Alessia Cara can add soundtrack singer to her resume. The 20-year-old "Here" singer provided the vocals for a Lin-Manuel Miranda-penned track from Disney's upcoming movie Moana titled "How Far I'll Go," which Disney released Thursday (Oct. 27).

A bouncy, uplifting tune follows Moana's plot of a young girl who sets out on a journey to a fabled island to save her people ("If the wind on my sail on the sea stays behind me/ One day I'll know, if I go, there's just no telling how far I'll go"). The song can be heard in the film twice, with Auli'i Cravalho -- the voice of protagonist Moana -- singing the track during the film, and Cara's version playing during the credits.

Moana will feature another song written by Miranda, "You're Welcome," which is sung by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The film hits theaters Nov. 23, but its soundtrack will be available Nov. 18.
