This rare public appearance comes as the legendary singer continues to battle Stiff-Person Syndrome — an autoimmune neurological disorder that causes muscle stiffness and painful spasms.

After months of experiencing mysterious symptoms, Dion was finally diagnosed in December 2022. Unfortunately, this eventually resulted in her canceling the remainder of her 2023 tour.

"I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%," she announced in May 2023. "It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again. I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!"

By December, her sister Claudette revealed Celine no longer had full "control over her muscles" anymore.

"What breaks my heart is that she's always been disciplined. She's always worked hard," she continued. "Our mother always told her, 'You're going to do it well, you're going to do it properly.' It's true that in both our dreams and hers, the goal is to return to the stage. In what capacity? I don't know."
