Celine Dion breaks down during ‘All by Myself’ as she returns to Vegas residency

The powerhouse singer paid tribute to her late husband, who lost his battle to throat cancer last month, by dedicating the entire performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas to him.

"Through my life I only had eyes for my husband, who sat out here night after night. People thought that I was looking at him but I didn't need to because every time I closed my eyes, I felt René on stage with me - whether he was seated in his seat right there, in the balcony, backstage, or at home with the kids,” she announced to the crowd.

“He's always been on stage with me and nothing will ever change that.

"I might not hear his voice yet, but I talk to him, I think of him all the time. 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."

Although it all got too much for the French-Canadian as she broke down during her rendition of ‘All by Myself’.

Heartbreaking.
