StreeXB Global Talent SearchCeline Dion will be back in Vegas after caring for her husband

The Canadian singer is back.

However, the unfortunate circumstance surrounding why she left Vegas in the first place is still at large.

She’s been at the side of her husband, René Angélil, who has been battling with throat cancer.

You would think that after all that, Celine Dion would not be able to go back to singing. Dion defies all odds and stays courageous as she goes back to Vegas to do her show. Don’t get her wrong, she wanted to prioritize her family and stay with her husband, but he then told her to go back to what she loves to do. He wants her to return to singing and Dion is honoring his request. This couple is so brave and are fighting to keep their love alive.

Now, after caring for her husband, René Angélil, 73, who continues to battle throat cancer, she’s returning to the Strip for another extended run that starts Aug. 27. That, too, was the right choice, she says — because Angelil insisted his wife return to what she loves.

“I didn’t want to be here at first, I don’t need it. Don’t get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities,” Dion, 47, tells USA TODAY.

“But René really gave me a gift,” she says. “All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I’ve got this. For now. When it hits me, it’s going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we’re fine. I’ll take care of our kids. You’ll watch us from another spot.”



What comes through clearly is that her partner of many decades — Dion met Angélil when she was 12, and he later became her manager and, in 1994, her husband — is battling for his life. After a series of procedures in Boston hospitals, he is now living at the family’s Las Vegas home. He has been fed intravenously for two years, Dion says.

The past months have been filled with many emotional conversations between Dion and the man she calls “the only boyfriend I’ve ever had.” The singer says her default approach is to be strong, but sometimes Angélil “needs something more sensitive than that, more than just positivity. Sometimes he just wants me to enter into a different place with him.”
