The 'My Heart Will Go On' hitmaker has praised the "phenomenal" singer for penning a track called 'Recovering' for her, as she thinks the piece of music has helped her to "move forward" following her husband René Angelil's death from cancer in January.

Celine told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I'm already starting to work on an English album. Pink wrote me a song.

"She is phenomenal. I love her for her talent, for her strength, for her focus, the person she is. At the [Billboard Music Awards] when I saw her, I said, 'For you to take the time to really write a song, to give me a tool, a piece of luggage to help me to move forward to walk to keep going...'

"It's called 'Recovering.' "

The 48-year-old singer - who has sons René-Charles, 15, and five-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson with her late husband - has also thanked her fans for helping "push" her through her grief.

She said: "I think I do have a relationship with my fans that are [pushing] me [along]. They've been such supporters of my good days and my bad days.

"They are so considerate for my happiness and my sadness, my good and bad moments, and they are [always] supporting me.

"The fans are supporting not only my music, but who I am. I've been criticised for being an open book for so long, but it's paying off today because they know me well."

And Celine found knowing how passionate her husband - who was also her manager - was about her career helped her face up to returning to the stage.

She said: "I have to say that, coming here after the passing of my husband after not even six months, it could have been way easy for me to say, 'You know what, I'm not in the mood of dressing up and having the purse and seeing the fans and having a good time and singing, giving a part of your soul.'

"But knowing that he loved the industry so much - he made me who I am today since [I was] 12 years old - I went back on stage before he passed, he wanted me to really be the artist I always wanted to be, and I knew that for a long time.
