Celine Dion

In December 2022, Celine Dion postponed several of her European tour dates, explaining that she'd been diagnosed with a life-altering neurological disorder called stiff person syndrome. "While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all of the spasms that I’ve been having," she said at the time.

Now, a year-and-a-half later, she's ready to share more about her health battle in a new documentary called I Am: Celine Dion, which will stream on Prime Video this summer.

"As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have [realized] how much I have missed it [and] being able to see my fans," Dion said in January, in a statement announcing the project. "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."
