I am a huge fan of Celine Dion.  She is the most influential figure and inspired me musically.  When her husband and brother passed away in early 2016, she cancelled all her shows.  Even though it was difficult for her to be on stage again, she continued her music and dedicated it to her late beloved husband.   She knew that he would have wanted her to live and move on with her life and her children as it should be.   In October 2015, Dion announced on social media that she had begun working on a new French album, posting a photo by the side of Algerian singer Zaho.   Dion's French single, "Encore un soir", was released on May 24, 2016.  On May 20, she released a cover of Queen's song "The Show Must Go On", featuring Lindsey Stirling on violin.  Dion performed "The Show Must Go On" at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards on May 22, and received the Billboard Icon Award (presented to her by her son, René-Charles Angelil) in recognition of her career spanning over three decades. The singer's new French album, Encore un soir, will be released on August 26, 2016. It will have 15 tracks performed in French and, according to the singer, had a personal choice of the songs - more uplifting lyrics were chosen.  I admire her strength, determination, and courage.   She is the Queen of Pop and always be.
