Dion made waves in the music industry in 1991 singing the "Beauty and the Beast" title track with Peabo Bryson, which won a Grammy for Best Pop Performance. While Ariana Grande and John Legend took her and Peabo's place on the latest "Beauty" soundtrack, she contributes a completely new song instead, "How Does a Moment Last Forever." According to the tracklist, Kevin Kline's Maurice and Emma Waton's Belle sing the tune before Celine slays it.
"How Does a Moment Last Forever" is suitably sweeping and serene. Accordion and an orchestra back Dion detailing an everlasting romance. Her powerful pipes glide across the tender tune. "But when all else is forgotten / Still our song lives on," she belts. What would've been forgettable in anyone else's hands is powerfully profound under Celine's care. Her newest chapter in the "tale as told as time" is another stunning standout.
"How Does a Moment Last Forever" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" opens in theaters on March 17.
