Last week, musical icon Celine Dion arrived in Paris, France ahead of her emotional and highly anticipated return to the stage.
Looking the part of a Parisian fashionista in an oh-so-chic all white ensemble, the Power of Love singer was greeted by hundreds or adoring fans who had lined the streets outside of her lavish 5-star hotel.

The 48-year-old was clearly touched as she took to the time to thank the supportive mob, who had waited hours just to get a glimpse of their idol.
Later that evening, Celine made her emotional return to the stage – and let’s just say that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
The mother-of-three absolutely lit up the stage of the AccorHotels Arena in a polished black blazer atop an intricate lace top, completed by a pair of wide-legged trousers.
She performed a number of her countless hits in both English and French, but a heartfelt performance of Encore Un Soir – a single dedicated to her late husband Rene Angelil - moved members of the audience to tears.
Celine remained incredibly strong throughout the sold-out show, despite the pain of losing her 73-year-old soulmate to a long battle with throat cancer earlier this year.
Speaking out about his last days in an emotional interview with People, the songstress explained how she manages to cope day-by-day.
“Rene always insisted the show must go on.”
“You know what, I’m 48-years-old and I lost the love of my life. I miss him a lot from when he was great, but not when he was suffering. I cannot be selfish. You have to let people go."
“I feel at peace.”
