Celine Dion Remembers Her Late Husband Rene Angelil On Stage at the GRAMMYs in a Stunning Gown
By Leanne Aguilera
Celine Dion shared a sweet memory about her late husband René Angélil.
The 48-year-old Canadian singer took the stage at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday night to present the award for Song of the Year.
"Stevie Wonder once said, 'Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories," the beauty shared while wearing a stunning, high-slit black gown.
"I will never forget sitting with my husband Rene when "My Heart Will Go On" won the GRAMMY Award for Song of the Year 18 years ago," the five-time GRAMMY award winner reminisced. As the crowd erupted into an empathetic applause for Dion, she thanked them for their support.
Earlier tonight on the GRAMMYs red carpet,Dion opened up to ET's Nancy O'Dell at the live pre-show about Angélil's passing.
"We're doing really well, thank you for asking. There's days where I feel it's been three years and then there's days it feels like it's it's not happening," she shared. "He's always with me and I know that he's very proud."
Angelil was 73 at the time of his death and had been battling throat cancer for several years.
Dion added that she's throwing herself back into her work saying, "I can't stop. I'm still doing shows in Vegas, I'm going back on tour, I did a tour last year in Europe. So, this year, this Summer actually I'm going back to twenty-six cities actually to do some shows in Berlin."
During another pre-GRAMMYs interview with ET's Cameron Mathison, Dion adorably fangirled over Lady Gaga.
"Congratulations on the Super Bowl, you're amazing," Dion gushed to mother monster. "I love you!"
The two divas stunned on the carpet in fashion-forward but revealing looks, with Dion rocking a low-cut emerald Zuhair Murad gown while Gaga flaunted her new back tattoo in a black leather ensemble that just barely covered all of her assets.
