Rene had endured a long fight against cancer before passing away just two days before his 74th birthday.
He had been married to Celine for 21 years and as well as serving as her manager since she was a teenager.

People magazine shed some light on the state of her mind. 'Her heart is in pieces,' a source told the publication. 'There are no words. She's in extreme grief right now. She's extremely heartbroken. But she's putting on a brave face.'
The 47-year-old singer is now preparing for both of their funerals with René's taking place on Friday and Daniel's on Tuesday.

People were seen lining up outside the church, where Celine and René wed in 1994. It is believe the performer will show up to for 30 minutes to receive condolences, according to The Montreal Gazette.   

The funeral will be officiated by the Most Reverend Christian Lépine, Archbishop of Montreal, according to the Gazette.
Last week Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard announced a national funeral would be held to honour Angélil, who was born in Montreal. 'We were all touched by the death of René Angélil,' Couillard said. 'Quebecers will have a chance to pay tribute to a man who had an impact on the cultural landscape of our nation.' 

The couple are superstars in their native Canada and the funeral will be televised on three networks, according to TMZ.
In accordance with Rene’s wishes two of Celine’s songs will play during the service. The Canadian beauty will not sing at the memorial.
Angélil planned out his funeral so that the burden wouldn't lie with the singer once he had passed. René reportedly wanted everything prepared, even though he didn't know when it would happen.
On Saturday reported exclusively the performer used her Las Vegas show in recent weeks as a tribute to the man she loved, knowing that his long battle against cancer was close to being lost.
And he used it to make his final public appearance, clearly frail, but smiling and waving on a video he knew would be played to her fans.

Her performances have been canceled until the end of February, but she was a trooper until the night before he died.
Celine is scheduled to perform at Caesars Palace on February 23 in Las Vegas.
