Video of the day: Celine Dion’s emotional tribute to Paris at the AMAs

Celine Dion honoured the victims of the Paris attacks with a spellbinding performance at the 2015 American Music Awards. Dressed in a floral-printed black Elie Saab ball gown, the Canadian singer captivated the audience with her rendition of French legend Edith Piaf’s “Hymne à l'amour.” Celine, who presenter Jared Leto described as “having one of the world’s great voices,” sang the beautiful ballad in French as fellow artists like Demi Lovato and Carrie Underwood watched with tears in their eyes. To show her own support and that of her native Quebec, the 47-year-old star included an image of a wreath from the Québec Government Office in Paris in a montage of stunning photos of the resilient French capital, which acted as the backdrop for her emotional performance.
