“I was never part of any of the meetings that he had where he had to say yes or no. He protected me from Day 1 to for the rest of my life, I am pretty sure of that,” Dion said in her 20-minute speech, which will bring you to tears.
The tribute lasted for more than two hours and included memories shared by friends and colleagues. There were also performances. Although Dion did not sing, an instrumental version of “Because You Loved Me” was played and David Foster sang “The Color Of My Love”, a throwback to the couple’s wedding 21 years ago, bringing Dion to tears.
