Celine Dion Offers Heartbreaking Insight Into Finding Her Legendary Voice Again Amid Health Woes

Celine Dion is offering fans new insight into the physical impacts of her battle with stiff person syndrome.

The "My Heart Will Go On" songstress sat down with Today's Hoda Kotb for a new interview, set to air on NBC at 10 p.m. this evening, June 11, where she revealed that she and her team had to work hard to find her voice again after the disease began to affect her.

The legendary vocalist sang through the line, "'Cause I'm your lady," mimicking working to find the right placement for, "And you're my man," explaining that she would start to panic.

"And the more you panic the more you spasm, and the more you spasm," she continued, blowing out an anxious puff of air. But she pushed through and went on stage anyway, where she said she "started to sound more nasal."

"My whole team had to just, they were trying to find my voice, too," she concluded before the preview clip posted to Instagram ended.

Earlier this week, Dion gave a gruesome update about her diagnosis, telling Kotb that the rare neurological disorder, which causes stiffness and rigidity in her muscles, that singing can be so painful for her these days it feels “like somebody’s strangling you.”

"It’s like somebody’s pushing your larynx, pharynx, this way," she went on, demonstrating with her hand over her throat. "It’s like you’re talking like that, and you cannot go higher or lower."

But in another preview clip from the interview with Kotb, Dion expressed her determination to return to the stage someday. "Even if I have to crawl," she said. "Not just because I have to, or because I need to. It's because I want to," she said, her voice watery with emotion. "And I miss it."
