All By Myself, Celine Dion? Not anymore. It seems the pop sensation has found herself a brand new backup singer.

After writing a fan-letter to the Québécoise singer last Friday, a 7-year-old girl was invited to the stage to help Dion, 50, sing one of her many fan-favourite hits, I Surrender.

The young girl, Anjali Singh, travelled from L.A. with her parents to see Dion at one of her remaining residency shows at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum in Las Vegas.

As Singh started singing the 2002 classic, the 4,000-strong venue broke out into applause before even Dion herself praised the aspiring singer.

The My Heart Will Go On singer continued to ask for an autograph.

“If she goes back to America’s Got Talent, then maybe she’s going to win, and I’m going [to want] an autograph.

“Can you sign this for me?” she joked. “My name is Celine…”

Since her debut at the Colosseum, Dion has played over 1,000 shows to at least 4.5 million fans.

The superstar recently reflected on her history at Caesars Palace and revealed that the longstanding residency will be coming to an end this year.

“Las Vegas has become my home and performing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been a big part of my life for the past two decades. It’s been an amazing experience and I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see us throughout the years.”

“Every show we do at the Colosseum will feel very special right up until the final one,” she concluded.

The Celine residency debuted in 2011 at The Colosseum. After a run of more than eight years, Dion will play her final show at the legendary venue this June.
