Last week, Dion announced she had to postpone the first four Montreal performances due to doctor's orders that she take a week off to rest and recover from the illness.

“For me, its a lot harder to postpone a show than to do a show and Im so sorry for disappointing you,” she says. “We got off to such a great start in Quebec and I was really looking forward to Montreal. When I perform for you I always want to give you everything Ive got. Sorry again Montreal and thank you for believing in me.”

In the newly posted video, she says she was "really looking forward to Montreal," and thought she'd be better by now. 

The video, shown below, features Céline in what Id like to call hear Healing Outfit. Still stylish, but meant for ultimate coziness. She speaks French as she addresses her fans in Montréal, apologizing for having to postpone the last two of her six shows.

"For me, it's a lot harder to postpone a show than to do a show. I'm so sorry for disappointing you."

The first four of the six shows will now go down between November 18th and November 22nd, and the last two of the six happening on February 18th and 19th, all still at the Centre Bell.

"It's hard just waiting to get better and I feel like I'm letting you down. I know it's because of you that I can do what I love."

This is on the tails of Célines need to postpone four other shows scheduled for Montreal. The singer was hit with a throat virus last week after performing in Québec City. 

The shows scheduled at Montreal's Bell Centre on Sept. 26, 27, 30 and Oct. 1 were postponed to dates later in November.

Dion's world tour kicked off Sept. 18 with a performance at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City as she promotes the Nov. 15 release of her new album, "Courage."

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.
