If there’s any advice the five time Grammy Award winner Celine Dion would give to others who may have gone through a loss, she said it would be: “You cannot stop living.”
“Go forward,” she added.
She says she is feeling “so powerful and in charge and grounded and happy,” three years after the death of her husband of over 20 years, while sharing some of her best advice for others who may be going through a loss.
Her husband René Angélil passed away in 2016 with heart attack.
“The kids are growing, and I see them. And I look at them and I’m like, ‘Wow … we’ve done a great job,'” she told ABC News’ Deborah Roberts in an interview for “Good Morning America”. “And I’m so proud.”

The Canadian singer, who recently turned 51, said she feels “stronger, more beautiful” and “more grounded” than ever.
“There’s this power and this strength that comes with that maturity and that — that vintage thing,” she added. “That’s priceless.”
The “My Heart Will Go On” singer said her secret to staying healthy, fit and happy these days is just having fun.
“[I] don’t need to prove myself to the industry, to my family, to my friends, because I think I have done it for many years,” she said. “I do it because my passion has grown through the years.”
“And now I do it because I have so much fun,” she added.
When asked about comments from some who say she has been looking too thin lately, Dion brushed them off, gasping, “I’m thin?”
“I’m kind, too, you know?” she added. “It’s true that I’m a little thinner. Everything’s fine, nothing’s wrong.”
She said she also recently discovered her “new passion” of “dancing.”
This June, Dion will take the stage at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas for the very last time, ending her residency that has been ongoing for almost 20 years.
She said she doesn’t like “the word finish.”
“Vegas has given me … the passion that we love to share with the people,” she said. “People thought I was going to — finish my career here. And that … the Titanic was going to sink again.”
When asked if she was ready for love again, Dion responded “I am in love.”
“Love is not necessarily to marry again,” she added. “When I see a rainbow, when I see a sunset … a beautiful dance number, I laugh, I cry. I’m in love.”
“I go on stage every night because I love what I do,” Dion said. “So I’m very much in love.”
