Six years after cancer death
Celine Dion misses her dead husband
Celine Dion and René Angélil have been married for more than 20 years. The music manager died of cancer in 2016. On the occasion of his death, the singer remembers her husband on Instagram.
René Angélil (1942-2016), Celine Dion’s husband, died six years ago of complications from cancer. On the anniversary of his death, the singer explains how much she still misses him. “I would be lying if I said I was fine,” writes the world star for a photo on Instagram showing Angélil. She thinks of him at least a hundred times, “because in the echo of my voice I hear your words, just like if you were there,” Dion continues. “I miss you.”
The “My Heart Will Go On” singer and René Angélil were married from 1994 until his death from cancer in 2016. The manager had guided Dion from the start of her career and propelled her into an international superstar. The couple had three sons, in 2001 René-Charles was born, in 2010 the twins Nelson and Eddy.
A few months after Angélil’s death, she declared in the US media that she had lost the love of her life. Three years later, in an interview with the broadcaster ABC, she said that the death of her husband was a big change for her. Being a single mother alongside a full-time job as a singer is not easy. In addition, she first had to learn to make her own decisions and accept new projects without having Angélil by her side.
Last year, on the fifth anniversary of death, Dion also wrote a touching post on her behalf and that of her children. “René, it’s been five years… There isn’t a day that we don’t think of you,” Dion wrote. “Now more than ever, we ask you to guide us, protect us and continue to watch over us. And we pray that you will shine your love on the whole world, on all those who are going through incredibly difficult times right now .” Angélil will always be in the hearts and lives of his wife and children.
