At Frank Sinatra tribute concert as she prepares for last Christmas with her husband
Singer Celine Dion performed at the Sinatra 100: An All-Star Grammy concert on Wednesday evening, wearing a very elegant long thigh-split dress.
The 47-year-old looked younger than her years as she belted out a tune in the beautiful one-sleeved number, which she teamed with a pair of Mary-Jane courts with a bow detail.
The performance at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas comes as the singer prepares for her last Christmas with her music manager husband Rene Angelil, 73, who is battling throat cancer.

Celine famously released a virtual duet with Sinatra, entitled All The Way, which was her and Rene’s wedding song.
So no doubt her rendition was all the more emotive, as she performed to a packed audience, which included the likes of Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett and Carrie Underwood.
Rene is currently battling throat cancer and a source told closer weekly that Celine is trying to make her time with her long-time love count.
