Disney Channel is celebrating Hispanic Heritage month with a Spanish-language version of the theme song for its top–rated Latina princess series, Elena of Avalor. A video featuring the song by Gaby Moreno premieres on Disney Channel Thursday (Sept. 15), the first day of Hispanic Heritage month. It will also be seen on Disney Junior and the channel’s apps.
Hear the song and watch the video now, exclusively on Billboard.com.
Bilingual singer Moreno performs the new version of the song, as well as the English-language, Latin-tinged pop tune that has been heard on the show since its July debut. Moreno’s latest album, Ilusion, was released on Sept. 9.
The animated show stars a guitar-playing 16-year-old Hispanic princess in a “Latin-inspired fairytale kingdom” where the characters speak English peppered with the occasional Spanish expression. The soundtrack features a medley of Pan-Latin sounds. The show ranked as the summer’s No. 1 TV series in the Kids 2-11 category and the No. 1 animated series across kid cable TV networks in total viewers (2.5 million) and women 18-49 (592,000/0.9 rating), according to network figures.
Disney has renewed Elena for a second season.
