Did you feel that?

Yes, that was indeed a shiver of excitement.

But, that wasn't just any shiver, that was a Celine Dion, Beauty and the Beast shiver.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, we can announce that the French-Canadian singing icon will perform a brand-new original song for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast.

On Thursday, Dion shared a post on her Facebook page informing her fans she will be performing a song called 'How Does A Moment Last Forever'.

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

According to Mashable, the song will be composed by Disney veteran musician Alan Menken and Oscar-winning Evita, The Lion King and Aladdin lyricist, Tim Rice.

Broadway World describes Dion's upcoming song as 'an emotional ballad about holding onto life's precious moments'.

And by precious moments we think they mean the fact Celine 'The Queen' Dion is singing a song for the hit Disney classic again.

The news comes days after the mother-of-three released a cover of Sia's single 'My Love' to pay homage to her late husband, René Angélil, who passed away in January 2016.

Apparently clips of Dion's latest Beauty and the Beast song will play throughout the film but Dion's full version plays in full over the ending credits. So, if you didn't want to sit in the cinema waiting for the end of the film, you will do now.

The new film – starring Emma Watson – isn't out until 17 March so, in the meantime, enjoy the melodic delights of Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson's 1991 hit single from the original Beauty and the Beast film.

We have so emotions right now, we think we need a lie down.
