Singer Celine Dion she is returning to the stage again for her husband.
Dion, 47, took an indefinite leave to tend her ailing husband and as she comes back she said she she will have one person in her mind, her husband, Rene Angelil, reported People magazine.
“If there’s going to be one person in the theater that night it’s going to be him,” she told reporters backstage at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, referring to her return to the Colosseum stage at Caesars Palace on August 27.
“It’s going to be for him. I want to make him see me strong again.”
The Canadian songstress has had multiple opportunities to perform since she abruptly postponed her highly successful show in last August, but she was just couldn’t do it, until now.
“The reason we did not come back before was because I wasn’t emotionally ready to come back. My husband and my family needed me, they still do.”
Dion said her husband is “working really hard on his health” as he recovers from throat cancer surgery. Seeing her on stage again seems to be a part of the healing process.
“He wants me strong. He wants to see me again because I’m his favorite singer. So, he wants me out there, and I have to say that I’m ready,” Dion said.
