Janella Salvador’s Music Video of ‘Moana’ Song ‘How Far I’ll Go’ Premieres Nov 18

Walt Disney Studios Southeast Asia has chosen fast-rising, multi-talented star Janella Salvador to sing and appear in the music video of “How Far I’ll Go,” the lead song from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 56th animated feature “Moana.”


The music video of Janella Salvador’s cover version will be launched on Friday, November 18 simultaneously in Disney Channel and Disney Philippines’s social media accounts.

“How Far I’ll Go” is one of seven original songs from the “Moana” soundtrack and is written by the Tony Award-winning “Hamilton” composer Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The inspirational song boasts a soaring chorus and lyrics that echo the film’s plot of a young woman who leaves her South Pacific island to restore her people’s ancient role as master voyagers.

The Philippines localized music video aims to deliver the inspirational and positive message of “Moana”, which is to have courage, determination and compassion, while keeping a sense of adventure and a never-say-die attitude.

This local adaptation is in line with the studio’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.

Janella is one of five singers from Southeast Asia, namely Maudy Ayunda from Indonesia, AydaJebat from Malaysia, Myra Molloy from Thailand and MinhNhu from Vietnam, who were selected to cover the song in each of their local languages.

  1. paano magigng number 1 ang GMA kung hindi nga kayang mag-broadcast ng GMA outside mega-manila, kailangan pa ng GMA ang sebisyo ng Sky Cable at Destiny Cable na subsidiary ng ABS-CBN, at ng Cignal ng PLDT na owner din ng TV5, para mapanood ang mga shows ng GMA sa Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao tapos ang yabang pa ng GMA na sabihing number 1 sila…kahiya naman. Magtayo muna ng sariling cable company ang GMA para matapatan ang ABS-CBN. Ano kaya ang mangyari sa GMA kung tanggalin ng Sky, Destiny at Cignal sa kanilang bundle ang mga shows ng GMA, sigurado nganga
