Walt Disney Studios Southeast Asia has chosen top Filipino recording star and award-winning West End actress Rachelle Ann Go to sing and star in the music video of the beloved Disney song “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” in conjunction with the launch of the new live-action film, Cinderella.
In the 1950 animated film, Cinderella sang “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” as she encouraged her animal friends to never stop dreaming. This theme of “never stop dreaming” continues throughout the entire classic fairy-tale. The ballad was written and composed by Mack David, Al Hoffman and Jerry Livingston.
“We were looking for someone special, not just to sing the song beautifully but to also deliver the message reliably and inspire audiences. We chose Rachelle Ann Go as she embodies the positivity and inspirations of Cinderella, and is a living idol for young Filipinos everywhere who never stopped following her dreams,” said Amit Malhotra, general manager of Walt Disney Studios, Southeast Asia.
In the video, Disney also produced a touching segment—a memorable moment where Rachelle was surprised by a visit from her mother who flew all the way from Manila to surprise her during the studio recording.
The music video premiered on Disney Channel and Disney Channel Asia YouTube Channel on March 7.
Cinderella opens in cinemas nationwide on March 12 and will also be available in IMAX. The movie will feature the much anticipated short Frozen Fever and popular princesses Elsa and Anna at the start of the movie.
