In 2019, meanwhile, Celine opened up about her late husband’s message just before he passed away.

During a chat on the Today Show, she said: “He called me before a show and gave me a little message, ‘I love you’. And when I came home that night, he was very, very late. And I didn’t want to come and wake him up to kiss him, wake him up, and then he couldn’t sleep again. And the next morning he was gone.”
