Los Angeles: Singer-songwriter Celine Dion, who was diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome a few years ago, announced a new feature-length documentary to ‘raise awareness’ about the neurological disorder. The 55-year-old singer’s documentary has been titled ‘I am: Celine Dion’ and will be available for streaming on Prime Video.

According to Celine, the past few years have not been easy. "This last couple of years has been such a challenge for me, the journey from discovering my condition to learning how to live with and manage it, but not to let it define me. As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realised how much I have missed it, of being able to see my fans.”

She further mentioned: "During this absence, I decided I wanted to document this part of my life, to try to raise awareness of this little-known condition, to help others who share this diagnosis.” The intimate documentary will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at Celine's life amid her health struggles.

As per Female First UK, Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon MGM Studios, said: "Celine Dion is a global megastar with a career defined not only by her extraordinary work ethic and passion, but by her dedication to her fans."

He added: “This documentary is a raw, intimate portrayal of a pivotal time in her personal life and career, pulling back the curtain on her journey as she overcomes an unthinkable diagnosis. It’s an honour to be trusted with her story, and we can’t wait to share it with Prime Video audiences around the world.”

The project has been directed by Irene Taylor, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker, and Prime Video is set to announce a release date shortly.
