Céline Dion has announced plans to cease performing for the time being, postponing her Las Vegas show and canceling her planned tour of Asia.
According to People, Dion has decided to postpone all of her show-business engagements indefinitely in order to spend more time with her family. (Dion’s husband, René Angélil, had a tumor removed from his throat last December.) In a statement, Dion told People, “I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children. I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support.”
