26 years ago, Céline Dion had teamed up with Peabo Bryson to record the theme song of the cartoon The Beauty and the Beast. When Walt Disney executives asked her to reiterate by performing a song for the new real-life version with Emma Watson, which will be released on March 17th in theaters, she could not accept it right away.
“For my first Beauty and the Beast, the decision was made with my husband,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Now I make my own decisions. It’s a little more difficult. I could not say yes right away because I felt I was betraying him in a certain way.”
The manager and husband of Céline Dion, René Angélil, died in January 2016. Finally, the Quebec diva is pleased to have agreed to sing How Does a Moment Last Forever for the new Disney movie because it allowed her to return to the past. “I was at the beginning of my career (when I sang The Beauty and the Beast ),” she said. The song put me on track. ”
The new theme song of Beauty and the Beast was recorded by John Legend and Ariana Grande.
