There's nothing beastly about this beautiful cover.
On Sunday, ABC aired the second installment of its Disney Family Singalong, which saw another crop of famous faces reimagining several classic songs. Jennifer Hudson and John Legend performed a split-screen duet for the Mother's Day special, giving a stirring rendition of "Beauty and the Beast" from the iconic 1991 film of the same name.
The pair sang about the "tale as old as time, the song as old as rhyme" while social distancing at home. Hudson, 38, wore a shiny purple dress for the broadcast, as Legend, 41, sat at the piano, on which scenes from the movie played.
Sharing some behind-the-scenes looks on Instagram, Hudson posted clips of herself getting ready for the musical performance. In one clip, the Oscar-winner posed next to an elegant chandelier with a sparkly filter, writing in the caption, "Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing mothers out there !!!!!!"
Hudson's 10-year-old son David helped her finalize her glamorous look in another video, carefully tying a bow on her neckline before she recorded her Disney rendition.
"Thank u my baby for loving mama and for taking care of me the way u do !" she captioned the sweet post.
