There are certain singers who have the ability to move us in rather remarkable ways. In some cases, their songs may fill us with goosebumps and give us chills that last long after the music has stopped. At the very least, they have the ability to raise us out of a down day and help us to get on with life again.
Celine Dion is one of those singers, and millions of people around the world absolutely love what she is able to do with her voice. Many of us recognise her singing as soon as we hear it, what you may not know is that she was chosen to sing an arrangement of the theme song from Beauty and the Beast in 1991. It was released as a single from the soundtrack to play on the radio.
Disney loved her voice but they didn’t want to be directly related with an obscure singer, so they had her record it as a duet with a more popular singer. Little did they know that this was going to be such a success for her and it would establish her as a star, all on her own.
