Angélil died of throat cancer at his home in Henderson, Nevada on Jan. 14. He was 73.



Three weeks after her husband's death, Dion returned to The Colosseum stage where colleagues, friends and family – including Dion's 14-year-old son René-Charles, as well as Angélil's children from former marriages, Patrick, Jean-Pierre and Anne-Marie – listened to her emotional speech about the late music manager in addition to the 15 others who spoke at the tribute event.

The singer first met Angélil when she was 12 years old. He discovered her after she submitted a demo tape of a song she had written with her mother in 1980. The pair would later marry in 1994.

The show will stream live on Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. EST.
