Seal reacted to the death of Joel Schumacher yesterday. On Instagram he performed some of "Kiss from a Rose" -- and to explained how the director of Batman Forever helped turn his career around through his belief in the song. It was Joel's decision to use "Kiss from a Rose" in the closing credits. Seal says the song and its original video had already flopped when it was suggested a second clip using scenes from the film and Seal in a cape. The song went to number-one and received a VMA nomination from MTV.
