Amazon Prime has released an emotional new trailer for forthcoming documentary I AM: CELINE DION, which sees the Canadian singer break down in tears.

In the moving clip, the 56-year-old music legend becomes upset as she admits being diagnosed with stiff person syndrome has affected her ability to performĀ – and her candid admission has left her fans crying too.

Directed by Academy Award nominee Irene Taylor, I AM: CELINE DION gives us a raw and honest behind-the-scenes look at the iconic superstarā€™s struggle with the life-altering illness.

Serving as a love letter to her fans, this inspirational documentary highlights the music that has guided her life while showcasing the resilience of the human spirit.

Towards the end of the trailer, the mother-of-three promises her fans that she will do anything to save her voice , which she describes as “the conductor of my life”.

“When your voice brings you joy, you’re the best of yourself. I need my instrument,’ as various clips of Celine recording music and performing over the years plays out.”

“I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder and I wasn’t ready to say anything before, but I’m ready now,” she admits, before adding: ‘I see my life and I love every piece of it.”

Referring to her live performances, she then says: “It’s not hard to do a show, you know, it’s hard to cancel a show.

“I’m working hard every day, but I have to admit, it’s been a struggle. I miss it so much. The people… I miss them.”

The trailer ends with her stating: “If I can’t run, I’ll walk. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl. But I won’t stop, she won’t stop.”
