Take a peek with us…..
Good morning friends. And what a way to start my morning with some fun Moana news in my Inbox. As you know, I am a BIG fan of Hamilton composer, Lin Manuel-Miranda and have been
stalking following his working on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana for the past 6 months now. Well friends, today, I got my hands on a little clip from one of the songs from the movie. Take a listen, I LOVE it already!
So cute, right??? I want to see more!
In the film, “You’re Welcome” is sung by Maui, Dwayne Johnson. But the credits will have another version with Hollywood Records artist Jordan Fisher teaming up with Miranda.You may remember Fisher from his breakout performance in the Emmy® Award-winning production of Grease: Live.
