Celine Dion fights back tears during her documentary debut


In a new heartfelt documentary, musical icon Celine Dion bravely open up about her recent health journey.

The documentary titled “I Am: Celine Dion” shows a look inside her on-going battle with SPS (Stiff Person Syndrome). SPS is a rare neurological disorder that causes painful spasms and muscle stiffness. The “I’m Alive” singer announced her diagnosis in 2022.

During the New York screening of the Amazon MGM-produced film on Monday (June 17), the 56-year-old singer tearfully thanked her fans for standing by her side when she unfortunately had to cancel her Las Vegas residency and world tour. “Thank you to all of you, from the bottom of my heart, for being part of my journey. This movie is my love letter to each of you,” the “Power of Love” singer told the audience at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. “I hope to see you all again very, very soon.

According to a press release from Amazon MGM Studios, the film will also “highlight the music that has guided [Céline’s] life while also showcasing the resilience of the human spirit.”

The film is set to be released later this month.
