When you're Céline Dion and you turn 50, if you can't perform, the show must still go on - at least on social media.
Canada's favourite chanteuse is currently on a leave from her Caesar's Palace residency in Las Vegas, and has cancelled her performances through April 18, as she recovers from a surgical procedure to correct an ear condition.
So, to celebrate her milestone birthday, Dion treated fans to an adorable throwback photo of a younger her in a pink frilly dress on Instagram, and a Facebook video montage of some of her favourite memories, set to a medley of her biggest hits.
