Rachelle Ann Go Featured Disney's "Cinderella" Music Video!
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.
Disney is reviving the song with a new arrangement and music video to deliver the inspirational and positive message of the new “Cinderella” movie, which is to believe in your dreams, be positive and most importantly “Have Courage and Be Kind.”
Disney’s decision to cast Rachelle Ann Go in the music video - “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” is in line with the company’s approach to dream, create and celebrate the most magical stories and adventures, each woven around a relatable, empowered local idol who delights everyone and especially inspires girls to realize their full potential.
As a child, Rachelle always dreamt of becoming a singer and recording star, frequently joining national talent competitions from an early age. Her breakthrough came when she was declared the grand winner of the highly-coveted “Search for a Star” singing contest in 2003 in Manila. What followed was a sensational realization of Rachelle's dream – expressing herself through music, gaining fame and ardent fans, releasing top-selling albums, headlining sold-out concerts, and winning awards for her craft around the world.
Her dream of attaining international stardom also came true when she was cast last year for the West End revival of the musical “Miss Saigon” where she received Best Featured Actress and Best Supporting Actress accolades from London award-giving bodies.
Disney’s “Cinderella” opens in cinemas nationwide on Thursday, March 12th and will also be available in IMAX. Disney’s “Cinderella” will also feature the much anticipated short “Frozen Fever” and popular princesses Elsa and Anna at the start of the movie.
