Tuesday evening, it was Céline Dion's return to Montreal since the death of her mother, Thérèse Dion, on January 17. The Quebec diva has stepped onto the stage at the Bell Center, just as she will do this evening, to offer the two performances that she had to cancel last October 4th and 5th following an ugly virus that had attacked her throat .
Despite her mourning, Céline Dion once again showed her professionalism, but above all her strength by delivering a show that was both intense and touching in front of a crowded crowd who spent the evening declaring their love to her. After opening the show with two of her great successes It's All Coming Back To Me Now and In Another World, the singer finally spoke to her fans with all the authenticity that we know.
What also brings me to Montreal is a less happy event ... As you know, this week, with my family, in complete privacy, we will pay tribute to this strong and so important woman in my life ... Thank you for all your words. I know that mom was also the mom of many Quebecers.
she said, referring to the funeral to be held in Laval on Thursday, February 20. However, it is important to note that the service will not be open to the public. The Tanguay-Dion family announced early February due to safety reasons, as indicated on the Maman Dion Foundation website.
It is therefore no surprise that Céline Dion dedicated her show to her mother. "René gave me all the tools to do this job, my mother gave me strength and courage." With these words, the singer from Charlemagne stressed that she wanted to give the crowd a good evening in order to make her mother proud, who undoubtedly watches over her with her late father. The song I'm Alive was therefore perfect for resuming the show after her touching speech.
Once again, all our thoughts are with Céline and her loved ones.
