“We were one, so when he passed away, I kinda felt that for a moment that there was just one half of me,” said the singer in the short film based on her new album, ‘Courage’. 

Celine said the experience of recording the album without René, who was also her producer, was tough on her. 

“It was really hard because this is my first English album without René,” she said. 

But, the singer said: “I’ve decided to rebuild my second half.”

She had to tell herself words like, “I’m a warrior, I’m a mother, I have strength and I’m gonna show them that I can do this.”
