Watch: Celine Dion sing tearful rendition of 'All By Myself' at Las Vegas return
YouTube

Celine Dion made a triumphant return to her Las Vegas residency on Feb. 23 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The five-time Grammy performed her first show since the deaths of her husband Rene Angelil and brother Daniel last month to a capacity audience, performing an emotionally charged 19-song setlist, which included a powerful cover of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself."

Jam Canoe reports on Feb. 24 that the multi-platinum seller offered fans an opportunity to witness her stage return via a free 20 minute live stream hosted at her official Celine Dion website. The show opened with a photo montage of Angelil and a quote from the "My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker that ended with the words "I realized that if he ever left us, I would have to continue without him, for him."

The night produced many tearful moments as Dion - still raw and vulnerable from her losses - courageously tackled numerous songs about lost love, including, "Where Does My Heart Beat Now?," "Because You Loved Me" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" to repeated standing ovations. A consummate professional, the Canadian chanteuse did not let the tears affect her poise until launching into "All By Myself" about two-thirds of the way through evening.

In the 2:46 minute fan-shot video, Dion begins her moving rendition of the 1975 power ballad with a simple piano accompaniment. The emotion begin to well up as she launches into the song's chorus, singing, "All by myself/Don't want to be all by myself anymore."

Dion nails the power note in the key transition and moves to repeat the chorus, but becomes overwrought with tears after the first line and covers her face with her hands for nearly a minute. The audience rises from the seats to give the grieving singer an standing ovation to show their support as the orchestra continues playing and Dion recovers in time to complete the song's powerful ending. Fans can check out the video above.

Celine Dion's Las Vegas residency continues on Feb. 24 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Tickets for all Celine Dion shows are available at AXS.
