On November 15, 1998, Céline appeared acting as herself in Touched By An Angel, during the 100th episode "Psalm 151" on the US network CBS.
Summary: In a park Audrey celebrates her son Petey's birthday. Petey tries to blow out his candles but is racked with coughing, an effect of his disease, Cystic Fibrosis. Knowing is death is near, Petey begins to compile a list of the things he wants to do before he dies. Among his items, the most difficult is introducing his best friend Celine to her idol, Celine Dion. Later, Celine is blindfolded and taken to a concert hall to meet Céline Dion in her dressing room before the show. During the concert Céline Dion sings "Love can move mountains" to the children. At the end of the concert Petey becomes very sick and he will soon die. Petey is brought home and, while he sleeps, Audrey discovers his list, including the wish that Audrey would finish the song she began to write when he was born. Audrey works all night to finish the song, and in the morning wakes Petey to perform her song, The 151st Psalm. Petey tells Andrew, "It is finished," and the young boy dies. Monica crosses the final item off of Petey's list: "Go to Heaven".
This story is very similar to Celine's one. Céline Dion had a niece, Karine attacked by Cystic Fibrosis, who died in 1993, on Celine's arms when she was singing Les oiseaux du Bonheur to her.
Her appearance fee for this episode is donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The shooting took place in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
