The multi-award-winning titular song of 'Beauty and the Beast' has been announced to be sung by vocal powerhouses Ariana Grande and John Legend for the film's soundtrack. We can expect to hear their version of the song over the credits. The soundtrack version of this enchanting ballad was originally sung by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson in the original animated feature.

The new rendition of the classic song is produced by Grammy-winning veteran Ron Fair. It will also come with a music video directed by Dave Meyers, who has won a Grammy and 11 MTV Video Music Awards.

The song's composer, Alan Menken, also provides the film score, with new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Ashman. Also featured are three new songs written by Menken and veteran lyricist and three time Oscar winner Tim Rice.

Are you excited to hear this new version? It will probably be released before the film opens. Are you waiting for it? Be our guest.

'Beauty and the Beast' opens in theatres 16 March 2017.
