Celine Dion was one of the artists featured on the soundtrack of the new Disney ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ remake starring Emma Watson and Dan Watson. A movie that was released just last week and has already grossed over $428 million worldwide.
Dion sang the song ‘How Does A Moment Last Forever‘, a song written exclusively for the movie and the first song heard on the ending credits. Emma Watson also sings the song during the movie with a quite beautiful voice, as does Kevin Kline to the music box version.
It’s Celine Dion, though, that adds a special ‘something’ to this song, and it’s maybe why she seems to be chosen to sing songs for movie soundtracks so much? After all, when you can make a quite simple song sound this memorable just by the way you sing it, why would a studio ever choose anyone else?
‘How Does A Moment Last Forever‘ was written by eight-time Oscar winner composer Alan Menken and lyricist Tim Rice. No wonder it’s so pretty.

You can buy the movie soundtrack, which also features songs from Ewan McGregor, Emma Watson, John Legend, Josh Groban, as well as most of the music from the entire movie, on Amazon.
