Happy birthday to legendary singer Celine Dion! The artist turns 49 today, but you would never know from her fit figure and flawless complexion. Dion has had a trying year after the 2016 passing of her 73-year-old husband, Réne Angélil, but the strong-willed star returned to her career—and long-standing Las Vegas residency—with inspiring strength.
“I understood that my career was in a way his masterpiece, his song, his symphony,” Dion said in a statement at her show. “The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly. I realized that if he ever left us, I would have to continue without him, for him.”
