Rene Angelil, husband of Celine Dion, has passed

This continues to be an awful week for the world of entertainment. While not an artist himself, Angelil was Dion’s mentor and husband and crafted her long and successful career.

Much like Bowie and Iman, theirs was a true love story.

They seem to be coming fast and furious now. RIP. Angelil had survived cancer twice before.

Angelil was a singer himself in the 1960s, though I think he was a regional artist in Quebec.

And she has lost her older brother just two days after her husband. 2016 is not looking good for Celine Dion.
