Inigo Pascual sings local version of Coco’s theme song
Young actor and chart-topping recording artist Inigo Pascual will sing and appear in the music video of “Remember Me,” the lead song from Disney-Pixar’s new animated feature “Coco.”
Pascual’s cover version will be launched on November 17 in VEVO and will premiere on Channel V on November 18.
Pascual will perform the song live for the first time at the Venice Piazza Grand Canal Mall on November 15 at 4 pm.
“I am honored to sing this song because it is about family and remembering the people we love,” Pascual said in a press release by Disney-Pixar on Tuesday. “It reminds us to appreciate the love and sacrifice that our families had to make in order for us to arrive where we are.”
“Remember Me” was composed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the Oscar®-winning team behind Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 2013 feature “Frozen.” In the film, “Remember Me” is the signature song for beloved performer Ernesto de la Cruz, and is heard multiple times throughout the movie.
“The song is from the point of view of a person hoping to be remembered by a loved one,” said Anderson-Lopez. “But the lyric can be interpreted a few different ways depending on the tempo and tone of the music.”
Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” opens in Philippine cinemas on November 22.
