As a tribute to René Angélil, the performance opened with a touching video that chronicled personal and milestone moments in René’s life from his early days of childhood, to managing a superstar recording artist, to being a loving husband and father.

“I understood that my career was in a way was his masterpiece, his song, his symphony,” expressed Celine. “The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly. I realized that if he ever left us I would have to continue without him, for him.”
