Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson – Beauty And The Beast

“Beauty and the Beast” is a song written by lyricist Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken for the Disney animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991). The film’s theme song. Actress and singer Paige O’Hara, who voices Belle, was among the first artists to express interest in recording the pop version of “Beauty and the Beast”, but Disney dismissed her for being “too Broadway”. Unable to afford to hire a “big singer” at the time, Disney settled for rising Canadian recording artist Celine Dion. Because she was relatively unknown to American audiences at the time, the studio doubted that Dion would have much of an impact in the United States on her own and subsequently hired the more well-known American singer Peabo Bryson to record the song alongside her as a duet.
