Following the Paris attacks last week, where 89 people were killed at Le Bataclan concert hall and over 120 people were killed across the city, tributes from musicians have been pouring in. The American Music Awards on Sunday will also honor those affected with a special rendition of Edith Piaf’s “Hymne à L’Amour” by Celine Dion. 

The song – which translates to “Hymm to Love” – will be performed in French. “We felt it was important to show our solidarity in light of the recent events in Paris and all around world,” AMAs producer Larry Klein said in a press release. “Celine’s performance will help us express our feelings through song when words do not suffice.”

The American Music Awards will air live on Sunday, 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
