The songstress first opened up about her condition in December 2022. The documentary is focused on the singer’s life with the condition and how she is striking a balance between her personal and professional life. On Jan. 30 Dion spoke about the documentation of her journey. Check out the complete details of this story.
Celine Dion said the last couple of years has been such a challenge for her
The 55-year-old said in the statement, “This last couple of years has been such a challenge for me, the journey from discovering my condition to learning how to live with and manage it, but not to let it define me.”
Moreover, she continues, “As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realized how much I have missed it, being able to see my fans. During this absence, I decided I wanted to document this part of my life, to try to raise awareness of this little-known condition, to help others who share this diagnosis.”
The documentary which will be directed by Irene Taylor will focus on the “My Heart Will Go On” singer’s joinery of balancing her career along with her worsening health. The documentary is acquired by Amazon MGM Studios but the release date hasn’t been disclosed yet.
The announcement comes months after Celine’s sister Claudette Dion gave a heartbreaking update on her health on the outlet 7 Jours.
“She doesn’t have control over her muscles,” Claudette said. “What breaks my heart is that she’s always been disciplined. She’s always worked hard.’”
She added, “It’s true that in both our dreams and hers, the goal is to return to the stage. In what capacity? I don’t know.”
The singer first shared her health update in May of last year following the cancellation of her Courage World Tour due to her condition. Moreover, she said to focus on spending quality time with her and late husband René Angélil, sons René-Charles, 22, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 13.
She said on Instagram in December 2022,”And I have hope that I am on the road to recovery.”
Needless to say, her family love along with great medical support is working great in favour of her.
