While Celine Dion‘s husband, Rene Angelil, was still alive, the 47-year-old singer was incredibly vocal about her love for him. She sadly had to say goodbye to the man she called the “only boyfriend” she ever had on Jan. 14, but Celine plans to declare her love for Rene once more at his funeral with a touching performance dedicated to him and their life together.
“She wants to honor her husband in song and is looking to perform at his funeral,” a source said. Although it is still unclear what song she would sing, sources are speculating that she may perform her love ballad, “Because You Loved Me.” What a perfect, yet heartbreaking choice that would be.
Rene sadly lost his long battle with throat cancer on Jan. 14 at age 73, surrounded by Celine and his loved ones in their Las Vegas home. Not only had he and Celine been married for 21 years, but Rene managed her for over 30 years, so it was a devastating loss for Celine.
