage.
The couple met when Dion was still just a teenager. They then embarked on a romantic relationship when she was 19-year-old and Angelil was 45.
The singer firstly retired from performing in 1999 when her husband was battling throat cancer.
The pair currently live in Las Vegas with their three children.
