Celine Dion is the latest celebrity to pay their respects to the victims of the terrorist attacks across Paris on Nov. 13. The singer dedicated her performance in Las Vegas on Nov. 16 to the people of France. “We would like to dedicate this show to the families and friends of those who left us in the tragic events in Paris. God Bless …” read a statement on Celine’s official website, adding, “Celine and René are deeply saddened by the recent tragic events in Paris. Celine expressed these sentiments at her shows on Friday and Saturday.”

The singer’s emotional performance was a beautiful tribute to the more than 130 lives that were taken in the shhotings. To honour France’s three-day mourning period, the Canadian singer also postponed ticket sales to her Paris shows scheduled in 2016.
While Celine used music to show her support, other celebrities and royals are showcasing their solidarity with France in a variety of other ways. Jennifer Lawrence and her Hunger Games castmates wore blue, white and red ribbons on the red carpet of the film’s première in Los Angeles. Justin Bieber penned a touching letter on social media in remembrance of his colleague Thomas, a Universal Music Group executive who was killed at the Bataclan theatre during the Eagles of Death Metal concert.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paused in their busy schedules to visit the French Embassy in London and sign a book of condolence. "To all those who have died and were injured in the heartless attacks in Paris, and all the people in France: nos plus sincères condoléances," the message read. It was signed "William" and "Catherine."
