On Sunday, November 22 the American Music Awards (AMAs) will air at 8/7 central on ABC, and the recent tragedy in Paris will not go unacknowledged. As a tribute to all those that were impacted by the recent Paris attacks, Celine Dion will be performing “Hymne à L’Amour.” The lovely song which was originally performed by Edith Piaf, translates to “Hymn to Love” and Celine's interpretation is sure to evoke emotion from the global audience.

Celine’s performance will help us express our feelings through song, when words do not suffice.”
