Celine Dion partied with other queens to mark the release of her new album, Courage.

The "My Heart Will Go On" singer, clad in silver, made a surprise appearance Thursday at the Drag Queen Show Palace Restaurant & Bar in New York City.

There, flanked by drag performers on stage, Dion sang a karaoke performance to her new song "Flying on My Own." Dion also gave an emotional dedication to her late husband, Rene Angelil, that included a kiss directed to heaven, reports the New York Post.

Dion is no stranger to karaoke. Her episode of "Carpool Karaoke" on The Late Late Show With James Corden, in which she sings her own greatest hits alongside the host, has garnered more than 20 million views since its May release.

At an April event in Los Angeles announcing the album and a surprise world tour, which is now under way, Dion discussed how the track was dedicated to Angelil. "I've been through a lot," Dion said, adding that by going on tour, she wanted to show Angelil that "I'm fine." The singer recently wrapped up a long-running Las Vegas residency.

In a bilingual music video for the song released Wednesday, Dion wept as she sang the lyrics. "Courage don't you dare fail me now / 'Cause it's not easy / When you're not with me," she sang.
