Celine Dion performs onstage during the 2015 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Nov/ 22, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

As a tribute to the many lives lost -- and countless lives affected -- by the recent Paris attacks, the AMAs brought out Celine Dion to sing a chanson popularized by French vocal legend Edith Piaf.

Dion sang "Hymne a L'Amour," giving the decades-old song new life with her powerhouse vocals while a montage of Paris landmarks and makeshift memorials outside Le Bataclan appeared on the screen behind her. 

As you would imagine, there were many tears in the audience as she sang. Watch it below.
