Celine Dion's Son Rene-Charles Angelil Gives Speech at His Dad's Funeral (Video)

Celine Dion‘s nearly 15-year-old son Rene-Charles Angelil gives a speech to honor his late father at his funeral held on Friday afternoon (January 22) at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, Canada.

“Fifteen years is not a long time for a son to get to know his father. You had a busy life, but we were communicating through golf, hockey, poker, and smoked meat,” Rene-Charles started his speech.

“And a lot of other wonderful food. Bonding more and more as time went by. You left me now with enough good memories of you to share with my younger brothers [Nelson and Eddy]. As they grow older without you being around, I’ll make sure to pass on what I’ve learned from you,” Rene-Charles continued. “You are a tough act to follow, but with your help everything is going to be fine. Dad, I promise you here that we are all going to live up to your standards.”

Celine Dion Speaks Out at Rene Angelil's Visitation

Celine Dion is speaking out for the first time since her husband Rene Angelil‘s death.

The 47-year-old singer greeted thousands of mourners who showed up to Rene‘s open casket visitation on Thursday (January 21) at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, Canada.

“The support we’ve received has been such a blessing,” Celine told People.

Celine was joined by her 15-year-old son Rene-Charles and her step-sons Patrick and Jean-Pierre in the receiving line.

Several people opened up to the mag about why they waited for more than three hours to meet Celine and pay their respects.

“I did tell Celine, ‘thank you for being here’ because she’s receiving everyone, one person at a time, and she’s taking more of her time. That’s why we kind of froze for hours before getting inside: It was worth it because it wasn’t like in-and-out, in-and-out – she actually took the time; she shook our hand, and some actually even kissed her,” one well-wisher from Montreal said. “It was very personal words, even the eye contact. She was very sincere.”

Rene‘s funeral will take place on Friday (January 22) at 3pm.
