Music Monday: First Listen of Moana's "You're Welcome"
I am a big fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights and Hamilton). So when I heard that he Miranda was writing some of the songs for the Disney's, Moana, I was super excited. It totally makes sense that he could write a song for the Moana character, Maui, who is voiced by Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock). This morning, Disney released a snippet in this video clip. The song is titled "You're Welcome."
Visit this post to view how Miranda even began to write a specific character song for someone like The Rock.
The Moana soundtrack is set to be released on November 18th. It's available for pre-order on Amazon. Other music written for Moana were composed by Opetaia Foa'i and Mark Mancina (Lion King, Brother Bear, Tarzan). Moana will be released in movie theaters on November 23rd.
