Darren Espanto and Morissette have won over the hearts of many Filipinos with their dazzling revival of ‘A Whole New World.’ With the release of their version, the pair embarked on their own magic carpet ride to perform the song for their fans live during the opening week of Disney’s Aladdin in Philippine cinemas.
The first stop on their journey was on the Wish 107.5 Bus at SM by the Bay where there were huge crowds excitedly anticipating their visit. Darren and Morissette granted the wishes of their fans with their first public performance of the song and a fun question and answer portion.
On the second day, the two stars brought the magic to SM North EDSA, The Block Atrium, and once again amazed fans and media guests with their own take on the beloved classic.
Over the tour, the powerhouse pair was able to share their experiences during the project and some fun facts about growing up with the song.
“It truly is an honor to be chosen by Disney. The entire process was just so much fun. Working on this project, Darren and I really discovered new facets and placements for our voices,” shared Morissette.
Darren even reminisced of his performance of ‘A Whole New World’ when he was younger during one of his workshops. “When I first found out I was chosen, I was like, ‘Why me?’ I’m so grateful because this is a Disney kid’s dream come true,” he continued.
