Celine Dion - Celine Dion Staging Las Vegas Show For Children's Charity
Celine Dion is staging a special performance of her Las Vegas residency to benefit a children's charity.
The singer has been wowing fans with her stage extravaganza at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and she's agreed to headline the Play Without Pain: Children's Sickle Cell Benefit for the Children's Hospital Boston.
Dion, a mum of three, was touched by tales of youngsters suffering the blood disorder sickle-cell anaemia, and is handing over all the proceeds from her gig to the fundraiser.
She says, "As a mother, I was incredibly moved by the stories that were shared with me regarding the impact this disease has on children.
"Participating in this benefit is a way in which I can get involved to positively touch these children's lives. The funds we raise will enable doctors to complete their important research that will allow these children to grow up pain-free and lead longer, more productive lives."
The show will take place on 15 January (12).
