Transcript for Celine Dion Gives Emotional Tribute to Late Husband
Finally, what happened when Celine Dion took the stage for the first time since the death of her husband? Here's ABC's Deborah Roberts. Reporter: Last night Celine Dion making an emotional return to the stage of the coliseum in Las Vegas. ? With one more look at you ? Reporter: Performing "With one more look at you," a poignant tribute to her late husband and manager Rene angelil. Every time I close my eyes, I felt Rene on stage with me. He's always been on stage with me. And nothing will ever change that. Reporter: It's been just a month since she lost her beloved husband to throat cancer. But there was never a question Dion would return. "My career was in a way his masterpiece. The idea of leaving it unfinished would hurt him terribly." ? All by myself ? Reporter: A heartbreaking moment when Dion broke into tears singing "All by myself." Pausing to collect herself before powerfully finishing the set. I met Dion last spring and though angelil was ill, he joined us on that very stage. Despite it all, encouraging his wife to perform. Sometimes, and I think I'm used to it, don't feel what you need to feel. Just do it. Go on stage? I did. Because I love him. And I did. And it was very hard. Reporter: Now as a tribute to that love, Celine singing once again. For "Nightline," I'm Deborah Roberts in New York.
