It is not easy to deal with any illness, no matter how mild or advanced it may seem. People are affected differently due to various diagnoses and are required to make significant adaptations to their prevalent lifestyle. It takes a toll on their mental health and confidence. In such cases, people need understanding and support from their loved ones and the angelic Celine Dion got just that from her beloved fans and celebrity family at the Grammys. The singer, who has been suffering from stiff person syndrome, made the effort to make an appearance at the event and her people did not disappoint, reports TODAY.

The stiff person syndrome is a rare condition wherein the muscles of several body parts suffer from rigidity or spasms, according to Yale Medicine. It makes basic activities difficult to do and the uncontrollable spasms add much of a challenge to daily life. Amid the struggles and treatment, Celine Dion appeared at the Grammys after being out of the public eye for quite some time. The singer gladly agreed to present the award for the final category of the event, “Best Album of the Year.” As the singer stepped in on stage to present the award, the entire audience stood up and applauded her for her bold decision to be present. As an honor to the iconic singer for her melodious and heavenly music, which has given decades, singers and other celebrities stood up in unison.

Celine Dion was filled with emotions before she could bring herself together and speak to her people. The beauty behind “My Heart Will Go On” shared a moment of tearful joy at the love and honor she received from thousands of artists present at the Grammys. The singer shared a short speech on account of the tremendous support she received from the people. “Thank you all, I love you right back.” She paused to relay her next message as effectively as possible and said, “When I say I’m happy to be here, I mean it from my heart.” She then mentioned how much music meant to her and what a vivid and vibrant gift it was to the world.

She also shared an encouraging note to budding artists by saying, “Those who have been blessed enough to be here, the Grammy Awards, must never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music brings to our lives and people all around the world.” A moment not to be forgotten, a moment to relish the singer’s presence, her love for her fans and the sources that have been a part of her career. Celine Dion then went on to present the award that she had been invited for. She mentioned that it was an added honor to be presenting the very same award she had received from Diana Ross over 27 years ago. As the singer elegantly did her bit and announced the award to the history-making artist of the night, Taylor Swift, one couldn’t help but be filled with awe, watching two different eras of music celebrate each other with much love and support.
