“Transforming dreams into miracles is sometimes just a step away. All we need is to believe: believe in life, believe in ourselves, believe in this night and in the present. Children do this… let’s follow their lead. Never let the child inside you disappear. This is the miracle that I wish for you tonight.”
-Celine, speaking to her fans.

Kevin started this event with his family during his battle with pancreatic cancer. Proceeds will go to pancreatic cancer research and the CODE 3 FOR A CURE Foundation, a charity dedicated to assisting firefighters who are battling cancer, which Celine supports.
