Celine Dion gearing up for children charity show

London: Singer Celine Dion is all set to stage a special performance of her Las Vegas residency to benefit a children`s charity.

Dion, 43, who is a mother of three, was touched by tales of youngsters suffering the blood disorder sickle-cell anaemia and is handing over all the proceeds from her gig to the fundraiser, Daily Express reported.

"As a mother, I was incredibly moved by the stories that were shared with me regarding the impact this disease has on children.

"Participating in this benefit is a way in which I can get involved to positively touch these children`s lives. The funds we raise will enable doctors to complete their important
research that will allow these children to grow up pain-free and lead longer, more productive lives," she said.

The show will take place on January 15 next year.
