The songstress and family attended the wake of her late husband Rene Angélil on Thursday, while still mourning the loss of Celine’s younger brother Daniel, who also died of cancer just two days after Angélil. Dion consoled hundreds of mourners at the wake, as fans attending the services formed a line that stretched several blocks outside the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal; the same church where the couple married in 1994.
Dion told PEOPLE, “The support we’ve received has been such a blessing.”
Another public memorial for the manager will be held Feb. 3 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, where Dion has a concert residency. Angélil’s funeral service takes place Friday.
