The 2024 Paris Olympics will reportedly see a stage comeback by famed Canadian singer Celine Marie Dion, better known simply as Celine Dion, who will perform during the opening ceremony.

It is anticipated that the ceremony will be viewed by around 600,000 people and be aired on 80 enormous public screens.

Celebrity musical performances at the Olympics are nothing new. The first performance of the ritual took place in Athens, Greece, in 1896, marking the beginning of the 20th century.

Several high-profile musicians have performed during the opening and closing ceremonies, which are separated by the iconic Olympic theme songs. Among them are Lady Gaga, Andrea Bocelli, Whitney Houston, Angelique Kidjo, and numerous others.

Aya Nakumura and Dua Lipa are scheduled to perform on the Olympic stage.

If verified, this will mark Dion’s first significant public appearance in a minimum of two years following her 56-year-old vocalist’s diagnosis with stiff person syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that affects the brain and results in excessively stiff muscles.

Dion stated in an official statement from 2022 that the illness left her incredibly weak and that at one time, it was taking away her ability to perform what she did best entertain her fans.

“It’s like somebody is strangling you. It’s like somebody is pushing your larynx/pharynx,” she said in the interview.

As her name suggests, Dion also struggles with muscular stiffness, which has negatively affected her life quality and capacity to engage in her favourite activities

“If I cook, because I love to cook, my fingers, my hands, will get in position. … It’s cramping, but it’s like in a position where you cannot unlock them,” she said.

“Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life…sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to,” she stated.
