Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Singer Celine Dion, who lost her husband Rene Angelil in January this year, paid an emotional tribute to him in a heartbreaking 2016 retrospective video.

The four-minute-long video, which began with January 14, the date of her husband's demise after a long battle with cancer, also documented the Grammy winner's moments from her personal times of grief to her historic 1,000th Las Vegas show, reported People magazine.

Footage from the January 22 funeral showed Dion and the couple's three children, Rene-Charles, 15, and 6-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, saying their final goodbyes at Montreal's Notre-Dame Basilica, the same place at which the two got married in 1994.

Also featured in the retrospective piece were Angelil's February 3 memorial in Las Vegas, Dion's powerful first performance back on The Colosseum stage as well as the Billboard Music Awards, during which the singer received the Icon Award from her eldest son.

"My voice does not resonate without you. You have made my childhood dream come true. I hope I have inspired you to reach out for yours," Dion concluded her video.
