NEVADA – Céline Dion has released a new music video for “Courage,” a track off the album of the same name — which marks the first new music since her husband died — and it’s a tearjerker.
The video is shot completely in black-and-white, showing the singer 51, as both a silhouette on a white background and against a black backdrop with lights on her. Towards the end of the four-and-a-half-minute ballad, Dion’s eyes well up with tears and begin to trickle down her cheek while singing the words:
“Courage don’t you dare fail me now / Cause it’s not easy / When you’re not with me.”
The powerful words about missing someone and having the “courage” to get through a loss likely are very personal to Dion, who lost her husband, Rene Angélil, and brother Daniel, only two days apart in 2016. Angélil, who was her manager and credited with her rise to fame died after a years-long battle with throat cancer. Daniel died two days later after a battle with throat, tongue and brain cancer.
Dion first debuted three tracks off her album, her first new music in six years after 2013’s “Loved Me Back to Life,” in September.
