Maisy Kay Releases "Beauty and the Beast" cover video duet with CJ Emmons

Singers Pay Tribute To A Tale As Old As Time

Eclectic pop singer Maisy Kay has released a new video to celebrate Disney’s new live-­action Beauty and the Beast film, starring Emma Watson, in theaters today (March 17th). Maisy is joined by Grammy-­nominee and Dancing with the Stars vocalist CJ Emmons for an impassioned, heart-­felt duet of the title song from the original Disney classic.

For Maisy, who fondly remembers dressing up in Disney princess gowns and singing to her dogs, the cover video was a chance to pay tribute to some of the music that was formative to her desire to pursue a career as a musician.

“Ever since I was a little girl, beauty and the beast has held a special spot in my heart. One of the first songs I remember falling in love with was Céline’s take on the song in the end credits. Since that moment, I’ve always wanted to sing my own version of that song and try and do it justice. I am so glad that we finally all got together to make this happen. I got to work with a bunch of talented people throughout this experience, so a big thank you to CJ Emmons, and everyone who made this possible.”

­ Maisy Kay The “Beauty and the Beast” cover follows up Maisy’s recent release of original music, with the haunting “Enough” having recently premiered on Paste Magazine. Maisy is currently writing and recording new music, and preparing for the release of her next original single, “Out Of My Mind” in the weeks ahead.
