I must have been hiding under a rock. I’m a fervent Celine Dion fan and have always wanted to see her singing live. I heard that she wasn’t playing Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas but didn’t really follow up on why and for how long.
I knew that her husband, Rene Angelil, had battled cancer before but I wasn’t aware of the seriousness of his medical condition until I found the video included below.
My heart is sad for Celine and her family.
I hope the best for them and wish for a recovery.
Celine Dion’s husband, Rene Angelil, is struggling through throat cancer treatment, and Celine recently opened up in a tearful interview to speak about their living life “one day at a time.”
“We’re choosing to live.” Those simple words say everything that Celine has been willing to do for her husband, Rene, 74, who has been struggling with cancer since 1999. After initial treatments, a tumor was discovered in his throat years later, and he underwent a procedure to have it removed in 2013.
Since then, things have been a long, uphill battle for Rene, Celine and their three children. Now, Celine has taken on the duties of being Rene’s caretaker in regards to feeding him daily, and that constitutes work with a feeding tube. Celine has been open and honest about her fears of losing Rene, as he has been so instrumental in all aspects of her life. He championed her career.
For fans of Celine, they’re well aware that she has put her career on hiatus to play caretaker to her family, and because she herself was struggling with a throat issue in 2014. She hit pause on her Las Vegas residency in July of last year, and is planning to resume her show in August of 2015.
There is something delightfully weird about Celine. And no, that’s not an insult–it’s a compliment. Weird meaning spiritual/uncanny. Say what you will about some of her antics being steeped in different cultural understanding, and sub-culture of that culture, but the woman can sing like the best of songbirds.

“When I stopped performing, I wanted to be just a wife and a mother,” she says. And the Canadian songstress did just that, caring for her husband and the couple’s three sons – René-Charles, 14, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 4.
However, at Angélil’s urging, they began planning her comeback and continued to do so after they found out he was diagnosed with cancer for a third time.
Says Dion, tearing up: “He wants me to sing again, and I want to do this with him.”
Indeed Angélil – who remains unable to speak due to extensive throat surgery, has difficulty hearing because of past radiation treatments and eats three times a day through a feeding tube – will be her biggest fan at her debut.
“René will be in the audience,” says Dion, 46, about opening night. “I promise there will be high, happy notes, but it’s going to be very emotional for me.”
