Given the recent tragic events of losing her husband and brother to cancer, the lyrics for this song take on new meaning. It’s a bit heartbreaking.

Celine Dion recorded “Hymn” for the animated film, Snowtime! which recently debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. The heartfelt family film is based on the 1984 film La Guerre Des Tuques (The Dog Who Stopped the War).

“I did discover the movie because of my son, Rene Charles,” Dion recalls in a behind-the-scenes interview. “It was pretty touching. What a beautiful story!”

The music video premiered online Wednesday night as the memorial for René Angéli took place in Las Vegas at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace. Check out the clip below. As always, Dion’s vocals are divine.

After a long battle with cancer, René Angélil passed away on Thursday, January 14. Celine Dion broke her silence Friday to speak out about her tragic loss. The 47-year-old Grammmy winner posted a touching tribute to her late husband on Facebook.

“He will be remembered as a gentle man, generous and kind, an unprecedented visionary, a modern Pygmalion, a Renaissance man. All who had the privilege of knowing him and of working closely with him, whether personally or professionally, salute a leader and a man of great intelligence and wisdom,” an excerpt from the statement.

The funeral service will be held Friday, January 22 at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal- the same church where the two married 21 years ago. Dion also revealed a Celebration of Life will be held in Las Vegas on February 3 at the Caesars Palace Colosseum. Read the full post below.

Our condolences, once again, go out to Dion and her family during this heartbreaking time.

René Angelil, the husband and one-time manager of Celine Dion, passed away at his Las Vegas home on Thursday morning. He was 73-years-old at the time.

“Rene Angelil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” the rep said in a statement. “The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment.”

Angélil battled three bouts of cancer. He was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998. After his health had improved, his cancer returned in 2014, at which time he retired as Dion’s manager.

René is survived by his wife Celine and their three children, René-Charles, 14, and 5-year-old twin boys Nelson and Eddy. Angelil also has three older children from previous marriages. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

Celine Dion Covers Adele’s Hello In Las Vegas

Celine Dion recently returned to her Las Vegas residency after caring for her ailing husband for several months. I have to admit, I’ve enjoyed the Canadian chanteuse popping up everywhere recently. Absence does make the heart go fonder.

The 47-year-old singer rang in the New Year on stage in Caesars Palace with her adoring fans. With “Hello” being one of the biggest hits of 2015, it’s only fitting Dion paid homage to Adele.

Not surprisingly, Celine hit all the high notes with ease. What was surprising though, was the little twang, or should I say French twang, she added. It was a bit random, but oh well, it’s Celine. She’s kooky that way.

Check out Dion perform “Hello” below, where she ad-libbed some of the lyrics.

After being relatively out of the spotlight for the past couple of years to take care of her husband, Celine Dion has been popping up everywhere as of late. She delivered an emotional performance in honor of Paris at the American Music Awards and recently paid homage to Frank Sinatra for Grammy’s all-star tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes. To all this, I say welcome back Celine. You’ve been missed.

The 47-year-old Canadian chanteuse dazzled during Michael Buble’s annual Christmas special. She gave a gorgeous rendition of “O Holy Night” and then joined Buble to give a rousing cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over).” Her signature powerful vocals were on display for both numbers. Check them both out below.

Heading into the 43rd annual American Music Awards, The Weeknd and Taylor Swift led the pack with six nominations apiece. The “Hills” singer walked away with two awards while the “Blank Space” chanteuse snagged three statues. Other multiple winners of the night were One Direction, Nicki Minaj and Florida Georgia Line.

As with most music awards show, the telecast was all about the performances. Jennifer Lopez kicked the night off by performing a slowed-down version of her hit “Waiting For Tonight” before pulling an insane dance routine to a mashup featuring the year’s biggest hits. Girl slayed it and then some.

Other memorable performances were Demi Lovato joining Alanis Morissette on “You Oughta Know,” Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor making out to “Marvin Gaye,” Ariana Grande performing “Focus” without her signature high ponytail, Pentatonix with their Star Wars tribute and Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber each singing a medley of their hits. By far though, the emotional high point was Celine Dion’s tribute to Paris. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Check out all the performances below and share your thoughts on your favorite AMA moment.

Christina Aguilera singing “This Little Piggy” as Britney Spears on The Tonight Show was absolutely sensational. As great as that was, Ariana Grande channeling the “Toxic” singer slays even more.

During a round of ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions,’ Grande sang “Mary Had A Little Lamb” as Brit and it was fantastic. She also performed “Wheels On The Bus” and “Can’t Feel My Face” as Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion respectively.

Speaking of The Weeknd hit song, Jimmy Fallon joined Grande on that track but he did it as Sting. The real Celine and former Police frontman should really consider recording “Can’t Feel My Face” for real. It could be a huge hit for them as well. Check out the hilarity below.

The time has finally arrived. It’s time to crown the Season 5 winner of The Voice? While the main purpose of tonight’s show is to reveal the results, there were plenty other highlights. I’m not even going to sugarcoat it. Lady Gaga’s surprise duet with Christina Aguilera on “Do What You Want” was epic. R. Kelly who? They harmonized beautifully, drank champagne and were overall FIERCE. These two need to head to the recording studio immediately. Check out that performance below, along with the others and the results.
