Celine Dion shows in Las Vegas would continue
In the days following the Las Vegas tragedy, Celine Dion decided that her performance would continue. The singer took the stage at the Coliseum at Caesars Palace on Tuesday October 3 and gave an emotional talk on the stage before announcing that she would donate all the proceeds of the concert that night to the families of the victims of the senseless tragedy.
“The reason I decided to play this show so soon is more than singing. It is to show love and support for those who are affected,” she said softly to the crowd, according to the movies obtained from E! News. “Sunday we have lost too many innocent souls and many still suffer. But tonight, we will let these families know that we support them and that we will help them through their tragic loss.”

“They will need a lot of love, emotional support, and great financial help. I want you to know that the proceeds for the show tonight are donated to the victim’s families for your account,” she said the crowd applauded and she gave a standing ovation. She also devoted the concert to all victims, their families, the first interviewers, physicians, nurses and heroes who helped at a time of need.
On Sunday 1 October, a guilty one opened fire in a crowd of 22,000 people attending the 91 country music 91 of Route 91 on the Las Vegas strip. Fifty-nine people were killed and more than 500 wounded during the horrible event, which has now been identified as the deadliest mass shootout in modern US history.
After the tragedy, Celine led Instagram to pay tribute to the victims and their loved ones. “Praying for all innocent victims and their families in Las Vegas,” wrote the 49-year-old star.
