Céline Dion and her son René-Charles Angélil shared a sweet red carpet moment at a screening of her new documentary.

The 56-year-old singer looked radiant at the New York City event for I Am: Celine Dion, an upcoming Prime Video documentary that goes inside her life as a legendary performer. The film also chronicles Dion's battle with a rare neurological disorder, stiff-person syndrome (SPS).

The "Queen of Power Ballads" stunned in an all-white look that included a long skirt and an elegant long-sleeved blouse. She accessorized with a silver belt, matching bracelets, and stud earrings. René-Charles, 23, opted for a black suit and coordinating dress shoes.

Dion shares René-Charles, as well as twins Nelson and Eddy, with her late husband, René Angélil. Angélil died in 2016 from throat cancer.

I Am: Celine Dion is described as "a love letter to her fans" in a press release. The official trailer, released in May 2024, shows snippets from Dion's career as well as confessional-style interviews.

“My voice is the conductor of my life,” she says, adding that recently “it’s been a struggle” to do what she loves most due to her condition, which causes muscle spasms.

“I miss it so much,” Dion adds in the trailer. “The people, I miss them. If I can’t run, I’ll walk. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl.”

Directed by Oscar nominee Irene Taylor, I Am: Céline Dion premieres on Prime Video on June 25.

Since being diagnosed with SPS in 2022, Dion has largely stayed out of the spotlight but made a surprise appearance at the 2024 Grammy Awards in February. The five-time Grammy Award-winning singer received a standing ovation as she graced the stage to present the award for album of the year to Taylor Swift.

For the awards show, Dion wore a floor-length baby pink Valentino gown with a pleated bodice. She accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewelry including a 12+ carat diamond necklace, 6-carat pear-shaped cocktail ring and diamond bracelets. She added a long caramel coat (also Valentino) over her gown and her hair was styled into a sleek bob.

"It was very nerve-wracking, but at the same time, a big honor," she said of the appearance during an April 2024 interview forVogue's "Life in Looks" series. "That magic. That excitement. To see the fans, to see the crowd. To see show business again."

Dion's stylist Law Roach shared his gratitude on Instagram for the opportunity to work with the singer again.

"This makes me so much Joy! Not just to dress my Queen again but the fact that she’s HEALTHY AND HAPPY! The UNIVERSE always PROTECTS and PROVIDES Thank you @maisonvalentino @pppiccioli@f3nardi @tiffanyandco@michaelmclaughlin2@matthewreisman and of course Thank you Celine for allowing me to share this triumphant moment with you," Roach captioned a photo of him and Dion.

"I brought maybe 15 dresses [to Céline] and this one, I knew. I did," Roach told Entertainment Tonight. "I knew when she saw it and she tried it on, it was just [gasp], and when you have that [gasp], you know it's the right one."
