Pop Divas Unite For A Power Duet
When dreaming up the soundtrack for The Prince Of
Egypt, DreamWorks execs made a wish list of artists to sing the big song, When You
Believe. Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston each got a special screening of the
film-in-progress and agreed to be involved, says Michael Austin of DreamWorks Records.
"Getting permission was complicated," he says, because the divas record for
other labels. But the mission was accomplished, the recording session took place Aug. 7 in
New York, and the soundtrack's due in November.
Who'll get star billing? Austin says half the albums will have Houston's name ahead of
Carey's; half will bill Carey first.
