The true stars of Beauty and the Beast are the actors. Engaging and funny, these romantic leads created the soundtrack for live-action Disney films for eight years, making Belle one of the most famous fictional characters in history.
They gave audiences an emotional and fantastical mix of lessons in love, kindness and imagination. All the while being perfectly recognisable as real women. When singing their signature songs Belle and Rumpelstiltskin, Cogsworth and Mrs Potts, Lumiere and the enchanted candelabra and Javert and his trusty horse, they kept you invested in their characters and their story.
And now, an album is coming from the same creative team behind the soundtrack and brings them together once more for our second series of brilliant singing competitions with The World.
Plus you have Dolly Parton, Michael Buble, Antonio Banderas, Idina Menzel, Brenda Lee, Bastille, Jason Derulo, Mark Ronson, Pixie Lott, Enrique Iglesias, Toni Braxton, P!nk, Jason Mraz, Nick Jonas, Lily Allen, James Arthur, Ben Caplan, Kate Nash, Mary J Blige, Ana Matronic, James Morrison, Michelle Branch, Ellie Goulding, and my own own voice all smashing out their versions of Beauty and the Beast hits.
