Before finding fame as an international pop sensation, Christina Aguilera was one of the stars of The Mickey Mouse Club, and went on to record a song for one of Disney’s animated classics – Mulan. She decided to go back to her roots two decades later, by recording another track for its live remake.
Aguilera explained her decision to team up with Disney again by saying she wanted to be a part of an incredible project “that’s full of power and meaning” and sends an important message to everyone who sees it.
“The film Mulan and the song ‘Reflection’ coincided with getting me my first record deal,” Aguilera said in a statement. My new song, ‘Loyal Brave True,’ represents the fine balance between vulnerability and strength,” explained the singer in a statement.
Mulan is expected to hit the theaters on March 27th, and “Loyal Brave True” will be featured on its soundtrack with an updated version of “Reflection”. The film itself won’t feature any songs from the animated classic, just their instrumentals, because the director Niki Caro didn’t feel they fit his realistic vision for this project.
