Celine Dion Fans ‘Sobbing’ Over Emotional Interview Trailer

Celine Dion fans were moved to tears as they watched the star’s new documentary for the first time, which explores how her life has changed since her devastating health diagnosis.

The Canadian artist will offer a rare behind-the-scenes look at her life as she battles stiff person syndrome, a rare and incurable autoimmune condition that causes muscle stiffness in the torso and can lead to muscle stiffness and spasms.

Dion was forced to reschedule the European leg of her world tour following her diagnosis. She subsequently announced the cancellation of the entire world tour in May 2023.

The first trailer of I am: Celine Dion, directed by Oscar nominee Irene Taylor premiered on Thursday (May 23). It shows Dion, 56, sitting in a chair as she says: “I have been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder.

“And I wasn’t ready to say anything before. But I’m ready,” she adds with a sigh.

Dion’s candor in the clip, along with the montage of her live performances and studio recordings, left fans emotional as they expressed their love for the “My Heart Will Go On” star.

“Celine Dion made me cry and her documentary isn’t out yet,” one viewer wrote on X/Twitter.

Another commented: “After watching the trailer, I think we fans are in for a rollercoaster of emotions… she is a force of nature and I am so proud of her and to be her fan!”

“I won’t be able to stand this documentary about Celine Dion. I’ll need to take a day to cry because the trailer already makes me want to sob. I LOVE Celine,” said one fan.

“Celine Dion’s strength and resilience to resist is truly inspiring,” another viewer agreed. “We love you Céline!”

“I’m working hard every day. But I have to admit, it’s been a struggle,” Dion says in the trailer as he receives therapy and treatment for her condition.

Beginning to cry, she continues: “I miss him so much. People. I miss them. If I can’t run, I will walk. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl. And I won’t stop.”

An official tagline for the documentary said it will serve as a “love letter” to his fans and highlight “the music that has guided his life while showcasing the resilience of the human spirit.”

I am: Celine Dion will be available to stream on Prime Video starting June 25.
