My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 21, 1998 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was written for the movie Titanic. James Horner came up with the music for the song and scored the film. When Jennings writes song for movies, he often looks at a script or sees a rough cut of the film. This wasn't the case with this song, as he drew inspiration from Horner's narrative. The song first appeared on the Titanic soundtrack, released November 7, 1997, which sold at least 15 million copies worldwide even though the rest of the album is comprised of James Horner's instrumental pieces written for the film. This was a huge boon for Sony Records, which released the soundtrack; when they made the deal, they paid $800,000 for the rights, as it was long before the song was written. Worldwide, this was the biggest selling single of 1998. In the UK it sold 1,312,551 copies, making Celine Dion the only woman with two million-selling singles in the UK. (The other was 1994's "Think Twice.") This won the 1998 Grammy Awards for Record Of The Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Song Of The Year and Best Song for a Motion Picture.
