LOS ANGELES — Celine Dion honored the victims of the attacks in Paris at Sunday’s American Music Awards.

Dion performed a rendition of Edith Piaf’s “Hymne à L’Amour” in French at the ceremony to pay tribute to those affected by last week’s attacks.

American Music Awards producer Larry Klein says the ceremony’s producers wanted to show solidarity.

“Hymne à L’Amour” was written by Piaf as a tribute to lover Marcel Cerdan. He died in a plane crash in 1949.
