As a tribute to René Angélil, the performance opened with a touching video that chronicled personal and milestone moments in René’s life from his early days of childhood, to managing a superstar recording artist, to being a loving husband and father. The video was produced by Productions J., a prominent television production company based in Montreal, which has worked closely with René and Celine for years and has captured some of their most successful and intimate moments together. Celine also sang Barbra Streisand’s “With One More Look at You,” dedicating the song to the memory of her late husband.

“I understood that my career was in a way was his masterpiece, his song, his symphony,” expressed Celine. “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.”
