Céline Dion makes her triumphant return to the Beauty and the Beast franchise with "How Does a Moment Last Forever."

The ballad premiered on Friday, and its theme about everlasting love sounds deeply personal to Dion, who lost her husband Rene Angelil last year

"How does a moment last forever? How can a story never die?" she sings over the gorgeous instrumental. "It is love we must hold onto, never easy, but we try."

Of course, the GRAMMY winner already has experience making music magic with Disney. In 1991, Dion teamed with Peabo Bryson for the platinum-selling lead single from the Beauty and Beast animated classic.

Ariana Grande and John Legend perform a beautiful remake of the ballad for the upcoming live-action version of Beauty an the Beast, but the original version remains a fan favorite, garnering millions of views online.

ET caught up with Dion at the Los Angeles premiere of Beauty and the Beast last week, where she opened up about being hesitant to sign on for a new song.

"My first Beauty and the Beast, the decision was made with my husband,” explained the 48-year-old singer. “Now I'm making decisions on my own. It's a little bit harder. I couldn't say yes right away, because I felt like I was kind of cheating in a way."
