MANILA, Philippines – Walt Disney Studios Southeast Asia has chosen top Filipino recording star and award-winning singer Moira dela Torre to sing her own version of the now-iconic “Reflection” as part of the Philippine promotions for the live action remake of Mulan.
“Actually, at first, to be honest, I was terrified, but if there’s one thing that I learned from Mulan, Lea Salonga, and Christina Aguilera, it’s really being true to myself. They made it to that stage because they were true to themselves and I feel very empowered by that,” Moira told reporters in a March 3 event, where she was announced as Disney’s choice for the Philippines.
The first animated Mulan was released in 1998. Filipino theater star Lea Salonga provided Mulan’s singing voice in the movie while pop icon Christina Aguilera released her own version for the song’s soundtrack.
Disney typically taps local singers to perform their versions of songs from a movie’s soundtrack.
