Netizens react to Moira Dela Torre singing ‘Mulan’ theme song

Moira can’t believe that she can now finally sing ‘Reflection’ and she considers this as one of the greatest opportunities ever made available for her.

Filipino singer,Moira dela Torre’s dream has finally come true as Disney tapped her to record the local version of live-action film Mulan’s theme song ‘Reflection.’

Upon receiving the good news, Moira can’t help but feel excited and nervous at the same time. ‘Reflection’ was the first song she ever learned in full.

Moira said: “It really felt like a full circle, because ‘Reflection’ is the first song I ever had to learn in full, because I had to sing it for a special number for our church’s second anniversary. It was basically what opened the door for me to start loving music.”

Moira can’t believe that she can now finally sing ‘Reflection’ and she considers this as one of the greatest opportunities ever made available for her.

She continued: “It’s very cool because this happened. It’s crazy. I wouldn’t have believed that I would get to work with Disney for something as big as this. If you asked me this last year, I still wouldn’t believe it, It’s such a great opportunity, and I’m very grateful for it.”

And to the people who are criticizing and comparing Moira to original International singers of Mulan’s theme song Lea Salonga and Christina Aguilera, here’s what Moira has to say:

“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 yourself. They made it to that stage because they were true to themselves and I feel very empowered by that.”

Moira also revealed that the lyrics of the song really resonate with her, and for that, Disney allowed the Filipino singer to include a personal touch on her version.

She said: “I was actually expecting it to have a lot of rules, but when I got into the studio, they just said, ‘We just want Moira.’

“Why must we all conceal, how we think, how we feel’ We’re so careful now! This millennial generation makes us walk on eggshells. It’s so hard to be true to yourself, and that’s really something we should fight for.”

The live-action Mulan will be available in Philippine cinemas starting on March 25, 2020.

Meanwhile, Moira’s newest project earned mixed reactions from netizens. Some are really proud of her achievement:

Other netizens hope Moira’s version of “Reflection” would not give a sad vibe to it and suggested Disney could have chosen either Sarah Geronimo, Jona Viray, or Julie Anne San Jose.
