So Long Rene Angelil
People across the globe are praying for the uber talented Celine Dion and her three sons as they say “so long” to their loved one Rene . Angélil, The husband of award-winning Canadian singer Celine Dion, died on Thursday at the age of 73 after a long battle with cancer, Dion announced. “It’s with profound sadness that we are announcing that Rene Angelil, 73, died Jan. 14.

Angélil was sent off Friday in a moving funeral he himself had planned, live-streamed and broadcast to the world from a packed basilica in Montreal where the couple had married 21 years earlier.
While Dion did not speak at the funeral, she did write a message on the program at Angélil’s public memorial on Thursday.
“I understand that my career was in a way his masterpiece, his song, his symphony. The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly,” reads Dion said “I realized that if he ever left us, I would have to continue without him, for him.”
Thankfully Celine will go on with her public singing, and I’m guessing that some legendary music will evolve from her loss and her memory of the man she called husband, friend and agent. As of today, some of her top selling songs include My Heart Goes On from the Blockbuster hit Titanic, Power of Love, A New Day Has Come and Falling Into You.
