Montreal, Jan 19 (IANS) Celine Dion, who is grappling with personal loss after losing her husband and brother within a couple of days, has denied reports that she will sing at the funeral of her husband Rene Angelil, the singer’s representatives have said.

After reports surfaced that Celine will perform at Angelil’s funeral, her team squashed them away saying that the thought has never crossed the singer’s mind, reports tmz.com.
