“I feel his love in this room. I feel his strength and his warmth being reflected in all of you," the 47-year-old singer said.

She took the stage in an elegant shoulder-baring dress as she spoke to a crowd of 4,000.

“This is my home away from home. At the same time I’m supposed to feel extremely comfortable being home and right now I’m not sure how comfortable I feel,” she said.

She opened up about her 21-year marriage to the love of her life. Angélil died last month at 73 after a long battle with throat cancer.

Dion was joined on stage by her 15-year-old son, René-Charles, and her step-children.

She ended her eulogy with: “René, the love of my life. René, I love you, so much, merci, good night.”
