The chart topping star credited her late husband for helping her make the last decade and a half a huge success.

Celine Dion paid an emotional tribute to her late husband René Angélil as she bowed out of her Las Vegas residency on Saturday.

The 51-year-old music legend was joined by her three sons, 18-year-old René-Charles Angelil and eight-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy Angelil, as she celebrated the life of her husband, their father, who died in 2016 aged 73. 

The Canadian songstress looked emotional as she took to the stage for the final time in Las Vegas as she brought her world famous residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace to a close after 1,141 performances.

Joined by her sons, Celine turned to a screen behind her which showed an image of her late husband who died following a battle with cancer three years ago.
