On “Good Morning America” Tuesday, Robin Roberts teased the upcoming special “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?”, which takes viewers behind the scenes of the highly anticipated remake and features an exclusive interview with Beyoncé.

“This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa and I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it,” the singer says. “I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”

“We’ve kind of created our own genre and I feel like the soundtrack is the first soundtrack where it becomes visual in your mind,” she explains. “The soundscape is more than just the music because each song tells the story of the film.”

The “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” special, airing Tuesday night, will also premiere the music video for “Spirit”, Beyoncé’s new song from the film.
