The Moana starlet actually visited the show last year, before Moana had hit theaters and she was really an unknown actor.
“Moana has connected with so many individuals through its characters and message, and the music is no different,” she shared about the movie and music.
“The song comes from a place of ‘what if.’ We all have that drive, that quiet voice inside telling you to go for it. It’s a universal message that everyone can relate to.”
