French-Canadian recording artist Celine Dion will be dusting off the old playbook to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Titanic in a few weeks. She will perform her Oscar-winning love song, "My Heart Will Go On," at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards.
The singer announced the performance via her Instagram on Monday afternoon saying, “Thrilled for #BBMAs! Céline will be paying tribute to the 20th Anniversary of Titanic by performing her massive hit "My Heart Will Go On" at the Billboard Music Awards! Don’t miss it, May 21st on ABC! -Team Céline.”
The 49-year-old singer has pumped out a handful of big hits throughout her amazing career, including “The Power of Love,” “Because You Loved Me” and “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now.” Even after 20 years, however, “My Heart Will Go On” is still the song which the majority of music and pop culture fanatics associate her with.
Released back on Dec. 8, 1997, the famous song was included on her own Let's Talk About Love LP, in addition to the Titanic Soundtrack. It would go on to become the highest-selling single in the world the following year. Recently, the Song’s co-writer and composer for Titanic, James Horner, passed away in a plane crash in 2015.
Dion will be joining fellow singing icon, Cher, as one of the previously-announced performers at the upcoming awards show. Cher will be in attendance to receive the show’s Icon Award, in addition to performing her own late-90s mega hit, “Believe.” Ed Sheeran and John Legend have also announced their own performances during the ceremony as well.
Fans can tune in to watch the performance live from Billboard Music Awards on May 21, at 8 p.m. ET.
