Therese’s death comes just two days after the fourth anniversary of the death of Celine’s husband, Rene Angelil. Thursday also marked the fourth anniversary of the passing of her brother Daniel.

Celine is currently on her Courage world tour and is scheduled to perform in Miami over the weekend, but it’s unclear whether or not the shows will go ahead.
