But instead of proceeding with the show as planned, Céline came out before the curtain rose and spoke frankly with the audience about the tragedy — and her message was incredibly powerful:

“Before we start the show, I need to talk to you for a minute,” Céline began. “I never start the show like this, standing in front of the curtain just talking. But tonight is very different.”

She then acknowledged the difficult decision that she and her audience had to make that night, about whether or not to come to show.

“The reason I decided to do the show so soon is more than to just sing. It is to show love and support for those who are affected.”

“They are going to need a lot of love,” Céline said. “A ton of emotional support, as well as a great deal of financial aid.”
