Celine Dion, arguably one of the best recording artists of our time, is receiving a flood of support from her supporters and celebrity colleagues after the deaths of both her husband and brother.
“René Angélil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” a representative of Dion’s family said. “The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment.”
Dion’s husband died on Jan. 14 after battling throat cancer and just days later, on Jan. 16, Dion’s website announced that her brother, Daniel, 59, also died after losing his battle to brain, tongue and throat cancer.
Even though the “My Heart Will Go On” singer has not spoken publicly, her peers in mainstream entertainment have sent Dion messages on Twitter vowing to pray for her and her family.
