If you’re anything like me, you’ve been getting down to singer-songwriter Pink’s music for years. The 39-year-old pop star is a powerhouse. And then there’s “The Greatest Showman,” the 2017 film about P.T. Barnum and the start of the Barnum & Bailey Circus, which starred Hugh Jackman and featured a soundtrack that viewers everywhere have raved about. One of its songs was even nominated for an Oscar.
For those who are fans of both Pink and the film, prepare yourselves. You’re about to see something amazing.
In a move reminiscent of Lin-Manuel Miranda and his “Hamilton Mixtape,” the folks at Atlantic Records are recording “The Greatest Showman — Reimagined,” a companion album to the film that will feature new versions of the songs that appeared on the original soundtrack, performed by various artists. While the album is already available for pre-order, it doesn’t officially drop until Nov. 16.
Watching this music video made my heart melt, and I think you’ll feel the same. It begins with some adorable banter between Pink and her daughter:
“I think you’re fun,” says Pink.
“Why?” asks Willow, in a move familiar to all parents of young children.
“‘Cause you’re fun,” says Pink. “I’m glad I had you.”
Then Willow begins to sing, gazing into her mother’s eyes as her mother mouths the words back at her. Later in the video, we see Pink belting it out, too. And at the end, they sing the last six words in unison. And it is the cutest thing ever. This will be such a lovely memory for the two to have for the rest of their lives.
Pink shared a personal video of the moment to Twitter, writing: “Willow & I recently had the awesome opportunity to sing together one of our all-time favorite songs #AMillionDreams. Check out the new album “The Greatest Showman: Reimagined!” She then shared a link to a full video of the sweet recording session.

What is perhaps more impressive about the recording is that Willow is no stranger to performing, having already appeared in several music videos — including “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken” and “Just Like Fire” — with her famous mom. (Check out the Twitter photo below from @PinkSpain of Willow in action.) Could pop stardom also be in her future?

Maybe. Maybe not. But either way, we’re going to love this duo forever.
