Jordin Sparks Re-Records ‘Beauty and The Beast’ Theme for Film’s Blue-Ray Release

    Imagine my surprise when I saw, in this week’s Entertainment Weekly magazine, a “First Look” at Jordin Sparks in the new music video for her version of the Disney Classic “Beauty and The Beast.” Sparks’ version was recorded to mark the Blue-Ray release of the animated film on October 5th. Beauty and The Beast has always been one of my favorite Disney cartoon movies (if not THE favorite). The song, recorded by Céline Dion and Peabo Bryson played during the 1991 film’s end credits and was released as a single where it peaked at #9 on both the Billboard Hot 100 Chart as well as the UK Singles Chart (in 1992). Sparks’ version will be accompanied by a video (pictured above) that was directed by Philip Andelman. According to Sparks in the EW article, ‘We didn’t change the song too much, but it is poppier,” she says. ”I wanted it to be different, so people aren’t like, ‘Oh, she’s trying to be Celine.”’

      I love Jordin Sparks singing so I am looking forward to the remake and I know Jordin will well do the song justice! Jordin's voice is so pure sounding. Love this young lady!!

    • My only issue is that the song isn't being recorded as a duet…at least I don't think it is. The original is such a classic. I'm sure Jordin will hold her own. Thanks for the comment!
