Man who made epic video while stuck in airport actually got to meet Celine Dion

8 July 2014 / 2 years 3 months ago

A die-hard fan of Celine Dion, Richard Dunn, recently made a video filming himself lip-synching to "All By Myself" in an epic fashion while being stuck at Las Vegas' airport.

The video filmed on Dunn's cellphone, has since gone viral worldwide and has garnered more than 13 million views, receiving praise for its creativity and pure entertainment.

Richard filmed his incredible video posted on YouTube last month while stranded overnight in our empty airport after giving up seats on two Delta flights home to Atlanta in exchange for travel vouchers for a return visit.

What he probably never expected was that Celine Dion actually filmed a short YouTube video with an invitation for him to “come back and visit” her.

According to Las Vegas Sun, Richard and his family and friends then flew in for the July 4th weekend and met with Celine after her performance Friday night.

They posed for a group photograph.

Richard said afterward: “This is a once-in-a-lifetime memory I never thought would happen but will last forever.”
