EXCLUSIVE: Celine Dion on Life After Rene Angelil's Death: 'I Am the Leader of My Family'

Celine Dion-'90s icon, vocal powerhouse, and singer of those emotional heart-wrenching hits that make you feel all the feels (otherwise known as the flawless soundtrack to a breakup), and burgeoning fashion star-is funneling her creative talent into a line of bags.

ET's Cameron Mathison caught up with the 48-year-old singer in Las Vegas on Tuesday as she promoted the launch of "The Celine Dion Collection" of handbags, luggage and accessories with the Bugatti Group, where she opened up about how creating the collection helped her through a hard year, and how Angelil will always be with her.

"I still have my power; my husband gave me so [many] tools for the rest of my life", she told "Extra".

"I feel stronger", she said.

"It's been, I don't want to say 20, is it 18 years ago? I stand up for my kids and I feel like I'm the leader of the family", she added.

Earnhardt Jr., Keselowski deadlocked atop Daytona 500 odds
Earnhardt hasn't won a Cup title, but has been named the sport's Most Popular Driver for the last 14 seasons. He started third past year , and missed half of the season due to a concussion.

And the "My Heart Will Go On" singer says her children "didn't suffer" with the news of their father's passing, as she "told them the truth" about his condition.

"My oldest, 16, is not the man of the house [because] you have to have your own dreams". "They didn't see my husband the last three years of their life, so they didn't get to know him so well. They are helping me, I am helping them - it's mutual", she admitted.

While her original Beauty And The Beast duet with Peabo Bryson was a huge success, she nearly turned down the new BATB single, saying "I see the movie, and it's great, but there's something inside of me that's shaking a little bit".

Asked if she had any parting advice for the 35-year-old singer, Celine said: "I have twins. Would you consider singing this new 'Beauty and the Beast" song, 30 years later?' and I'm like, 'Uh, I have to listen to it again, because I need to be professional'. "I kind of talked to Rene", she says, gesturing to the sky, "And he said 'You should'". "'Beauty and the Beast" had brought me to where I am today.

"I'm very proud of [Rene-Charles]", the star shared.
