Aside from Emma Watson and the rest of the cast, fans can also hear diva Celine Dion in a new recording on the soundtrack of Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast."

The soundtrack for the film features the voices of Watson, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Dan Stevens, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, and others from the cast, as well as three new recordings to be played over the film's credits.

While audiences have heard other actors such as McGregor sing on films before, this is the movie debut of Watson's singing voice.

Watson sings the part of book-loving, Beast-reforming Belle.

Dion, meanwhile, reprises a song originally sung by Belle's character, "How Does A Moment Last Forever."

She originally lent her voice to the title track of the animated version, dueting with Peabo Bryson. Their version earned them a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Other songs on the soundtrack released in 1991 also won awards.

This year's live action film features Ariana Grande and John Legend in the title track.

Aside from Dion, Grande, and Legend, Josh Groban also appears on the film's soundtrack.
