Celine Dion invited Katie Couric into her recording studio
for an exclusive conversation about her family, her husband’s cancer
diagnosis and her music in 2013.

Céline Dion has canceled her Asia tour and all Las Vegas shows for
the foreseeable future to deal with a throat ailment and care for her
husband, René Angélil, who has been battling cancer.

“I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my
husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this
time to him and to our children,” Dion wrote on her website. “I also
want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them,
and I thank them so much for their love and support.”

The career hiatus — a postponement of “all of her show business
activities” — comes months after Angélil had surgery to eliminate a
tumor in December 2013. Dion, who hasn’t performed since July 29 of this
year, said she will use the time off to focus on Angélil and their
three kids.
