Celine Dion, who has been battling Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that affects her vocal cords, surprised her fans with a beautiful duet with R&B singer Sonyae Elise backstage at the Grammys.
The two singers, who met for the first time at the awards show, improvised a song together, with Celine singing to Stevie Wonder, one of her musical idols. Sonyae Elise posted the short clip of the duet on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, captioning it with "A moment I will never forget. Thank you Celine Dion for your grace, your kindness, and your voice."
The clip quickly went viral, with fans and celebrities alike praising Celine's courage and talent, and expressing their admiration for Sonyae Elise, who won the first season of the reality show Platinum Hit in 2011.
Celine Dion's family has said that Stiff Person Syndrome has made her unable to sing, and that she has been undergoing treatment and therapy for the past year. The condition causes muscle stiffness, spasms, and pain, and can affect the ability to breathe and speak.
Despite her health challenges, Celine Dion has not given up on her passion for music. She released her 12th English-language album, Courage, in 2019, and has been working on new songs with various producers and writers. She also plans to resume her world tour, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, later this year.
