We’re only a few hours away from the premiere of A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits, which means we have to take a listen to the full soundtrack!
“In my experience of making movies, I’ve been really lucky that the movies I’ve been part of have had a big music part,” star Sofia Carson told us. “I tend to become closer to the character in the process of being in the recording studio and the dance studio when music is involved. I loved recording songs with Tessa.”
Sofia also chatted about the one track that means the most — “Why Don’t I?”
“I love ‘Why Don’t I?’ which is the anthem of the movie. You hear it quite a few times throughout the movie, and the first time you do, my character is in disguise for her first rehearsal in Cinderella.”
She adds, “She sings this song and even though she’s on stage and in front of a lot of people, it’s an intimate moment where she’s asking herself ‘why don’t I?’ and it’s the first time that she believes she can really do this and make her dreams come true. It’s an empowering song and it actually gave me chills when I heard it for the first time before I recorded it. The lyrics are so beautiful.”
A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits premieres TONIGHT, Sunday, November 27th @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.
