Celine Dion weeps on stage at husband’s memorial
Celine Dion couldn't hold back tears as she honored her late husband and manager, Rene Angelil at a touching memorial service at the Colosseum (Caesar's Palace) in Las Vegas, last Wednesday night.
"Let me start by saying good evening good friends. Rene, the love of my life, would be so happy to know we are here together. I feel the love in this room," Celine told crowds.
"This is my home away from home. At the same time I'm supposed to feel extremely comfortable being home and right now I'm not sure how comfortable I feel."
Getting emotional as she remembered her husband of more than 20 years, she continued: "René never hated anyone. Is it possible someone loves everybody? I don't think so. But he never told me a person he disliked… Time was precious to him. He loved life so much, so very much."
René died on January 14, two days before his 74th birthday, following a long battle with throat cancer. Reports confirm that the Canadian songstress nursed her music manager throughout his treatment and she recounted how the pair would sit together and watch 'The Price is Right', with René crying with joy every time someone won.
Celine ended her tribute with: "Rene, I love you so much. Merci. Goodnight."
