Céline Dion's Bee Gees Tribute Performance Had A Very Personal Meaning, Too

Music and memories never die.

The incomparable Céline Dion took to the stage at last night's Stayin' Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees and blew everyone away with a showstopping performance. There were cheers, of course, but there were also a few tears, too.

Dion was just one of the many artists who came together for this memorable occasion — including Ed Sheeran, Tori Kelly, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Demi Lovato, Pentatonix, and many more — but it was the Canadian legend who had probably the deepest connection, for many reasons, to the Bee Gees themselves.

The 49-year-old performed "Immortality," a song the Brothers Gibb composed especially for her. The track, which also features the Bee Gees, was released from Dion's 1997 album titled Let's Talk About Love and was a worldwide hit. Here's the music video:

"I sing it with love for Barry [Gibb], and in memory of Robin [Gibb], Maurice [Gibb], and Andy [Gibb], as well as for my beloved brother, Daniel [Dion], and my husband, René [Angélil]," Dion said in dedication, according to Yahoo. After the song ended, she hugged Barry — the last remaining Gibb and expressed her thanks and love.

Check out a fan-recorded version of Dion singing "Immortality" (we'll update with an official video when one is live) or check out the full special on CBS' website:
