Before Celine Dion was an international superstar, Celine Dion told the CBC that was her dream. She looks the same now as she did when she was 15 in that 1983 interview.


Celine Dion’s surprise appearance at the Grammys!

Celine Dion has been suffering from a very rare neurological disorder called Stiff Person Syndrome. It has caused her to have uncontrollable muscle spasms, and it can affect the ways she walks, talks, and sings. Therefore, she has made very few public appearances over the last several years.

However, yesterday, she made a surprise appearance at the Grammys to present Album of the Year to Taylor Swift.

As soon as Dion’s name was announced by host Trevor Noah, the audience of her peers stood up and cheered the singer, who was presented with that award by Sting and Diana Ross 27 years ago.

She told her fellow musicians, “Thank you all. I love you right back. When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it from my heart. Those who have been blessed enough to be here at the Grammy Awards must never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music brings to our lives and to people all around the world.”

And hopefully, soon, she will once again be able to share her music with the world on tour.

But until then, we will be getting the documentary I Am: Celine Dion about her health struggles over the last few years on Prime Video later this year.

Celine Dion is one of the most beloved singers of our time. And for the last few years, she has not been able to entertain her fans because of an illness.

The singer suffers from Stiff Person Syndrome, and it makes it painful for her to perform. Even though she really wants to.

So in the upcoming Prime Video documentary, which was filmed over a year, we will see what she has been going through.

“This last couple of years has been such a challenge for me, the journey from discovering my condition to learning how to live with and manage it, but not to let it define me,” said Dion. “As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realized how much I have missed it, of being able to see my fans. During this absence, I decided I wanted to document this part of my life, to try to raise awareness of this little-known condition, to help others who share this diagnosis.”

The doc will stream later this year.


Celine Dion cancels her tour
May 26th, 2023 under Celine Dion. [ Comments: none ]

In April 2022, Celine Dion postponed her tour because of a debilitating illness. That rare neurological disease is known as Stiff-Person Syndrome.

Since then, we haven’t gotten an update on her condition. But, today, we did.

With a sense of tremendous disappointment, Celine Dion’s Courage World Tour today announced the cancellation of all remaining dates currently on sale for 2023 and 2024. As the world has emerged from the pandemic, Celine has continued to be treated for a diagnosed medical condition that prevents her from performing. Celine is working hard on her recovery, but at this time is unable to successfully prepare for and perform the remainder of the tour, which was scheduled to run from August 26, 2023 in Amsterdam through October 4, 2023 in Helsinki; then continuing from March 6, 2024 in Prague through April 22, 2024 in London. We do have every hope that someday soon, Celine will be able to come to all of these cities in Europe to perform for her amazing fans, but that time simply is not now.

“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%. It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again. I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!” said Celine.’

Celine had completed the first 52 dates of the Courage World Tour in North America before the pandemic emerged and paused the tour in March 2020. In early 2021, when the entertainment industry was still working under tight COVID restrictions, Celine filmed her first motion picture, Love Again, co-starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Sam Heughan. Since then, Celine has revealed that she has been diagnosed with a rare condition called Stiff Person’s Syndrome, which causes severe and persistent muscle spasms, and which has prevented her from performing. Celine’s medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.

I hope that they get it under control soon, so that she can go back to doing what she loves to do and we can watch and hear her do it.


Celine Dion tearfully postpones her European dates

Celine Dion was supposed to begin her European tour in June, but she announced today in a heartfelt video that she has to postpone or cancel those dates. That is because she is still suffering from health issues and cannot give her 100% at a show.

The singer knows her fans deserve her all, and as soon as her body is free of spasms and her doctors tell her she can perform again, she will.

Hopefully, Dion’s body will continue to improve, and she will be back on the road, making fans happy again soon.
