After dedicating "every ounce of [her] strength" to her husband's health through his cancer scare, Celine Dion is plotting her return to her Las Vegas residency, her rep tells People.

Seventy-three-year-old Rene Angelil, Celine's husband of more than 20 years, was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 1999 and had a tumor removed from his throat in Dec. 2013. Last summer, Celine, 46, put all of her show business activities on hold so that she could focus on her family of five, but the singer's rep tells People that she will resume her residency at Caesars Palace's Colosseum in late August.

This wasn't the first hiatus Celine took from work to concentrate on her family. She took a two-year break from her career at the time of Rene's original diagnosis 16 years ago.

Celine and Rene are parents to Rene-Charles, 14, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 4.

"It is very emotional for me and I'm anticipating the emotions to grow even more as the date gets closer," Celine recently told People about her impending return.
