Celine Dion will perform an original song for the upcoming live-action remake of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast."

The song, titled "How Does A Moment Last Forever," is written by Alan Menken, the Oscar-winning composer who wrote all the songs from the original "Beauty and the Beast" with the late Howard Ashman. The song will be featured in the end credits of the film. Dion was also featured in the end credits of the original film, as she performed a duet of the movie's famous ballad with Peabo Bryson. Dion and Bryson's version won an Academy Award, Golden Globe, and three Grammys.

"Being a part of the original 'Beauty and the Beast' was such a magical experience in my life," said Dion. "and I'm truly honored to be a part of this film again."

She and her late husband custom-designed the property themselves after buying two lots and razing one of the existing homes.

There are three pools on the property and gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The main house has over 10,000 square feet of space.

There are two kitchens in the main home. This one connects to a nearby eating nook.

And here's the so-called butler's kitchen with plenty of storage space.

There are lots of plush seating areas throughout the home.

The bottom floor has floor-to-ceiling windows to let in lots of natural light.

The dining room alone can easily fit a party of eight.

But the most spectacular room is the master bedroom.

It has its own private balcony and views of the Atlantic. There's even a flat-screen TV in the ceiling so that the view remains unobstructed.

Nearby is the master bathroom, which has a glass shower and an opulent bathtub.

But the best part of the master suite is the custom-designed closet. It has a rotating clothing rack and shoe carousel.

The guest bedrooms aren't too shabby, either.

Outside, there are lots of places to lounge, like near a cozy fire out on this veranda.

Or you can relax in the shade of the pool house after your dip in the pool.

The main pool even has a fire pit that juts into the water so bathers can easily jump out and sunbathe.

Or you could always enjoy the view from the deck.

The view really is spectacular.
