Celine Dion was a vision of elegance as she graced the screening of her highly anticipated documentary, I Am: Celine Dion, on Monday evening in New York City. 

The event, held at the chic Paris Theater, was a night to remember as the music icon opened up about her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) and the profound impact it has had on her life and career.

The 56-year-old songstress dazzled in a cream-colored ensemble that exuded timeless sophistication. 

Celine wore a silky white blouse adorned with a chic bow detail at the neckline, perfectly complemented by a matching maxi skirt.

SPS, as described by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, is a progressive condition that affects muscle control, leading to stiffness and spasms. 

As the illness advances, it can severely impact mobility, making everyday movements a challenge and increasing vulnerability to falls and injuries.

In the documentary, Celine shares her personal struggles with the symptoms of SPS, which include stiff muscles in the arms, legs, and torso, as well as heightened sensitivity to noise, emotional distress, and touch.
