Celine Dion shared a touching tribute on Instagram to honor the late Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, who passed away on February 29 at the age of 84.

The 55-year-old singer shared a nostalgic photograph featuring herself, her late husband René Angélil, Mulroney, and his wife Mila alongside the post. Dion, who is currently undergoing treatment for Stiff Person Syndrome, seldom shares on social media as she continues to confront the illness away from the public eye.

Since late 2022, the Canadian singer’s Instagram feed has predominantly featured throwback videos or industry announcements posted by her team. Thus, her latest personal post undoubtedly sparked excitement among her followers.

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of our dear friend, the beloved former Prime Minister of Canada Brian Mulroney,” Celine penned in the caption alongside the photograph. “My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mila, and your entire family. Celine xx…”

This heartfelt post comes just weeks after Celine surprised the world with her unexpected appearance at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

During the closing moments of the ceremony on February 5, Dion took to the stage to present the final award of the night, Album of the Year, as her rendition of ‘The Power of Love’ played in the background.

The singer received a standing ovation as the luminaries of the music industry celebrated and sang along to the iconic song.

Celine Dion had the honor of presenting the Album of the Year Grammy to Taylor Swift for “Midnights,” and the Canadian star also paid tribute to music icons Diana Ross and Sting, who had presented her with the same award 27 years prior. “Thank you all, I love you right back,” she expressed to the ecstatic crowd, continuing, “When I say I’m happy to be here, I mean it from my heart.”

She emphasized the significance of the Grammy Awards, stating, “Those fortunate enough to grace the Grammy stage must never overlook the immense love and joy that music bestows upon our lives and people worldwide.”

This moment marked Dion’s first appearance on stage since she revealed in December 2022 that she had been diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome—a condition characterized by autoimmune and neurological issues leading to stiffness in the limbs.

Last week, the announcement of a new documentary about Dion was made, shedding light on Stiff Person Syndrome. Titled “I Am: Céline Dion,” the documentary will delve into the singer’s life behind the scenes as she grapples with the illness.

Dion expressed her hope that the film will “raise awareness of this little-known condition.”

Celine Dion Health Timeline: Stiff Person Syndrome Diagnosis, Treatment

In October 2023, it was reported that Dion had seemingly gained control over her diagnosis of Stiff Person Syndrome, as disclosed by a close source. “She’s been through hell with her Stiff-Person diagnosis, and before that were years of confusion and fear, trying to figure out what was wrong,” a source shared with Life & Style.

“She’s done hiding,” the source added. “It has been a very long, difficult road. But with the help of her family and many doctors and therapists, she seems to finally have things under control.”

“There are ups and downs,” the source acknowledged. “It can be daunting for her to be seen in such a vulnerable state.”

“Her children serve as her primary source of motivation,” they continued. “They provide her with the strength to persevere.”

Stiff Person Syndrome renders individuals akin to “human statues,” immobilizing the body in rigid postures.

The rarity of the disease is staggering, affecting only “one in one million people” worldwide.

While there is no known cure for SPS, there exist treatments aimed at slowing its progression. The singer is reportedly committed to exploring all avenues to alleviate symptoms.
