Moira dela Torre, one of the freshest voices in the local music scene, was chosen to sing the official theme song of Star Cinema's upcoming movie, Love You to The Stars and Back.
Her rendition of Moonstar 88-hit "Torete" sums up the love story of Caloy and Mika, played by Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto in the film directed by Antoinette Jadaone.
Here's an official lyric video:
Love You to The Stars and Back opens August 30 in cinemas nationwide.
On social media, Moira expressed how she is grateful of the project as she shared an experience singing the song as her first Tagalog cover seven years ago.
"My very first tagalog cover on youtube in 2010 was this song and i was bullied for it for how i pronounced "Torete" so i took it down so embarrassed," she said.
"Little did i know, i would be singing it 7 years later as an official soundtrack for my very first project with (Star Cinema). Lord, You are funny & faithful. Thank You," she added.
The OPM band even commended the female singer on Twitter.
Husay! Ganda! Moira Dela Torete! Good job. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽#LoveYouToTheStarsAndBack— moonstar88band (@moonstar88band) August 12, 2017
A music video will of Moira's rendition of "Torete" will soon be released by the ABS-CBN film outfit.
This, however, was not the first time she recorded a song for a movie. Last year, Moira sang "Malaya" for the film Camp Sawi.
