Celine Dion Will Sing a New Song for the Beauty and the Beast Reboot
It's a tale as old as time—and it's getting a brand new musical chapter. Celine Dion is producing upcoming music for the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack. Over 25 years after she performed the Disney film's title track as a duet, the iconic singer revealed that she is singing an all-new number in the live-action reboot.
"I am thrilled to announce that I'll be performing an all-new original song, 'How Does a Moment Last Forever,' for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast. Being a part of the original film was such a magical experience in my life, and I'm truly honored to be a part of this film again," she wrote on Instagram.
