Celine Dion's emotional year leading up to René's death

Celine Dion has faced a year of tremendous highs and lows, from career triumphs such as her American Music Awards tribute to Paris's victims of terrorism to struggles with husband René Angélil's health. Through the roller-coaster ride of it all, she's continued to showcase the "Power of Love," always putting her loved ones first and taking time off from her Las Vegas residency to care for René.

Her beloved spouse, who lost his several-year battle with cancer on Jan. 14, was the one who nudged his wife back onto the stage where she belongs. From breathtaking performances to social media debuts, here is a look back at Celine's emotional year.
