On Tuesday (May 23rd 2017), Celine Dion opened her heart to the victims of the terror attack at Manchester Arena on Monday night and their families by encouraging her fans to join hands in an emotional moment of silence during her show in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

'Come on, everybody, stand up, and you know what, raise your hands and join them to the person on either side of you, please', she told her crowd. 'Let's stand up for Manchester and show them that we care. We're filming this and we're going to send it across the ocean to those beautiful souls, so let's do that. That's it.'

No less than 22 people were killed during the bombing following the Ariana Grande concert, which is now known to have been perpetrated by 22-year-old suicide bomber Salman Abedi. Following the horror, Celine also took to social media to express her sadness and show her support.
