Songstress Celine Dion is morning the loss of her husband and business partner, Rene Angelil of Montreal Quebec, Canada.  Well wishes have inundated social media and the airwaves. 

After a long battle with throat cancer Angelil encouraged Celine to resume her residency at the Colosseum in Las Vegas in May 2015.  The announcement came just over a year after announcing she was putting her career on hold to dedicate her time to helping her husband.  Dion returned to Vegas in August 2015. 

Celine said on Thursday, “But René really gave me a gift,” she added. “All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I’ve got this. For now. When it hits me, it’s going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we’re fine. I’ll take care of our kids. You’ll watch us from another spot.”

Angelil was 73-years-old
