Moana’s ‘You’re Welcome’ – Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jordan Fisher

Hey hey! If you haven’t seen ‘Moana’ yet, get on it pronto because it is amazing. The movie is about a young girl Moana who has to rescue her island from devastation by finding the demigod Maui. It is also about her finding her path to self-discovery and who she is.

In the movie, Maui (played by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) sings a song called ‘You’re Welcome’ which is basically about how he should be thanked for everything he has done for humankind. Jordan Fisher and Lin-Manuel Miranda also sang a version of this song which features on the ‘Moana’ soundtrack.

Well, recently, the music video for their version was released online and shows Jordan Fisher in New York and Lin-Manuel Miranda in London and then they go meet up in the studio to record the song.

Have a look at it here:

Anyone else wonders how Jordan Fisher can hit those high notes?

Jordan Fisher’s New EP

You’ve probably seen him and heard his vocal talents in Liv & Maddie and Teen Beach Movie on Disney Channel or most recently on Grease: Live!, but Jordan Fisher has now released his debut self-titled E.P.¬†The E.P. was released August 19, 2016 and has four songs on it.

This multi-talented artist and Radio Disney’s newest Next Big Thing (N.B.T) first released “All About Us” a few months back and has been on a whirlwind radio tour promoting his E.P. The music video for this has already reached 3.5 million views and the song is climbing the charts. Other songs on the E.P. are “Counterfeit”, “All I Wanna Do” and “Lookin’ Like That”.

All songs showcase his incredible vocal range and a falsetto that is not humanly possible. Songs on the E.P have a mixture of R&B, pop and some hip-hop. These songs make you want to dance and his voice has this cool swagger that hugs the lyrics which gives them purpose and meaning.

This E.P is an amazing introduction for Jordan Fisher and we can’t wait for the album!Jordan Fisher’s E.P. is available for download on iTunes and Google Play and able to be streamed on Spotify.
