Jan. 30 (UPI) -- I Am: Celine Dion, a new documentary about Grammy-winning singer Celine Dion, is coming to Prime Video.

Amazon MGM Studios announced in a press release Tuesday that it acquired the worldwide rights to the feature-length documentary.

I Am: Celine Dion is directed by Irene Taylor (Trees and Other Entanglements) and gives "a snapshot of a pivotal time in the life and career" of Dion, 55.

The film explores Dion's past and present as she shares her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) and "the lengths she has gone" to keep performing for fans.

"From visiting her couture touring wardrobe and personal effects to spending time in the recording studio, the documentary captures a global megastar's never-before-seen private life. An emotional, energetic and poetic love letter to music, I Am: Celine Dion captures more than a year of filming as the legendary singer navigates her journey toward living an open and authentic life amidst illness," an official synopsis reads.

Dion went public about her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome in December 2022, sharing how the rare neurological disorder has caused muscle spasms that affect her ability to walk and sing.

Dion's sister said in December 2023 that the singer has lost control of her muscles but still hopes to return to the stage some day.

I Am: Celine Dion is produced by Sony Music Vision in partnership with Sony Music Entertainment Canada and Vermilion Films.

"This last couple of years has been such a challenge for me, the journey from discovering my condition to learning how to live with and manage it, but not to let it define me," Dion said in the press release Tuesday. "As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realized how much I have missed it, of being able to see my fans. During this absence, I decided I wanted to document this part of my life to try to raise awareness of this little-known condition, to help others who share this diagnosis."

Prime Video has yet to announce a premiere date for the film.
