Listen: P!nk covers ‘A Million Dreams’ for ‘The Greatest Showman’ tribute album

“The Greatest Showman” is by far one of the year’s biggest hits. Both the film and its accompanying soundtrack have broken several records and won several awards. All this and 2018 hasn’t even ended. Because of its surprise accomplishments, Atlantic Records announced in early October plans to reissue the film’s soundtrack with some of music’s biggest stars taking on the film’s tunes.

On Wednesday (Oct. 24), P!nk released her contribution to the tribute album. The “What About Us” crooner was given the soundtrack’s second track, “A Million Dreams.” Originally recorded by Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, and Ziv Zaifman, P!nk stays true to the film’s version of the song with piano, guitar, an orchestra, and a lot of heart and emotion.

In addition to P!nk’s cover of “A Millions Dreams,” the reprise of the song was also released. As previously reported, the “A Million Dreams (Reprise)” was performed by the singer’s seven-year-old daughter, Willow Sage Hart. Listen to the “A Million Dreams (Reprise)” here.

As if the two songs wasn’t enough to get your fix, a behind-the-scene video of the mother-daughter duo recording their songs was also released. In the video, P!nk is seen cheering on her daughter, mouthing the lyrics to the song, and thanking the guys behind the movie/soundtrack for making this film.

“I grew up listening to ‘Annie’ and no one has done this for me, for my heart since I was a little girl,” Pink says in the clip. “And to have her finally have something like this…you made our favorite movie ever.”

P!nk and Willow are joined by a diverse group of performers on the upcoming The Greatest Showman — Reimagined album. The record also features Panic! at the Disco, Kelly Clarkson, Kesha, Missy Elliot, Pentatonix, Sara Bareilles, and more.

Panic! at the Disco will give their own spin to the film’s opening track, “The Greatest Show,” while Kelly Clarkson will take on Jenny Lind’s tear-jerking track, “Never Enough.” The revamped soundtrack will also include a special version of the album’s breakout track, “This is Me,” performed by the film’s breakout star Keala Settle, Kesha, and Missy Elliott.

In addition to the ten tracks, the album will also feature four bonus songs. The bonus tracks will include a capella group Pentatonix’s take on “The Greatest Show,” Kesha’s “This is Me,” and an acoustic version of “Rewrite the Stars” by the film’s star Zendaya.

The Greatest Showman – Reimagined will arrive on Nov. 16 through Atlantic Records.

Pre-orders for the forthcoming release are currently available here.

The reimagined version of the album was produced by the soundtrack’s songwriters Grammy, Tony, and Academy Award-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
