The Canadian government bestowed one of its highest honors to pop superstar Celine Dion and her husband-manager René Angelil during a ceremony in Quebec City Friday.

Governor General David Johnston presented the insignia of member of the order of Canada to Angelil after he was appointed a member last November.

Dion was given the insignia of companion of the order of Canada.

The high honor came on the eve of Dion's major concert Saturday in Quebec City.

The show is her only concert performance scheduled outside of Las Vegas this year.
