Shania Twain is wishing fellow vocalist Celine Dion the best as the 55-year-old fellow Canadian struggles with Stiff Person Syndrome.
Twain opens up to about her admiration for the longtime performer, saying, «I’m such a fan of Celine’s voice. She’s a one-of-a-kind, extraordinary vocalist and entertainer.»While the singers have crossed paths through the years, 57-year-old Twain says that she hasn't recently connected with the «My Heart Will Go On» vocalist. «I hope to be able to connect with her at some point,» she shares. «I think it’s gotta be so difficult, and I know — only speaking from my experience — how horrifying it is to think that something is preventing you from singing, or interfering with that joy in your life.
So I just pray that she is able to overcome it and she will be up there [on stage] singing for us all again.»In December, Dion first announced her diagnosis with Stiff Person Syndrome, which is «a rare disorder of motor function characterized by involuntary stiffness of axial muscles and superimposed painful muscle spasms, which are often induced by startle or emotional stimuli,» according to the Mayo Clinic.Earlier this month, Dion's sister, Claudette, gave an update on the GRAMMY winner's health in an interview with Le Journal de Montreal.
She shared that their sister, Linda, moved into the singer's home, where she also lives with her three sons, René-Charles, Eddy, and Nelson, to aid in her care.«When I call her and she's busy, I speak to my sister Linda who lives with her and tells me that she's working hard.
