With the tragic news of Thérèse Tanguay Dion's passing today, this memory of her will make anyone smile. On her 91st birthday, Céline Dion's mother teamed up with the Canadian icon, who also happens to be her youngest daughter, to sing what must have been an unforgettable and beautiful duet.

Back on March 20, 2018, Dion took to her Instagram page to share a heartwarming photo of her and her mother, both wearing elegant dresses, holding microphones, and singing passionately into one another's eyes.

"Happy Birthday, Mom! You are an infinite source of comfort and inspiration. I love you, Céline xx," the "My Heart Will Go On" singer captioned the intimate post.

Unfortunately for fans of both Thérèse and Céline, there isn't any audio or video from the magical moment, but if you close your eyes and imagine hard enough, you can hear both Dion's powerful voices working together to create a beautiful birthday melody for the matriarch of the family.

According to the youngest Dion's biography page on her website, Thérèse actually helped write her daughter's first song, along with Céline's older brother, Jacques.

The family would then go on to send a copy of Céline's first recording to René Angélil who, little did they know at the time, would go on to become both the singer's manager and husband. 

Unfortunately, Angélil lost his battle with cancer and died just two days before his 74th birthday, on January 14, 2016. Dion shared a heartwarming post to commemorate his loss on her Instagram earlier this week.

Dion also shared a beautiful family photo for her mother's 90th birthday a few years back, captioning it, "What a privilege for all of us to still have you around. Happy 90th birthday mom! We love you."

The 51-year-old has not yet made a post about her mother's passing on Instagram, but it will likely be coming later today or this week. The singer has a show in Miami this evening and is still set to perform as far as we know.
