In a heart-breaking tribute to her husband of 20 years, Celine Dion sang ‘The First Time I Ever I Saw Your face’, as home videos of her family played in the background at her concert in Vegas.
Smiling bravely through his pain, cancer-stricken René Angélil offered a gentle wave to fans of his wife, Celine Dion.
‘I didn’t want to be here at first, I don’t need it,’ Celine explained. ‘Don’t get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities. But Rene really gave me a gift.’
According to the National Enquirer, Celine was hoping that Rene would be able to sit front row when she returned on August 27, but he was not well enough.
