Popular Malaysian singer Elizabeth Tan has landed herself a job with the Disney Channel’s animated series, “Elena Of Avalor”.
Although she won’t be voicing any of the cartoon’s character, the “TABAH” singer is going to sing the Malay version of the series’ theme song, titled “My Time” aka “Kini Masaku”.
In the media preview of the animated series, which was held at The Bee in Publika on Thursday (27th October), the 23-year-old singer said, “It’s most people’s dream to work with Disney. I almost couldn’t believe it when the offer fell into my lap!”
Tan also told the press that she was initially nervous to take on the project when her manager informed her that she had been shortlisted to sing “Kini Masaku”, a song about self-belief and empowerment.
“I took it up as a challenge and I was fortunate to be working with an amazing sound engineer who aided and guided me through the process, including the emotions that I had to have when performing the tune. I sang the song in my own style, and I hope the audience will enjoy it,” she added.

Created by Craig Gerber, “Elena Of Avalor” is highly-anticipated in the US, as she is introduced as Disney’s first Latina princess.
The series is slated to premiere on the Disney Channel (Astro channel 615) at 11am on 13th November.
