Celine Dion Gets Emotional During René Angélil's Memorial Service

Celine Dion gets very emotional during a memorial service for her late husband René Angélil at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace on Wednesday (February 3) in Las Vegas, Nev.

“Let me start by saying good evening good friends. Rene, the love of my life, would be so happy to know we are here together. I feel the love in this room,” the 47-year-old entertainer told the crowd. “This is my home away from home. At the same time I’m supposed to feel extremely comfortable being home and right now I’m not sure how comfortable I feel.”

René never hated anyone. Is it possible someone loves everybody? I don’t think so. But he never told me a person he disliked. Time was precious to him. He loved life so much, so very much,” Celine added. The couple’s son Rene-Charles, 14, watched on as his mom gave her heartfelt speech.
