"I’m very happy and thrilled that Moira, the voice of this new generation of artists, has been handpicked to perform the song REFLECTION for the Philippine market."
It was on Wednesday, March 11, when Disney Philippines announced that Moira's version of "Reflection" will be out very soon.
On Instagram, Moira described this project as a "full circle moment" for her.
"When I was a young girl, the first song I ever got to sing on my own in front of an audience was 'Reflection' from Disney’s Mulan. And now, almost 18 years later, I get to sing it in front of the world," Moira shared.
She added, "I can't even begin to describe how honored I feel to have been chosen to sing my own rendition of “Reflection”, not just because it’s one of the most beloved Disney songs, but because of how meaningful it has been in my life as an artist."
