Darren Espanto and Morissette are the new voices behind the iconic Aladdin theme song "A Whole New World" and we wonder what Lea Salonga, who lent her singing voice to Princess Jasmine in the 1992 Disney animated film, has to say about it.
According to the two powerhouse vocalists, they haven't been able to reach out to The Voice Philippines coach since their version was released but they hope she'll like it. "Coach Lea, we hope you're proud," Morissette said.
"We hope we did that beautiful songs of yours a lot of justice and sana magustuhan 'to ng mga Disney fans around the world."
Morissette also shared her challenge in doing the song. "It's hard for the female part not to do it like in that Lea Salonga placement... I need to be like Ms. Lea na parang theatrical. At the same time, I didn't want to sound like her."
