Celine Dion starred in one of the most emotional moments during the Grammy Awards gala. The singer was in charge of presenting the album of the year category.
“When I say I’m happy to be here, I say it from the heart.”Dion said after taking the stage to loud applause. Dion has been largely out of the public eye while she focuses on her health.
“Those who have been fortunate enough to be at the Grammy Awards should never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music brings to our lives and to people around the world,” Dion said Sunday.
He recalled that the album of the year award was given to him 27 years ago for Diana Ross and Sting.
The award presented tonight by Celine Dion went to Taylor Swift by “Midnights”. It marked Swift’s fourth Grammy of the year, making her the artist with the most wins in that category.
Celine Dion’s present after being diagnosed with rigid person syndrome
Dion shared in 2022 that she had been diagnosed with stiff person syndrome, a condition, she said, that doesn’t allow her to “sing like I’m used to.”
The disorder is “a rare, progressive syndrome that affects the nervous system, specifically the brain and spinal cord,” according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
“Although we are still learning about this rare condition, we now know that this is what was causing all the spasms I have had”Dion said at the time. “Unfortunately, these spasms affect all aspects of my daily life, sometimes causing me difficulty walking and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing as I am used to.”
The singer recently announced that she will chronicle her journey in a new documentary titled “I Am: Celine Dion”. He said he is optimistic about being able to perform again.
“These past few years have been a huge challenge for me, the journey from discovering my condition to learning to live with it and manage it, but not letting it define me,” she recently wrote on her Instagram page. “As the road to resuming my acting career continues, I have realized how much I have missed being able to see my fans.”
He added that he wanted to “document” this part of his life through his film, “raise awareness about this little-known condition and help other people who share this diagnosis”.
