Iconic superstar Celine Dion opens up about her battle with a life-altering illness and an uncertain return to concert performances and touring in the official trailer for the Prime Video documentary, I Am: Celine Dion, which dropped on Thursday.

Director Irene Taylor’s film for Amazon MGM Studios cycles between footage of a younger Dion hitting the highest notes during her earlier career, and her current health struggle with Stiff Person Syndrome, a life-altering disease first diagnosed in 2022.

The trailer reveals Dion talking directly to her fans, including during vulnerable moments of emotion and release.

“I’m working everyday. But I have to admit, it’s been a struggle,” the iconic songstress says at one point in the trailer as she hints at a possible return to the stage and touring. The documentary offers behind-the-scenes looks at Dion and her children and a health journey that has her coping with her illness.

The incurable condition results in progressive, severe muscle stiffness, which has impacted Dion’s use of her voice to sing and perform. “I miss it so much, the people. I miss them,” an emotional Dion reveals before footage of her in the recording booth signals her battle to return to the concert stage — which includes physical and vocal therapy to regain control of her muscles — continues.
