One hundred years of celebrating Disney magic is arriving very soon in Philippine shores through the movie “Wish.” To celebrate the film’s upcoming release next Wednesday, November 22, in cinemas, Filipino Disney fans can sing along to “Aking Hiling,” a special rendition of the film’s main song (“This Wish”), performed by this generation’s pop princess, Zephanie.
“I believe that great things truly come at the right time and season of our lives,” Zephanie quips. “I just can’t put into words how happy and grateful I am to be given the opportunity to sing “Aking Hiling” and be a part of Disney’s 100th anniversary celebration here in the Philippines.” Zephanie adds, “Nakaka-relate talaga ako sa ”Aking Hiling” as a dreamer who grew up watching Disney movies and shows. To believe in the power of one’s wish is such a strong message that the song puts across, so I hope this will inspire us further to go after our hearts’ wishes.”
