Celine Dion got emotional with "GMA's" Deborah Roberts when she spoke about taking a year off to care for her husband and manager, René Angélil, while he battled throat cancer.

"He can't use his mouth," Dion revealed while wiping away tears. "He can't eat so I feed him," she told Roberts. "He's got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day."

Dion also has three sons with Angélil to look after. The couple married in 1994 and this is Angélil's second time with cancer. He was first diagnosed in 1999, and he had a tumor removed from his throat in 2013.

"We are taking life one day at a time," the singer said. "We are choosing to live."

The 46 year old also announced her return to her Las Vegas residency after taking a leave of absence to care for her husband. She said it was his wish that she return to the stage.

"It was Rene's wish that I come back," Dion said in a statement. "While my family will always be my priority, my fans are just as important to me. I look forward to performing again for all of you starting August 27th, and more importantly having Rene there with me. Thank you for giving me this time I needed to spend with my family."
