This will be a powerful watch we’re sure!

Celine Dion breaks down in tears in the trailer for her documentary as she opens up about the rare condition that’s altering her life.

The French-Canadian singer suffers from Stiff Person Sydrome, a rare neurological disorder that can cause muscle stiffness and painful spasms.

The upcoming documentary, directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Irene Taylor will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the Canadian singer's life since being diagnosed with SPS and the challenges she has faced in her determination to keep on performing.

The 56-year-old singer cancelled her Las Vegas residency back in 2021, before revealing her SPS diagnosis in December 2022, which led to her cancelling her upcoming Courage World Tour.

The trailer opens with a clip of Celine belting out a staggering high note before her voiceover says: "My voice is the conductor of my life.”

"When your voice brings you joy, you’re the best of yourself. I need my instrument."

It then cuts to an emergency call being made before the singer, who is sat in a chair, says: "I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder and I wasn’t ready to say anything before, but I’m ready now."

The Prime Video documentary is billed as a "love letter to her fans" which will highlight "the music that has guided her life while also showcasing the resilience of the human spirit."

I Am: Celine Dion will be available to stream on Prime Video on the 25th of June.
