Celine Dion reveals Pink wrote song to help her 'keep going' after husband's death

There's good news for Celine Dion fans! In addition to a new French-language album to be released next month, the superstar singer is already working on a new English-language record, too.

And she's revealed a big detail about that upcoming release — one song will be devoted to life after the loss of her husband and manager, René Angélil, and that song comes courtesy of Pink.

And she loves Pink even more now, having been presented with the moving piece for her upcoming album.

"At the (Billboard Music Awards), when I saw her, I said, 'For you to take the time to really write a song, to give me a tool, a piece of luggage to help me to move forward, to walk, to keep going ...'" Dion said, trailing off.

She's clearly grateful. But the 48-year-old is also reserved when it comes to giving out any other details — except one: "It's called 'Recovering,'" she said of the track.
