Miliyah Kato will be providing the Japanese version of the Disney movie "Moana" end theme song "How Far I'll Go".
Kato's version of the song is officially titled "Dokomademo ~How Far I'll Go~". It will be released as the singer's 38th single on March 1.
"I've been doing music for about 12 years now, and I've never had a feeling like this. I was really happy because this was something that I really wanted to do. It was like being in a dream," Kato said.
Disney cited Kato's penchant for singing about the modern woman's experience, with messages and themes that resonate with the film's main character, as its reason for selecting the singer for the project.
A CD-only version and a CD DVD version of Kato's upcoming single will be released. The DVD will contain the single's music video.
"Moana" is Disney's latest animated film. It will be released in Japan on March 10.
