The Canadian songstress first shot to stardom in the 1980s thanks to her unique voice and iconic songs, and she has remained in the spotlight ever since.

Appropriately referred to as the “Queen of Power Ballads”, Celine has released countless number one hits and garnered millions of devoted fans.

But when the 56-year-old was diagnosed with stiff person syndrome in 2022, her career, and life, came to a standstill.

Stiff person syndrome is a rare neurological disorder and according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, symptoms can include stiff muscles and muscle spasms that may be triggered by noises, touch or even emotional distress.

As a result of her disorder, in May 2023 Celine was forced to postpone and then ultimately cancel her upcoming tour dates, which were scheduled for the remainder of 2023.
