“Raising the three boys, I was afraid that they were going to ask me about 'where's dad?’ every day,” she said, referring to her children René-Charles and twins Eddy and Nelson.

René-Charles, the eldest, is beginning to follow in his mother’s footsteps. He recently published his first set of cover songs online, gaining instant popularity among listeners.

"I didn't know if I was going to have the strength and the courage to sing again because René always sang with me."

CHART-TOPPING SONGS

René-Charles used Sound Cloud as a platform for his music as an independent musician. He released his tracks under the pseudonym "Big Tip."

The aspiring singer chose a few of The Weeknd songs to cover. Within a few hours after their release, his music got listed on the Charts on SoundCloud, ranking #1 and #2 under R&B and Soul, and New & Hot sections.

She is dedicating her "Courage" world tour, which commenced with a concert in downtown L.A., to her husband and her late brother Daniel, both of whom died in the same year.

She said she named the tour in honor of the courage that helped her return to the stage following the deaths of her husband and brother.

“It was a challenge. It was a challenge to go back onstage. I didn't know if I was going to have the strength and the courage to sing again because René always sang with me. René was my second half,” the five-time Grammy winner said.
