Celine Dion Thanks Fans, Family For Support: ‘I Cannot Believe How Fortunate I Am’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Celine Dion got emotional as she thanked fans and family for their support at the premiere of her documentary, I AM: CELINE DION. 

“This is, by far, the biggest crowd I’ve had in a few years,” the singer said while introducing the movie to a crowd in New York. “I miss that.”

I AM: CELINE DION shows her battle with stiff-person syndrome. Dion shared her diagnosis in 2022, when the condition’s symptoms caused her to have to start canceling shows. 

Dion thanked her sons — René-Charles Angelil, 23, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 13 — for their “daily love and support.”

She also thanked her fans, saying, “Your presence in my journey has been a gift beyond measure. Your never-ending love and support over all these years have delivered me to this moment.”

“I cannot believe how fortunate I am to have my fans in my life. Thank you,” Dion continued. “Thank you to all of you from the bottom of my heart for being part of my journey. This movie is my love letter to each of you.”


I AM: CELINE DION “gives us a raw and honest behind-the-scenes look at the iconic superstar’s struggle with a life-altering illness,” per a statement from the singer’s team. “Serving as a love letter to her fans, this inspirational documentary highlights the music that has guided her life while also showcasing the resilience of the human spirit.”

“A lot of people in the world are suffering or alone are wondering, and I hope that this documentary gives an opportunity to people, first of all, to let them know that I am here as a mother as an artist, as a woman as an ambassador in a way of I want to help people,” Dion told The Hollywood Reporter of the documentary.
