The 48-year-old singer performed her hit track 'My Heart Will Go On' in memory of René Angélil, who passed away in January following a battle with throat cancer.

Speaking during the finale of her Greatest Hits show, she said: "'My Heart Will Go On' has been an important song in my life for nearly two decades.

"Now and tonight, I'm very honoured to sing it for all of you and for the love of my life. René, you will always be in my heart."

Meanwhile, Celine - who has René-Charles, 15, and five-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson - previously admitted she is coping "pretty well" since her husband's death.

She said: "I am really doing well. Like I said on stage, I can't remember what I said on stage exactly, but I guess if I am fine, my kids are fine and if my kids are fine, I am fine. That is the most important thing. My children are doing really well and I am doing really well ...

"I have to stand strong for today and for my kids and myself for what is to come, for tomorrow, and I don't know ... Rene gave everything to me, wonderful children on top of the rest of my journey through the business. Whether I want to be on stage or not I feel so fulfilled of love still. I still feel him very much. I cope pretty well with his new life, to be honest with you."
