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.

"Where Does My Heart Beat Now," "I Drove All Night," "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," and "J'ai Cherche Ton Coeur" are among the songs used in the video to put a spotlight on these milestones and her "precious moments." The star also shares a snippet of the first song she wrote with her mom and her brother, which, not surprisingly, kicks off the video.
