Celine Dion Appears On Stage Hours After Her Mom's Death

Celine Dion is currently on her Courage World Tour and she showed off a lot of courage during her latest show.

The 51-year-old singer performed just hours after her mom’s death on Friday night (January 17) at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Fla.

“I’m pretty sure that you heard the news about my mom passing away early this morning,” Celine told the crowd. “But I’m doing okay.”

“My mom was 92. She was ill for quite a while. And we knew she wouldn’t be with us long. Two days ago, we got a call from the nurses who were taking care of her so well, saying that her time was coming soon. Very soon. So last night, I joined my brothers and sisters in Montreal and I spent the evening at her bedside,” she added. “We told stories. We sang songs. We hugged each other. And we said our goodbyes. We are pretty sure that mom waited for us to be all together before [she passed].”

Celine will be touring around North America through April 27.
