Seal shared a sweet tribute to late director Joel Schumacher, whom he credited with helping boost his career to the next level when the filmmaker included "Kiss From a Rose" on the Batman Forever soundtrack. Schumacher died Monday after a year-long battle with cancer at the age of 80.

Seal shared his remembrance on Instagram, opening the video with a short acoustic rendition of his signature song. He went on to explain that "Kiss From a Rose" was originally released in 1994, the fourth and final single from his second album, Seal II, and it was a fast flop, bottoming out of the charts in a couple of weeks.

But as Seal was turning his attention to his next LP, Schumacher reached out to see if he had any music that might fit a love scene in Batman Forever between Val Kilmer's Bruce Wayne and Nicole Kidman’s Dr. Chase Meridian. While Seal said he didn’t, his manager, Bob Cavallo, took it upon himself to send Schumacher a copy of Seal II, and placed an asterisk next to "Kiss From a Rose."
