Now, you can get to see the French Canadian singer belt out that classic and more hits as she's set to stage a two-night concert on 3 and 4 July later this year.

Best known for "My Heart Will Go On", "The Power of Love" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now", Celine Dion, is coming to perform in Bangkok for the first time, Bec-Tero Entertainment announced Friday morning. Dion will also perform in Macau, Singapore, Jakarta, Taipei and Bangkok.

Celine Dion, one of the world's most famous pop singers, will be performing in Singapore for the first time ever in July.

She now has an ongoing Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where she has played over 1,000 shows to over 4 million fans.

Tickets for her Manila show will go on sale to the public beginning January 18 at 10AM.

Toyota and Lexus vehicles will add Amazon Alexa this year
One of the more eagerly covered gadgets of CES this year is a set of $1,000 (£740) smart glasses made by Vuzix. Needless to say that Alexa will instantly eclipse native assistant Cortana with its humungous count of skills.

With that the fan then grabs the microphone and growls "don't touch me" at Dion's bodyguard Olivier.

"I can't wait to be there with you. But you know what, I'm glad you came closer to me", she added. I want to say thank you to all of you, because for maybe five minutes we had given this lady a moment to talk.

"I'm glad that. I thought you just wanted to come closer to me".

Footage has emerged of Celine Dion handling a drunk stage invader incredibly gracefully, even as the overzealous fan humped her leg. "I'm glad you came up onstage tonight", Dion tells the woman. "Be well", she said in a social media video.

She said she would love to customize her repertoire per country.
