LISTEN: "Our Song Lives On" performed by composer Alan Menken

UPDATE: "Our Song Lives On" is now titled "How Does a Moment Last Forever"

Composer Alan Menken treated the audience of his one-man show to the first public performance of the new Beauty and the Beast song "Our Song Lives On" back in September. A few videos of the performance surfaced online after the event, but now fans can hear the song in its entirety below.

According to Menken, the song appears multiple times in the film with Belle and Maurice.
“It ends up being a song called ‘Our Song Lives On,’ and it’s done in a number of forms,” says Menken of the former track. “The first time it’s sung, it’s Belle’s father singing as he’s completing a music box, and basically it’s [about], ‘How does a moment live forever? How do you hang on to precious moments?’ Then, it’s reprised by Belle, and then it’s the song that’s actually over the end credits at the end of the movie. Disney hasn’t announced it yet, but there’s going to be some wonderful singer on the end credits song."
