Last week, Disney released the full MV of Sarah Geronimo’s version of the song The Glow. There were other nominees coming from Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand but the Philippine’s Pop Star Princess and 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards’ Best Southeast Asia Act was the one chosen.
There were positive but also negative comments from netizens. Others commented that they prefer a Franchesca Farr or Rachelle Ann Go (who portrayed Gigi Vahn Tranh in Miss Saigon) version of the song.
For me, Nikki Gil’s voice also befits the song since Sarah’s voice is more powerful and more fitting with pop songs. But as long as it’s done by a good Pinoy singer, then, I’m good and proud of it. 🙂
Here’s the music video:
The Glow was originally sang by English singer Shannon Saunders during Rapunzel’s introduction as one of the newest addition to the line-up of Disney Princesses last 2011.
