WATCH: South African Musician featured in the new Disney film Moana

South African singer and songwriter Lira, also known as Lerato Molapo, has recorded her own version of How Far I’ll Go for the latest Disney animation, Moana.

Lira’s song is the first song to play during the credits in the Movie. It’s also available for download on SA iTunes.

Lira said she was honoured to be involved

“How Far I’ll Go beautifully encapsulates the elements of Moana that resonate with me: to break away from conformity, to be bold, go out and discover what makes you uniquely you.”

“We are delighted that Lira has lent her world-class talent and distinctively beautiful voice to How Far I’ll Go,” said Christine Service, country manager of The Walt Disney Company Africa.

“Bringing her voice to the cinematic release of Moana adds a wonderful local dimension to this universal story of finding one’s true self. We are thrilled to be able to collaborate with Lira to bring this unique recording to South African families.”
