London: Singer Celine Dion is all set to stage a special performance of her Las Vegas residency to benefit a children's charity.
   
Dion, 43, who is a mother of three, was touched by tales of youngsters suffering the blood disorder sickle-cell anaemia and is handing over all the proceeds from her gig to the fundraiser, as reported.
   
"As a mother, I was incredibly moved by the stories that were shared with me regarding the impact this disease has on children.
   
"Participating in this benefit is a way in which I can get involved to positively touch these children's lives. The funds we raise will enable doctors to complete their important research that will allow these children to grow up pain-free and lead longer, more productive lives," she said.
   
The show will take place on January 15 next year.
