A memorial service in honour of late Rene Angelil was held on Thursday, January 21,and Celine Dion and her 15-year-old son Rene-Charles payed their last respects.

The 47-year-old singer greeted thousands of mourners who showed up for the visitation at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal.

Later today, Friday, January 22, Angélil will be laid to rest at a national funeral which will be held at the same church, the Notre-Dame Basilica, where Dion and her husband were married in 1994. The funeral will be live-streamed around the world.

Angélil died at his home in Nevada at the age of 73 on Thursday, January 14, following a long battle with throat cancer.
