There is always something exciting going on with Disney but it never gets old when
I hear something brand new.
The latest news from Disney is tht five-time Grammy winning and best selling recording artist, Celine Dion will perform an all-new original song, "How Does A Moment Last Forever," for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast. This awesome new song will be included on the film's soundtrack and was written by eight-time Oscar winning composer, Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid and Aladdin) and veteran lyricist and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (The Lion King and Evita.) "How Does A Moment Last Forever" is an emotional ballad about holding onto life's precious moments. Portions of the song are performed throughout the film and terpolated into the underscore before Dion's full-length version debuts in the film's custom main on end title design.
Celine Dion says, "Being a part of the original "Beauty and the Beast" was such a magical experience in my life, and I"m truly honored to be a part of this film again."
President of Music for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Production, Mitchell Leib, approached the artist on behalf of the project with the idea of recording one of the three new songs written for the film. "Celine was the unanimous choice of the filmmakers and studio to perfrom this song." says Leib, "And everyone involved with the film is thrilled she agreed to be part of this new live-action adaptation."
Dion originally performed the duet "Beauty and the Beast" ~ featuring Menken's haunting melody and two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman's unforgettable lyrics ~ with Peobo Bryson for the animated film. The song became an instant classic and went on to receive an Academy Award, Golden Globe and three Grammy Awards.
Menken also provides the film score along with new recordings of the classic songs from the animated film written by himself and Ashman. The original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Walt Disney Records on March 10, 2017. The pre-order is available now at http://disneymusic.co/BeautySndtrkP.
