Even KZ Tandingan herself is in awe that she was the one picked to sing the first-ever Filipino language song "Gabay" that will be used in Disney's animated film feature "Raya and the Dragon."
During her "Magandang Buhay" guesting on Thursday, the Asia's Soul Supreme was opened up about how singing for a Disney film is actually a dream come true for her, since she grew up watching Disney movies.
"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 pwede akong maging princess ganito or prince charming ganito," she shared.
That's why she was surprised that the opportunity actually came her way.
"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," she shared.
KZ then revealed that the whole coordination for the track happened last year during the pandemic.
"Last year nangyari 'yung coordination and everything. 'Yun nga 'di ako makapaniwala, hindi ako 'yung usual type of artist na i-expect mo na kakanta," she added.
The "X-Factor" winner also asked everyone for their support in this historic milestone for Filipinos.
"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," she enthused.
"Gabay" is now available for streaming on Spotify. You can listen to the full track here:
