Since revealing that she is dealing with a rare and incurable condition known as stiff person syndrome, Céline Dion has stayed out of the public eye, which is why her appearance at the end of the 2024 Grammys was such a wonderful surprise.
But the only thing better than seeing the icon in public with a smile? Hearing her sing. Backstage, the “My Heart Will Go On” singer had an apparently impromptu jam session with singer-songwriter Sonyae Elise.
Elise included the sweet moment of herself and Dion trading phrases and riffing, in a video roundup of the evening. She captioned the post, “Highlights of an ICONIC night🥂 So inspired & proud of my girls🏆🏆🏆👏🏾💪🏾💜.”
Later in the video Dion appears to sing a bit in what looks like an elevator.
Based on Dion's outfit of jeans and white jacket, which is what she arrived in, the videos were taken before the singer took the stage, where she presented in a light pink gown and a camel coat.

“When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it, from my heart,” Dion told the crowd at the ceremony. “Those who have been blessed enough to be here at the Grammy Awards must never take for granted the tremendous love and joy that music brings to people around the world.”
Despite not taking home any awards, Elise definitely won the Grammys night, not only for rocking a purple gown and blue hair and then singing with Céline Dion but also grabbing a pic with other legends in the building like Meryl Thee Streep.
The ecstatic reaction to Dion's appearance, and the equally excited comments on Elise's post, show just how much the singer means to her fans. As if that weren't already proved when Rolling Stone left her off their all-time greatest singers list and got thoroughly roasted by the Céline hive.
Once again for the fans in the back?
Love you, Céline!
