Céline Dion is taking things one day at a time since losing her husband René Angélil and her brother Daniel within weeks of each other in 2016. Dion recently appeared at a launch for her handbag collection in Montreal and opened up about how she’s been coping in the year since the losses.
“I’m enjoying myself. I went through a lot and I am not the only one,” she said. “I think sometimes when you go through a lot, whether it’s disappointment or a loss … there is a force that takes over when you believe. And, I am such a believer. Because I am a mother, because I am a sister, because I am a friend, because I am a wife, because I have projects, I have visions and focus. I want to create and I think at this time in my life, going back a few years back when things were so hard, it feels like I can spread my wings.”
“There’s a lot going on and to be an honest with you, when your a mother, the best is yet to come,” she said before belting out the Frank Sinatra classic. She also gave the audience a little something extra when she belted out a bit of Rhianna’s “Diamonds” for the group.
“Now it is definitely too soon for me. I am definitely in love with him, married to him,” she said. “He’s the love of my life. It’s very difficult for me to see myself with another person.”
