On Tuesday (1.30,) Celine Dion announced I Am: Celine Dion, a new documentary where she goes public about her ongoing battle with stiff person syndrome. And taking to Instagram, she wrote:
“This last couple of years has been such a challenge for me, the journey from discovering my condition to learning how to live with and manage it, but not to let it define me.” “As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realized how much I have missed it, of being able to see my fans. During this absence, I decided I wanted to document this part of my life, to try to raise awareness of this little-known condition, to help others who share this diagnosis.”
Directed by Oscar nominee Irene Taylor, the documentary will follow the now 55-year old Grammy Award winning singer’s battle with the incurable disease, which causes the body to attack its own nerve cells.
In December 2022, the Canadian chanteuse first revealed her diagnosis with an Instagram video post, and months after she first opened up about her illness, the superstar singer cancelled her Courage World Tour due to her health problems.
Acquired by Amazon Prime, I Am: Celine Dion does not yet have a formal release date.
