Celine Dion delighted fans as she attended the “I Am: Celine Dion” documentary premiere in New York in the midst of her ongoing health struggles.

On Monday evening Dion took to the stage and vowed her "passion as a performer will never disappear”.  She added, "when life imposes something on you, you have two options. You deal with it or you don't want to deal with it. It's not going to go away so I’m going to have to deal with this and I am."

The My Heart Will Go On songstress said making the decision to her talk about her condition in the documentary both "the greatest gift and the greatest responsibility."

The documentary focuses on her legendary career and more recent struggles with a rare neurological disorder that has robbed her ability to perform.

The star has been forced to cancel scheduled shows for 2023 and 2024.
