Five-time Grammy winner Celine Dion will perform an all-new original song, How Does A Moment Last Forever, for Disney’s film Beauty and the Beast. The song will also be included in the film’s soundtrack. Scored by Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken who has also penned the number with lyricist and three-time Oscar winner, Tim Rice, the song is an emotional ballad. Dion originally performed the duet Beauty and the Beast scored by Menken with Peabo Bryson for the animated film of the same name, that released in 1991. Portions of the song are performed throughout the current version and interpolated into the underscore before Dion’s full-length version debuts in the film’s custom main-on-end title design.

Says Dion, “Being a part of the original Beauty and the Beast was such a magical experience in my life, and I’m truly honoured to be a part of this film again.” The song became an instant classic and went on to receive the Academy Award, Golden Globe and three Grammy Awards. The original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Walt Disney Records on March 10, 2017.

Directed by Bill Condon, Beauty and the Beast releases in United States on March 17. It stars  Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson, Sir Ian McKellen and Stanley Tucci in pivotal roles.
