Céline Dion, who has rarely appeared in public in recent years, walked the red carpet in New York and gave a speech.

Céline Dion (56) has returned to the red carpet. The singer appeared with her son René-Charles Angélil (23) at a screening of her new documentary “I Am: Celine Dion” in New York City. In the Prime Video film, she gives an insight into her life and her struggle with a rare neurological disease, stiff person syndrome (SPS).

On the red carpet, Dion shone in an all-white look consisting of a long skirt and an elegant long-sleeved blouse decorated with a bow. She combined this with a silver belt, matching bracelets and earrings. René-Charles opted for a black suit, which he wore with a white shirt and dark tie. The 23-year-old and twins Nelson and Eddy (13) are the children of Dion and her late husband René Angélil (1942-2016).

Since being diagnosed with SPS in 2022, Céline Dion has largely withdrawn from the public eye. However, she made a surprise appearance at the 2024 Grammy Awards in February. She received a standing ovation when she took the stage to present the award for Album of the Year to Taylor Swift (34).

Thank you very much,” she said.

Your never-ending love and support has brought me to this moment.” Dion also declared, apparently with tears in her eyes: “I can’t believe how lucky I am to have my friends in my life.” And: “I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for being part of my journey. This film is my love letter to each and every one of you.” She hopes to “see everyone again very soon,” she concluded to a standing ovation from the audience. “I Am: Celine Dion” will be shown from June 25th.
