Singer Celine Dion will receive the Icon award when the Billboard Music Awards are presented in Las Vegas this month.
Following acceptance of her award, Dion will perform her rendition of Queen’s “The Show Must Go On.” The selection is particularly poignant; she returned to the Caesars Palace stage in late February, six weeks after the death of her husband.
Dion’s many awards include six Billboard Music Awards, five Grammys and two Oscars. She has sold near 250 million albums during her 30-year career.
The Billboard award for lifetime achievement is given to artists who have stood the test of time. Past recipients include Neil Diamond (2011), Stevie Wonder (2012) and Prince (2013).
Tickets to the awards show in Las Vegas start at $68 per person.
Viewers on the West Coast will be able to watch the show live on ABC-TV at 5 p.m. May 22.
Those who want to catch her ongoing Las Vegas show at Caesars can purchase tickets for performances through Nov. 26.
