Singer Celine Dion receives Billboard Icon Award  after delivering a Powerful Queen Cover  performance “The Show Must go On”  at Billboard Music Awards. Through her performance Celine Dion paid tribute  to her husband Rene Angelil who died last January at the age of 73 fighting throat cancer.

Celine Dion met Angelil when she was 12 years old after her brother Michel sent recordings of her singing to the manager. The pair married in 1994 and raised three children together.

After the performance Dion received the  Billboard Icon award from the hands of her son  René-Charles. She delivered an emotional speech and dedicated her performance to her late husband. “I’m so sorry, I… I want to be so strong for my family and my kids, and I didn’t expect that, I don’t want to cry in front of you but you make me so happy,” said Dion, before holding her son’s hand and asking him to stand next to her.
