My Love Is Your Love
Pop divas unite for a power duet hide
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.
