Get the tissues out, the show — and our hearts — will go on!  Céline Dion‘s 15-year-old son, René-Charles presented her with the Icon Award for lifetime achievement at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, and there wasn’t a dry eye in sight when she gave her emotional acceptance speech.

Céline accepted the honour which celebrated her illustrious career in the music industry, spanning over three decades. Her beautifully moving and powerful speech not only thanked her devoted fans and loved ones, but paid tribute to her late husband, René Angélil, who died earlier in the year.

She also accepted the award not only from Seal, who introduced a montage of highlights from her successful career.

Prepare for all the feels!
