KZ Tandingan shared that she was totally shocked when she was offered to sing the track "Gabay" for Disney's animated movie Raya and the Last Dragon.
In an interview on Magandang Buhay, KZ shared that she was a big fan of Disney growing up. She is particularly fond of Mulan.
"Parang lahat naman yata tayo lumaki o tumanda na nanonood talaga ng Disney movies. Lalo na sa little girls at little boys. Parang lahat tayo nangangarap sana someday ay puwede akong maging princess ganito or prince charming ganito," she stated.
When she was informed about the project, KZ was surprised because it is rare that an artist with her voice is tapped to do a Disney song.
"They said they wanted me to do it. Noong una nga medyo 'totoo po ba? Baka nagkamali lang po ng send ng message.' Kasi hindi ba parang I don't sound like the singers who are often chosen. Last year nangyari 'yung coordination and everything," she said.
KZ added, "'Yun nga 'di ako makapaniwala, hindi ako 'yung usual type of artist na i-expect mo na kakanta."
KZ asked her fans to support the song once it comes out on March 5.
"Sana po suportahan niyo po kasi this is history. We are making history as Filipinos na mayroon na tayong sariling Disney song. Sana po ay suportahan nating lahat,"
