Generous Celine Dion is giving the proceeds from one special Las Vegas, Nevada, show to Unicef's tsunami relief effort in south east Asia.

The Canadian singer will hand over what she hopes will be in excess of $1 million (GBP526,315) from her upcoming Mother's Day performance of her show, A NEW DAY.

She says, "Like everyone else in the world, I've been devastated by the loss and suffering of so many in South Asia.

"As a mother, I cannot imagine the pain that they are experiencing."
