On Monday, musician Céline Dion paid tribute to her late husband René Angélil. This year marked the third anniversary of his death.


To honor him Dion took to Twitter and Instagram with a heartfelt message.

French-Canadian singer Céline Dion, 50, shared an image of her late husband René Angélil in a social media tribute. Her message was written in French and also translated into English.

“Mon cher René… tu es toujours avec moi… et tu le seras toujours. À ta douce mémoire… xx… My dearest René….always with me…..always will be. In loving memory… xx …”


Angélil passed away at the age of 73 on January 14, 2016, from throat cancer. Two days later, the five-time Grammy winner was struck by a second tragedy.

She lost her brother Daniel Dion, who died of brain, throat, and tongue cancer at 59. In 2017, the singer honored her producer husband with an outstanding performance of “My Heart Will Go On” at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.


The couple was married for 21 years, and he served as her manager for most of her musical career. Together they shared twins Eddy and Nelson, 8, and they also had a son named René-Charles, 17.


In 2017, Dion revealed that Angélil’s passing was hard on their children. She said it was hardest for the twins but his death had also made them closer to each other.


Speaking about dealing with his passing, the singer said in an interview:

“I organize myself to not feel lonely. So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed, and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them. I need them close. When it’s time for them to say they want their room, their room’s ready. But we watch a lot of TV together. I’m discovering Disney.”

Angélil met Dion when she was just 12. He became her manager and mentor until their relationship turned romantic in 1987.

Entertainment Tonight has honored the producer by creating a timeline of their love-affair here.
