Celine Dion new song since husband’s death
Pop queen Celine Dion announced her first new song on Wednesday since the death of her husband and manager Rene Angelil as she mourns him through music.
According to her website, “Encore Un Soir,” which means “One More Night,” will come out in several days as the first track of her next album,
The song is an homage to her late husband, the French celebrity site Tele Star said.
The song will come out on May 24 as Dion opens nine concerts in Paris, the magazine Paris Match reported.
The bilingual star — one of the most successful artists of all time with more than 220 million albums sold — is also due to perform Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards in her adopted home of Las Vegas.
Angelil died in January at age 73 following a long struggle with throat cancer.
The pop Superstar returned to her concert residency in Las Vegas six weeks after her husband’s death in keeping with his wishes.
In an interview broadcast Wednesday with ABC television’s “Good Morning America,” Dion said that she thought of her late husband when singing “The Show Must Go On.”
She said that in their last conversation, she told him not to be concerned about her or their three children together.
“I started to talk to him and I said, you know what, I want you to just go in peace,” she said. “I want you to not worry.”
Dion’s brother Daniel died of the same type of cancer two days later.
“I said to myself, ‘For his birthday, my husband came and got my brother because my brother was too weak to fly on his own,’” she said.
