But now, Céline Dion has answered the most-awaited question about when she will sing again. Ahead of her documentary I Am: Céline Dion’s release, she in an interview with CBC’s New Chief correspondent Adrienne Arsenault, addressed her health conditions. She shared that she was trying to survive through all of it, trying to be brave because, all her life, she wanted to be the best version of herself.

With the weeks, months, and years, things started to get more, more often every day. The body started to get rigid, not flexible, with more spasms, and more cramping. I went to see every ENT around the world as many shows as I’ve done, I’ve seen as many ENTs.

According to BBC, singer holds the record for the most successful residency of all time on the Las Vegas strip, and the time away from it due to health conditions helped her reflect, as she said.

There has been a price to pay for always being in tour mode while traveling. On all my days off, I wanted to be ready for the next show. I toured the world, but I did not see a lot. But as a performer and a singer, I have received so much love from the fans.

Queen of Power Ballads was asked during the interview about the weight of fans hoping that she’d sing again. She said,

I will sing again, that’s for sure. They deserve to have an expectation. They pay. I’m 56 years old, and for many, many years, I have done a lot of shows. We’ve had a lot of happiness because of the fans, paying for shows, and buying my records. They have all the right to have all the expectations.

She added that her expectations are probably bigger than what fans expect from her, noting that she has missed her fans more than she has missed singing.
