Celine Dion documentary “I Am: Celine Dion” will give fans a firsthand look at the superstar’s life after being diagnosed with Stiff-Person Syndrome (SPS) in December 2022.

Amazon and MGM Studios announced on Tuesday that the documentary about the 56-year-old Canadian singer’s legendary career and her battle with the rare neurological disease will hit the streaming site globally on June 25.

“Directed by Academy Award nominee Irene Taylor, I AM: CELINE DION gives us a raw and honest behind-the-scenes look at the iconic superstar’s struggle with a life-altering illness,” the post shared on Instagram by Amazon, Dion, and the studio read.

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

Dion previously released a statement about the upcoming documentary, calling it an opportunity to “document this part of my life, to try to raise awareness of this little-known condition, to help others who share this diagnosis,” People magazine noted.

“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,” the singer said.

“As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realized how much I have missed it, of being able to see my fans,” she added.


In 2022, the “All By Myself” singer and mother of three revealed her diagnosis after canceling several of her concerts.

“Hello, everyone,” Dion said. “I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reach out to you. I miss you all so much and can’t wait to be on stage talking to you in person. As you know I’ve always been an open book and I wasn’t ready to say anything before but I’m ready now.”

“I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time and it’s been really difficult for me to face my challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through,” she added.

“Recently I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called the stiff-person syndrome which affects one in a million people.”

SPS has been described as a progressive disease that leaves its victims as “human statues” who cannot walk or talk, the Daily Mail noted.
