Discover how this condition has transformed the life of one of music's most iconic voices.

Her battle goes on and on

Céline Dion, the voice behind the timeless classic "My Heart Will Go On," is no stranger to the spotlight. But recently, she's been in the news for a reason far removed from her musical talents. In a candid interview with Hoda Kotb on 'Today', Dion revealed the chilling details of her fight with stiff-person syndrome, a battle that has pushed her to her limits.

"It's like being strangled," Dion described the sensation of the spasms that have fractured her ribs and threatened her life. The condition, affecting every part of her body, has made even the simplest tasks Herculean.

"Sometimes, when it's very severe, it can break some ribs," Dion shared, highlighting the severity of her condition.

"I had broken ribs at one point..."

The neurological condition has affected all parts of her body, including those needed to sing. "It's like somebody strangling you," she explained. "It's like somebody is pushing your larynx and pharynx when it gets into a spasm."

Nearly two years after her diagnosis, the Grammy winner's life has been turned upside down. The hardest part? "It's not hard to do a show now; it's hard to cancel a show," Dion confessed. Her documentary, 'I Am: Celine Dion', set to release on Prime Video on June 25, promises an intimate look into her journey of recovery and resilience.

Despite the challenges, Dion's spirit remains unbroken. "I'm working hard every day," she admitted, though not without acknowledging the struggle. The love for her craft and her fans shines through her words, "I miss it so much. The people. I miss them."

"Life doesn't give you any answers," she told 'Vogue France' in April. "You just have to live it! I have this illness for some unknown reason."

"The way I see it, I have two choices," the 56-year-old continued. "Either I train like an athlete and work super hard, or I switch off and it's over, I stay at home, listen to my songs, stand in front of my mirror and sing to myself." But the "It's All Coming Back to Me" singer also emphasized the privilege she has as someone who has the support of her family, friends, fans and team. And for that, she is incredibly grateful.

"People who suffer from SPS may not be lucky enough or have the means to have good doctors and good treatments," she noted. "I have those means, and this is a gift. What's more, I have this strength within me. I know that nothing is going to stop me."
