Dion and Angelil, both from Quebec, first met when she was just 13.

He was a 39-year-old music manager still married to his second wife when he decided to devote himself to making her a star.

They started a relationship in 1988, three years after his divorce, but waited another six years before marrying due to sensitivity about how their romance would be publicly perceived. 

Angelil succumbed to throat cancer on January 14, 2016, two days before his 74th birthday.

He was honored by the government of Quebec with a ‘national funeral’ at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal.
