Video: Celine Dion's Emotional First Speech About The Death Of René Angélil

Three weeks after Celine Dion's husband, René Angélil, died from throat cancer at 73, she took the stage at a massive event in Las Vegas to celebrate his life. 


The event was broadcast live from the Colosseum at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas and featured performances and speeches from major names in the music industry. But the most emotional moment came from Dion herself, who gave an emotional speech about her beloved René.
"This is my home away from home," she told the Las Vegas crowd, in the same venue where she usually performs during her residency. "At the same time, I'm supposed to feel extremely comfortable being home and right now I'm not sure how comfortable I feel."
