Celine Dion Postpones Concert Due To Coronavirus?
Celine Dion is on a tour of the United States for her Courage World Tour. However, following an unforeseen illness, she has canceled her concert in many places in the U.S.
The My Heart Will Go On singer initially delayed her concerts in Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh due to “common cold.” Then, after a couple of days, she proceeded to cancel multiple concerts all over the country due to the illness.
But, according to the singer herself, it is just a minor cold. She is not a victim of the Coronavirus and has clarified that she has tested negative for the virus.
