Moira dela Torre sings Mulan Theme Song and fans questioned why it’s not Lea Salonga
Mulan Theme Song – Fans questioned why the privilege to sing the theme song of the live-action movie Mulan was given to Moira dela Torre and not to Lea Salonga.
Disney recently announced that for the local release of the said movie, Moira will be the voice behind it. However, many fans expressed dismay on social media that Lea will not be the one singing the song Reflection.
It is known to many that the Broadway star was the original singing voice of Mulan in its animated version. Lea has earned the tag “Disney Princess” because she was also the singing voice of Princess Jasmine in the animated film Aladdin.
On Wednesday, the hashtag “#LeaSalonga” became a trending topic on Twitter. Several Disney fans pleaded, cried out, and somehow hoped that Lea will sing Reflection instead of Moira.
Some pointed out the fact that Lea did a remarkable performance with the song should be the basis that this privilege will still be given to her. Here are some comments from netizens.
Behind this united thought from several Disney fans, Lea Salonga shared a piece of her mind to the fact that Moira dela Torre was hand-picked to sing the Mulan Theme Song.
Based on the Twitter post of ABS-CBN entertainment reporter MJ Felipe, here is the statement of Lea: “I’m very happy and thrilled that Moira, the voice of this new generation of artists, has been handpicked to perform the song REFLECTION for the Philippine market.”
