Celine Dion made a surprise appearance at the 2024 Grammys to present the award for album of the year, following her diagnosis with stiff person syndrome.
“When I say I’m happy to be here, I mean it with all my heart,” she said, as the audience stood to cheer her on and sing her song “The Power of Love.” . “Those who were lucky enough to be here at the Grammy Awards should never take for granted the immense love and joy that music brings to our lives and to people around the world.”
Dion explained that she was on stage at the Grammys to present an award that was given to her 27 years ago by “two legends” Diana Ross and Sting.
The awards show had teased a surprise presenter for the final awards show of the evening. The Hollywood Reporter spotted Dion earlier in the evening with stylist Law Roach, who came out of retirement to style her for music’s biggest night.
The album of the year award went to Taylor Swift for Midnights, making her the first artist in Grammy history to win the night’s top prize four times. She had already won the prize for Intrepid in 2010, 1989 in 2015 and folklore in 2021.
Dion’s appearance at the 2024 Grammys came as a surprise to all, considering the music icon has been outspoken about her health struggles over the past two years. She revealed her stiff person syndrome diagnosis in December 2022 and has since had to cancel her world tour.
A year after this announcement, her sister, Claudette Dion, shared that the singer was working hard to combat her disorder but had lost control of her muscles. Claudette also noted that Dion planned to return to the stage in some capacity, but she didn’t know what state she would be in when she did.
The “My Heart Will Go On” singer just announced that Amazon MGM has secured the rights to a documentary detailing her health struggles, I am: Celine Dionas she continues to navigate her career.
“The last few years have been such a challenge for me, the journey from discovering my illness to learning to live with it and manage it, but not letting it define me,” Dion said when news of the doctor broke. . “As the road to resuming my performing career continued, I realized how much I missed being able to see my fans. During this time away, I decided to document this part of my life, d trying to raise awareness of this little-known disease, to help those who share this diagnosis.
