Celine Dion Stand Up To Cancer Video: Watch ‘Recovering’ Performance
Celine Dion performed her new song “Recovering” during the 2016 Stand Up To Cancer benefit on Friday night. Watch the video below.
The celebrity fundraiser aired live from the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, where dozens of A-list stars gathered to raise money for cancer research. The hour-long, commercial-free telecast featured several musical performances and special guests, but Dion’s emotional tribute to her late husband, Rene Angelil, was one of the night’s bittersweet highlights.
As Gossip Cop reported, Angelil died in January following a lengthy battle with throat cancer. Just two days later, Dion’s brother Daniel tragically passed away from a combination of brain, throat and tongue cancer. “Recovering,” which was written specifically for Dion by fellow singer Pink, will be included on Dion’s upcoming album. The track features such lyrics as, “Little by little, day by day/One step at a time/Shake off the devil/Take back my piece of mind/I am recovering.”
In addition to Dion’s performance, the Stand Up To Cancer telethon also included Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban and Little Big Town singing “Heroes” in tribute to David Bowie, who died of liver cancer earlier this year. Other artists taking the stage at the show were Charlie Puth and Alessia Cara. Check out full video of Dion’s powerful Stand Up To Cancer performance below.
