Celine Dion Has A History Of Health Problems Involving Her Iconic Voice


In February 2012, Celine Dion had to cancel several scheduled shows in Las Vegas after she was diagnosed with “a weakness in her right vocal cord, secondary to a viral illness,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. The songstress reportedly flew to Los Angeles for a check-up after experiencing problems with her voice while doing a soundcheck. “I had no control of my voice whatsoever,” she recalled. “We thought that after a few days rest I would improve, but it wasn’t getting any better. … I guess it was worse than I thought.” Dion’s doctor, UCLA’s Gerald Berke, identified the problem and prescribed six to eight weeks of vocal rest. “He assured me that with the amount of rest he prescribed, I would be back to 100 percent,” said Dion. “Obviously, this is the worst thing for a singer, not being able to do your shows. I feel worse knowing that I’m disappointing my fans.”

Just a few weeks after her announcement, however, Dion announced that she had recovered and was returning on stage to perform again starting July 2012. The “My Heart Will Go On” singer posted a message on her official website thanking her fans for their thoughts and unwavering support. “During this recovery period, so many fans, many of whom were inconvenienced by the cancelled shows, have posted kind words of encouragement on my website,” she said (via E! Online). “I’m so grateful for their thoughts and their support…more than they’ll ever know.”
