The Canadian singer has cancelled all shows and tours, due to both her and her family's health.

Celine Dion has cleared her calendar of all performances, saying she needs to focus on her health, her husband's health and raising their three young children.

The superstar vocalist is cancelling shows that were slated through March 22, 2015, including a tour of Asia planned for the fall and regular shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Dion's husband, Rene Angelil, had a cancerous tumor removed in December, and she said in a statement Wednesday that the struggle with the disease has taken a toll on her family.

"I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband's healing, and to do so, it's important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children. I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support" she said on her official Facebook page.

Show organizers say the singer also has not recovered from an illness that has inflamed her throat muscles and prevented performances in Las Vegas since July 29.

Fans who bought tickets for future shows are eligible for refunds.
