Celine Dion remembers her late husband René Angélil on stage at the GRAMMYs in a stunning gown


Celine Dion shared a sweet memory about her late husband René Angélil.

The 48-year-old Canadian singer took the stage at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday night to present the award for Song of the Year.

"Stevie Wonder once said, 'Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories," the beauty shared while wearing a stunning, high-slit black gown.

"I will never forget sitting with my husband Rene when "My Heart Will Go On" won the GRAMMY Award for Song of the Year 18 years ago," the five-time GRAMMY award winner reminisced. As the crowd erupted into an empathetic applause for Dion, she thanked them for their support.

Last May, Dion opened up about Angélil's final moments in an interview with Paris Match magazine (translated via Us Weekly), revealing that she was performing on the night of Jan. 13, 2016 and "didn't want to wake him" when she returned home.

"Normally, after my show when he had taken his last medications, I gave him a kiss, tucked him in and sent him off to sleep," she revealed. "That evening I didn't want to wake him. It was the nurse who found him the next day. Distraught, she came to find me."

Angelil was 73 at the time of his death and had been battling throat cancer for several years.
