Celine Dion Dedicates A Moving Performance Of 'My Heart Will Go On' To Her Late Husband

"You will always be in my heart."

Thursday's two-hour finale of ABC's summer music series Greatest Hits featured songs spanning all the years previously featured, from 1980 to 2005. 

One of the night's most memorable performances came from none other than Celine Dion, who delivered a powerful rendition of her iconic Titanic anthem "My Heart Will Go On" from Montreal.

We get chills any time Celine performs this song, but last night's version was particularly moving, as she dedicated it to her late husband Rene Angelil, who passed away in January of this year.


"'My Heart Will Go On' has been an important song in my life for nearly two decades," Celine explained. "Now, and tonight, I'm very honored to sing it for all of you — and for the love of my life. Rene Angelil, you will always be in my heart."

The packed audience held up the lights from their phones as Celine proceeded to belt out the 1997 classic, which took on a special meaning following her deeply personal dedication.

Celine even offered the microphone to the crowd at one point, uniting the entire auditorium through music. It's an amazing thing to witness, and really, we wouldn't expect anything less from such a legend.

You certainly couldn't put on a show called Greatest Hits without her.
