Thérèse Tanguay Dion has sadly died. "I love you Mom", she wrote. "We dedicate tonight's show to you and I'll sing to you with all my heart", said the singer, who was to perform later in Miami.

This past summer, Claudette Dion, Therese Dion's eldest child, announced that her mother had been dealing with several significant health issues, including memory loss and hearing and vision impairment. He was impressed by her voice, and took her on.

"Maman Dion", as she was commonly known, was 92.

She also founded the Foundation Maman Dion in 2006 to support the education of children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The grandmother of 32, Dion had 48 great-grandchildren and was great-great-grandmother to six others, TVA said. When you wrote my very first song, "It Was Only A Dream" who knew that it would become a reality?
