Celine Dion Meets ‘All By Myself’ Airport Video Star

...And he was probably lip-syncing from his seat at her Las Vegas show

Richard Dunn isn’t all by himself anymore — the star of the viral lip-syncing video featuring Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” finally met the singer herself.

After Dunn’s video went viral, Dion made a video in response, commenting on the “hilarious” and “touching” video. She also invited him to her show, saying, “But next time, you know, you’re stuck all by yourself at Las Vegas airport for hours and hours, please be my guest at my show.”

Dunn took her up on the offer on the July 4 weekend, with his family in tow.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime memory I never thought would happen but will last forever,” he told the Las Vegas Sun.
