Many fans gathered outside the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal to pay their respects to the legendary Canadian singer and manager.
Angelil died of throat cancer on Jan. 14, two days before what would have been his 74th birthday.
The program for the wake included a moving message from Dion, who wrote the following in both French and English:
I understood that my career was in a way his masterpiece, his song, his symphony. The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly. I realized that if he ever left us, I would have to continue for him, without him.
Days after her husband’s death, Dion also lost her brother , Daniel, who died at 59 after fighting his own battle with cancer.
