Amazon Prime Video

Celine Dion is offering fans an intimate look at her health struggles in a new documentary, “I Am: Celine Dion,” set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 25. The trailer, released on Thursday, features several poignant scenes, including moments where the singer breaks down in tears while discussing her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS).

In the emotional trailer, Dion speaks candidly about her inability to perform due to SPS, a rare neurological disorder. She expresses her deep sense of loss from not being able to connect with her audience, highlighting the emotional toll of canceling performances. The trailer shows Dion engaged in physical exercises, stretching her legs, and crying during a physical therapy session as she is comforted by her support team.

Despite the heart-wrenching moments, the documentary also showcases Dion’s unwavering determination to return to the stage. She passionately states, “If I can’t run, I’ll walk. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl. And I won’t stop. I won’t stop.” This statement underscores her relentless spirit and commitment to her craft, which has endeared her to fans worldwide.

Dion has been increasingly open about her health challenges in recent months. In a recent interview with Vogue France, she described how she trains like an athlete to maintain her mobility and continue moving forward. Her transparency has provided rare insights into her current life and the rigorous efforts she undertakes to manage her condition.

Dion first revealed her SPS diagnosis in December 2022, which led to the postponement of her European tour. Since then, she has gradually re-emerged in the public eye, making appearances at NHL games and presenting at the Grammys.

The upcoming documentary promises to be a deeply moving portrayal of Dion’s resilience and dedication to her fans and music. As the release date approaches, viewers can anticipate a powerful narrative that highlights both her struggles and her indomitable will to overcome them.
