Far across the distance, and spaces between us, Celine Dion has come to show she goes on.

The 47-year-old Grammy winner is the latest in a slew of celebrities, including Prince and Penelope Cruz, to join Instagram this week. And because she's a natural, Dion christened her verified @celinedion account with a selfie, obviously.

The Canadian songstress's initial approach to Instagram is a stark contrast to that of another famous Insta-newbie, Prince, who posted 88 photos in his first three days on the popular app.

"Hello Instagram! / Bonjour Instagram! #firstselfie," she captioned her inaugural post. In the photo, Dion can be seen smiling in what looks suspiciously like a recording studio. Is she hinting at something?

Dion returned to her Vegas residency in August after taking a yearlong hiatus to care for her husband, René Angélil, in his fight with throat cancer. "It was Rene's wish that I come back," Dion said in a statement. "While my family will always be my priority, my fans are just as important to me."

Welcome back, Celine!
