Celine Dion overcome with emotion as she discusses her health battle

Celine Dion broke down in tears as she discussed her battle with stiff person syndrome for a new documentary.

In a trailer released on Thursday for I Am: Celine Dion, the singing legend couldn't contain her emotion as she revealed how much she misses performing live.

"I'm working hard every day, but I have to admit, it's been a struggle," Celine said in a clip from the upcoming Prime Video documentary. "I miss it so much."

As her eyes welled up with tears, she added: "The people, I miss them."

During the trailer the 56-year-old star also revealed her determination to get back on stage and sing.

"If I can't run, I'll walk. If I can't walk, I'll crawl," she said. "And I won't stop. I won't stop."

Celine added that while it "sounds great" to sing in a recording studio, nothing comes more naturally than creating "magic" when she performs live for her adoring fans.

"It's not hard to do a show, you know," the My Heart Will Go On star explained. "It's hard to cancel a show."

The singer revealed she had been diagnosed with stiff person syndrome in December 2022.

The rare neurological disorder causes painful muscle spasms and muscle stiffness, and can affect a person's mobility.

Following the news about her health, Celine cancelled tours dates across Europe which had been scheduled for early 2023.

I Am: Celine Dion will begin streaming on Prime Video from 25 June.
