Popular Canadian singer, Celine Dion Releases emotional new song about her late husband René.
The 48-year-old musical icon lost her husband René Angélil to illness.
Nine months after her husband’s death, Céline Dion has released a new song about the grief process and putting her life back together after the loss.

The song is pretty simple and presents a positive and optimistic outlook on life and grief.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly this summer about the song, Dion applauded Pink for the song.
“She’s a genuine person, and [it was] so generous of her to take the time to write a song for me during the most difficult time of mine.”
“People have a tendency to send me really sad songs, and we do want to sing the touching songs.
“But life is beautiful, and I really want to believe that René has a life after his life, that he doesn’t suffer anymore.”
