Moira dela Torre ‘honored’ to be chosen to sing ‘Reflection’ for Disney’s ‘Mulan’

Moira dela Torre is "honored" to be chosen to sing her own rendition of "Reflection" for Disney's upcoming live action film "Mulan."

On Instagram on Wednesday, the singer expressed how excited she is about being able to finally live out her dreams of officially singing a theme song for Disney.

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This is the very definition of a full circle moment.😭 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. 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. The song talks about doubting yourself; about the weak knees that come when you don't feel capable of doing something great– something I find very relatable for a lot of us. Throughout this once-in-a-lifetime experience of lending my voice to “Reflection”, I have faced self-doubt and [so much] fear, thinking I wouldn’t be able to measure up. The thought of having to fill such big shoes was very scary to me until I realized that I was chosen so I could pave my own path. Loyal. Brave. True. These are 3 virtues that continue to guide me as I go through this journey. I strive to stay loyal to the fans who love this song and to my own fans who have loved me in every season. I strive to be brave, making sure that my fears know it can give me weak knees but will never have power over me. And lastly, I strive to remain true to who I am, my style, my voice and most importantly, my story. I hope my journey encourages you today-- that no dream is ever really forgotten, that God is faithful and that you are stronger and braver than you think ✨ I can’t wait for all of you to hear the song and to watch the music video, both of which will be coming out very, very soon. 💛 Catch Disney’s Mulan, in cinemas March 25. #MulanPH ♥️

It was on Tuesday when Disney revealed that it had tapped Moira to record "Reflection" for the local release of "Mulan".

The track was originally performed by Lea Salonga in the 1998 animated film "Mulan", while a studio version was recorded by Christina Aguilera in the same year.

In her post on Wednesday, Moira said: "Loyal. Brave. True. These are 3 virtues that continue to guide me as I go through this journey.

The live-action version of 'Mulan' will open in cinemas nationwide on March 25.
