John Legend, on Wednesday, January 11th, confirmed the duet by replying to Grande‘s tweet with a picture of him in the recording booth.

The enchanting ballad, originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson featuring Alan Menken‘s beautiful melody and Howard Ashman‘s unforgettable lyrics, received an Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy Award, upon its release in 1991.
