During her emotional speech, Dion was supported by her eldest son, René-Charles Angélil, while expressing appreciation for her other children, twins Eddy and Nelson. She also thanked her neurologist, Dr. Amanda Piquet, and the director of “I Am,” Irene Taylor, for their support throughout the documentary’s production.

“I Am” offers viewers a revealing glimpse into Dion’s daily life with SPS, highlighting its impact on her vocal abilities and overall well-being. The documentary showcases Dion’s resilience and humor but also captures her moments of vulnerability as she grapples with managing her condition.

The screening of “I Am” received multiple standing ovations, with Dion warmly acknowledging the audience’s support. Before leaving the stage, she expressed her gratitude, describing the film as her love letter to her fans.

“I Am: Celine Dion” is set to stream on Prime Video starting June 25, offering audiences a deeper understanding of Dion’s journey and resilience in the face of adversity.
