Celine Dion handles a fan's uninvited stage antics like a pro

By Emmy Griffiths

Celine Dion has never been one to shy away from a challenge, so when an overeager fan jumped on stage and grabbed the singer in Las Vegas, she waved off security and handled it like a pro. The incident, which took place in January, saw the "My Heart Will Go On" singer have a conversation with the woman on stage, discovering that she was hoping to encourage people to donate bone marrow as her son had just undergone a transplant.

Celine told her: "Let me tell you something, I'm glad you came up on stage tonight. I thought you just wanted to come closer to me, but you know what? I'm glad you came closer to me… You know what? We've got babies that we love, and we're going to fight for them. And we're wearing gold, that's a sign." Celine eventually had security help her off stage, saying: "You okay? She's okay? Just want to make sure she's fine! I don't know her, I love her!"

Thanking the audience for their patience, she continued: "You know what? Some people go through a lot, and some people need to talk. I want to say thank you to all of you, because for maybe five minutes we had given this lady a moment to talk. Gentlemen, thank you so much. You've done what you're supposed to do, I appreciate it very much. I think it was important. Thank you for your patience."
