LISTEN: Céline Dion Releases Beauty And The Beast Song ‘How Does a Moment Last Forever’
Ahead of the blockbuster’s release in theatres next Friday (Mar. 17), the soundtrack for Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast has landed on streaming services.
Among the songs are a new ballad from Céline Dion, who returned to record a song 26 years after recording the title track for the 1991 original. (Though the film version was sung by actress Angela Lansbury).
The song, titled "How Does a Moment Last Forever," was written by composer Alan Menken – the same person behind the music from the original. Dion’s song plays over the movie’s credits.
"How does a moment last forever? / How can a story never die? / It is love we must hold onto / Never easy, but we try / Sometimes our happiness is captured / Somehow, our time and place stand still / Love lives on inside our hearts and always will," Dion sings.
