Céline Dion discusses health concerns and optimism in NBC interview

Canadian pop icon Céline Dion recently opened up about her struggles with stiff-person syndrome, a rare neurological condition that has been affecting her for nearly two decades. In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Dion revealed that she wishes she had taken the time to address her health issues earlier on, but had been preoccupied with caring for her husband, René Angélil, who was battling throat cancer at the time.

Despite her diagnosis, Dion has continued to perform and tour over the years, altering her singing style and key of some songs to accommodate her condition. However, she eventually had to cancel her Courage world tour after announcing her diagnosis and realizing the extent of her health challenges.

In the interview, Dion expressed her determination to return to the stage, even if it means performing in a different way. She stated, "Even if I have to crawl, even if I have to talk with my hands, I will. I will."

Fans of the iconic singer have been eagerly awaiting her return to the spotlight, and Dion's full interview will air as a prime-time special on NBC. Additionally, a documentary about her life and health struggles, titled I Am: Céline Dion, is set to stream on Prime on June 25.

Despite the challenges she has faced, Dion remains a beloved figure in the music industry, having won numerous awards and accolades throughout her career. Her resilience and determination to continue performing despite her health issues serve as an inspiration to many.
