Prayers for Celine: Celine Dion’s Brother and Husband Die in the Same Week

By: Anny Jules 

It has undoubtedly been a tough and tragic week for legendary songstress Celine Dion. On Thursday, January 14, Celine Dion’s husband René Angelil died from a longtime battle with cancer. Two day later on Saturday, Celine’s brother Daniel died from a similar throat and brain cancer that René passed away from. 

 

TheDion family recently released a press release asking for privacy at this time. Reports claim that a tribute for Daniel and René will be held on Saturday and a formal funeral service will be held a few days later. 

 

 

"Taking in consideration the reserved character of their deceased brother, the family wishes respect and discretion from the media,” the family’s press release reads. 

 

 

 

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to you Celine. May Daniel and René rest in peace.
