Surprise! Céline Dion Serenades Couple Getting Married in Vegas with Help from Jimmy Kimmel
Céline Dion serenaded the couple with a rendition of her song "Because You Loved Me"
Their hearts will go on!
On Friday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel, 51, and Dion, 51, pulled off the grand gesture for Jason and Kate, both majors in the Air Force, while the late-night show taped a special week of episodes in Kimmel’s hometown of Vegas.
“I’m sorry to interrupt. What were you guys doing?” Kimmel joked as he broadcasted in from the screen behind the couple. “I was wondering if I might step in and you might let me preside over your ceremony.”
After the okay from Jason and Kate, actor David Spade walked in the door, saying that the happy couple seemed “too sober” to be getting married in Vegas. “Guillermo, can we get some shots in here?” Spade, 54, asked Kimmel’s trusty sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez, who brought the couple some tequila shots.
After the pair said their “I do’s,” Kimmel had one more question for them: “Did you hire a wedding singer?”
Jason and Kate said no, but Kimmel had it all under control, introducing Dion who walked into the chapel singing her song “Because You Loved Me” as the couple shared their first dance.
Dion, who has been performing in Vegas for decades, also calls Sin City her home away from home.
“It’s time for a change; time to hit the road,” Dion told an enthusiastic crowd. “So many people came to us, but now we really think it’s time for us to go and see them. So I am extremely excited to do the world tour.”
Dion’s venture will also come with a new album that is due “roughly” around November. The LP will feature a song called “Courage,” which inspired both the name of the album and the tour.

“We all go through a lot of things in life, we all do,” Dion explained. “Whether it’s losing someone, whether it’s a sickness, something that we have to fight, something that life imposes on us. And I went through a lot. Life had given me the tools — my family, the way that I grew up, the way that I was raised, the way we all were raised in my family — to find my inner strength in a way. To find courage to keep going.”
Dion recently opened up to PEOPLE in this week’s issue about all she’s been through in the last few years, including losing husband and manager Rene Angélil to cancer in 2016.
“He gave his all for me,” she said. The mother of three revealed she’s “stronger” after it all, and was proud to say “I’m the boss now.”
“I’ve never felt as beautiful, as strong, and I really think the best is yet to come,” she said.
