The show does go on. Céline Dion has resumed her residency show at Caesars Palace with performance dates through until June 4th. She started the week with a 15 hour day of interviews to promote her upcoming tour in Quebec, France and Belgium. This was also the first time she has spoken about the passing of her husband René Angélil.
The lyrics of the song are similar to how I imagine Céline may feel about returning to show business after such a deep loss “Inside my heart is breaking, My make-up may be flaking, But my smile still stays on”. Her voice has a different tonality, in some ways sounding more edgy and raw, also more delicate, but still as beautiful as always. I do wonder what role René had in the choosing of this song, if any.
Céline will perform her new single “The Show Must Go On” together with Lindsey at the Billboard Music Awards, where she will also be honoured with the Icon Award. The Billboard Music Awards air live Sunday, May 22 at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC and CTV.
