Celine Dion has kept a relatively low profile since she first revealed problems with her health back in October 2021 – but her latest milestone couldn't go unrecognized.

On Thursday, the singer – who revealed in a video in December 2022, which you can watch below, that she has been diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder called stiff person syndrome – celebrated 25 years since her unforgettable performance of 'My Heart Will Go On' at the 1998 Oscars.

What's more, to mark the occasion, the music video for the song – which was the soundtrack to 1997's Titanic – has had a complete makeover.

Celine's team took to her Instagram account to share a clip of the "upgraded and reimagined" video, which features the performer in perfect clarity belting out the iconic track.

It added: "Newly transferred from the original 35mm film reels and assembled in a brand new 4K edit, this performance-focused video features exclusive, never-before-seen footage from the original 1997 'My Heart Will Go On' video shoot."

Celine's followers loved the trip down memory lane and were quick to comment, with one responding: "Legendary. Iconic. A cultural reset. A masterpiece."

A second said: "The one and only! Amazing singer, incredible woman. Thank you so very much, Celine, for so many touching songs and moments. May God bless you! We love you."

Celine first publicly revealed she was suffering from poor health in October 2021. At the time, she revealed she was battling "severe and persistent muscle spasms" so was forced to delay her Las Vegas shows, and she's not taken to the stage since.

In December 2022, she shared her diagnosis with fans, posting an emotional video in which she said that stiff person syndrome impacts "one in a million people," before explaining how she is treating the condition.
