Céline Dion was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease in 2022. The singer also talks about the symptoms in a new documentary. Now the star was at the film premiere in New York.

The singer Céline Dion (56), who suffers from a rare autoimmune disease, was celebrated on Monday evening (local time) at the New York premiere of the documentary “I Am: Céline Dion”. The singer appeared at the event alongside her eldest son René-Charles Angélil (23). In a speech, the visibly moved mother of three thanked her fans for their support. “This is a love letter to each and every one of you,” Dion said tearfully about the film project. She hopes to be back on stage soon.

The Canadian-born singer announced in December 2022 that she had been diagnosed with so-called stiff person syndrome, a rare neurological disorder. The disease can cause muscle cramps anywhere in the body, causing her hands or feet to freeze, she said in a recent TV interview. She has problems walking and singing. The “My Heart Will Go On” singer had to cancel all dates of her “Courage World Tour” in Europe planned for 2023 and 2024.

With the documentary by director Irene Taylor, Dion wants to give an insight into her life and raise awareness of the little-known disease. She is fighting the disease with physiotherapy, vocal training and medication. The streaming provider Prime Video is releasing the film on June 25th. With more than 250 million albums sold worldwide, Dion is one of the most successful musicians of her generation.
