Moira Chosen to Sing PH Version of MULAN Song "Reflection"

“Reflection” has been the song that ultimately defines Disney’s “Mulan.” Written and produced by Matthew Wilder and David Zippel, "Reflection" holds a special place in the hearts of many since its initial release two decades ago. It comes as no surprise that the live-action version of "Mulan" still heavily hinges on "Reflection" and Disney Philippines made sure that the local version of the song will be sung by one of the biggest names in the local music industry today with Moira de la Torre.
To officially launch their collaboration with Moira, Disney Philippines held a listening party event last March 3, 2020 where attendees during the listening party were among the first to hear Moira’s rendition of “Reflection” and were also given a special sneak peek into the upcoming music video. When asked how Moira felt when she discovered that Disney is tapping her to sing “Reflection” for fans in the Philippines, the songstress said, “I became very emotional, because ‘Reflection’ is very special to me. It’s the first-ever song I performed in public, and also the first full song that I learned on my own. It basically launched my love for music.” Moira also shared how the song perfectly reflects how her life has been. “It's funny how it speaks about self-doubt and questioning who you see on the mirror every day. That's basically me, but every time I feel that happening now, I feel braver. This song came back at a perfect time in my life, and I could only be happy and grateful." To her, being able to give justice to the iconic song would be a great honor, knowing how this can inspire and empower today’s generation of young Filipino girls.
Disney’s “Mulan” arrives in Philippine theaters on March 25, 2020 and is the epic tale of a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. The film stars Liu Yifei as Mulan, Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li. Join the conversations online at #MulanPH.
