Reception[change | change source]

“When you believe” was generally positively reviewed. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. After DreamWorks Animation made Joseph: King of Dreams there were critics who said that the second movie had more spirituality than the first because the song Joseph sings in prison You Know Better than I was seen as more religious than the song “When you believe” from The Prince of Egypt.
