It goes without saying that Celine Dion is one of the greatest artists of our time.
She's won over two-hundred and fifty awards including 5 Grammys, 7 American Music Awards, 7 Billboard Awards, 12 World Music Awards, 20 JUNOs, and counting. She's sold over 200 million albums worldwide and her long-running Las Vegas show is the most successful residency of all time.
The Canadian singer's talent is unmatched and we were reminded of that when she took the stage at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards. Celine transported us back to 1997 with a chill-inducing rendition of one of her most popular hits, My Heart Will Go On. The vocalist sang the song to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the iconic movie Titanic.
Celine donned an angelic Stephane Rolland Haute Couture white gown to deliver the powerful performance under a magical crystal chandelier all the while clips of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack and Rose played in the background.
After her performance Celine confessed that she had to hold back tears the entire time. Honestly, so did we.
"Being a part of a classic is a very big, big honour and especially being here tonight. After 20 years you might think and feel like, ugh, I’m going to sing the Titanic again. But when nights like tonight happen and everybody from six years old to eight years old to fifteen years old, they were not even born, and they were singing with me, all singing with James Cameron, James Horner, it was emotional. I was like, “Hold your tears, hold your tears,” said Celine.
"It’s something that I will never forget so thanks to the crowd," she added.
It's certainly a night that us fans won't soon forget either. Watch the clip of the emotional performance below and get ready for goosebumps:
