The most dreadful news of the day. Celine Dion regrettably confirmed it.

Due to a recent diagnosis of the rare neurological condition known as stiff-person syndrome, Céline Dion, the legendary Canadian singer, has postponed some dates on her European tour.

In two videos shared on her social media accounts on Thursday, Dion stated that her debilitating sickness prevents her from “singing the way I’m used to.”

Spasm sickness, increasing muscle rigidity, and stiff-person syndrome are the causes of this. According to The Stiff Person Syndrome Research Foundation, patients may be immobile, unable to care for themselves, or both.

According to Dion, her muscle spasms “impact every element of my everyday living.”

She continued, crying as she said that her illness made it difficult for her to move and prevented her from communicating as she was accustomed to.

She continued, “Facing these problems and talking about everything that’s happened to me has been quite difficult for me. I’ve had health problems for a very long time.”

Dion expressed her disappointment that her illness prevented her from starting the European leg of her tour in February. The following year has been chosen as the new date for her 2023 tour. Eight of Dion’s scheduled performances between May 31 and July 17, 2023, have been postponed.

The My Heart Will Go On singer assured fans that she is working closely with her family, medical professionals, and doctors to get better.

The five-time Grammy winner stated the desire to return to the stage.

“I’m just a singer,” she continued. “I’ve been doing that all my life,” she said. “And I find the most happiness in doing it.”

Premier of Québec François Legault expressed sympathy for Dion’s condition on Thursday morning. Legault told reporters that he hopes Dion “gets well as quickly as possible” on his way to the question and answer session of the National Assembly.

A children’s choir played ‘My Heart Will Go On in Toronto’s Queen’s Park as part of their homage to Celine Dion.

To increase her strength and performance, Dion said she meets with a sports medicine therapist every day.

“I sincerely miss you.” Dion told her audience, “I miss seeing all of you. Normally, when I perform, I offer everything I’ve got, but my health prevents me from doing so for you.”

Dion canceled her world tour this year because of “severe and persistent muscle spasms.”

Her website may find information on Dion’s tour and any scheduled schedule.

The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences estimates less than 5,000 cases of stiff-person syndrome are in the country. Even though symptoms can manifest at any point in a patient’s life, adulthood is when they are most frequently observed.
