Iconic singer Celine Dion has been transparent about the difficult time she’s had mourning her late husband, music producer and talent manager René Angélil. He passed away five years ago from his battle with throat cancer.
Although the 53-year-old usually remains private about her personal life, she’s recently opened up in a Today Show interview about how life is without her late husband, her love for him and how she’s still feeling the loss of René Angélil.
Something that did help Celine Dion distract herself while grieving Angélil, was the singer’s Las Vegas residency. “Vegas has given us, my family and I, an opportunity for me to be a mom, for them to be kids, for me to perform for my fans and to practice my passion and every night come home,” she said.
“That is rare, so I really feel that Vegas has given me motherhood and the best as an artist, the best of both worlds,” she said during the interview. Luckily, the singer has another residency kicking off this November.
