Celine Dion's Husband Rene Angélil to Be Memorialized in Same Cathedral Where They Wed

Rene Angélil will be memorialized in the same cathedral where he wed the singer.

The singer revealed that Angélil, who died Thursday, requested the sentimental location for his funeral, which will be held January 22.

"According to his final wishes, his funeral will be held at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, where 21 years ago, he chose to marry the one who will remain as the great love of his life, the artist for which he had the most respect, the woman who gave him light and happiness until his very last breath," a Facebook post read on the singer's page.

In the post on Dion's page, Angélil was also remembered with kind words.

"He will be remembered as a gentle man, generous and kind, an unprecedented visionary, a modern Pygmalion, a Renaissance man," the post read. "All who had the privilege of knowing him and of working closely with him, whether personally or professionally, salute a leader and a man of great intelligence and wisdom."
