Céline's concert began with a touching photo montage of René that included a quote from the "My Heart Will Go On" singer. "I understood that my career was in a way his masterpiece, his song, his symphony. The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly. I realized that if he ever left us, I would have to continue without him, for him," she said.
After singing an emotional rendition of Barbra Streisand's hit song, "With One More Look at You," Céline told the captivated audience she thinks of her late husband "all the time," following his passing at age 73 on Thursday, Jan. 14 after a long battle with throat cancer.

"I might not hear his voice yet, but I talk to him, I think of him all the time," Céline continued. "I feel and I know he hears me, one way or another. I know he will give me a sign for his approval or not. And now I can feel that he is telling me to zip it and start singing."
