It is the power of Celine Dion.
After all, the “My Heart Will Go On” singer, who has remained largely out of the public eye amid her struggle with stiff person syndrome, delivered a rare sing-along moment as she riffed with Sonyae Élise backstage at the 2024 Grammys in Los Angeles on February 4.
In a Instagram video shared by the R&B artist, the couple harmonized a few melodies together — including lyrics like “we gon' ride together, baby” and “we don't tell the world” — as they embraced in a sideways hug , while posing for photos.
Sonyae wore a shimmering purple dress with a long matching cape, while the five-time Grammy winner wore an all-white ensemble with a shimmering gold collar.
“Highlights of an ICONIC evening,” the 26-year-old wrote alongside her video montage of the evening, which also included clips from Victoria Monet And SZA. “So inspired and proud of my girls.”
Celine's participation in music's biggest night marked her first public appearance in several months amid her ongoing battle with the rare autoimmune neurological disease, which she announced in December 2022.
