London born singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Sonna Rele was chosen by Oscar nominated director Kenneth Branagh to perform the end-credit, original, theme song “Strong” in Disney’s highly-anticipated motion picture Cinderella. The song is part of Walt Disney Record’s Cinderella soundtrack, which is available at all retailers today. The Compound/Motown recording artist was brought to the famed director’s attention while performing at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
“I was performing at the Royal Albert Hall in London with NE-YO and they asked me if I’d be interested in recording the song for the film. I’m a huge fan of Kenneth’s and Disney so I was absolutely honored,” recalls Sonna. “The song is really about personal strength, belief in yourself and the importance of having courage and kindness in your heart,” explained Sonna. “It’s a beautiful song that embodies the core values of the movie and I feel very proud to be a part of it.”
