ASAP host and MYX VJ Nikki Gil did the country proud when she was chosen to sing the Filipino version of It�s A Small World at the launch of the classic boat ride at Hong Kong Disneyland. Other pop stars from Asia were also on hand to perform the song in Cantonese, Mandarin, and Korean.
Nikki felt privileged to be chosen to represent the country in a positive way. �For me, to have been able record it (the song) in Filipino is a different feeling. Ang sarap ng feeling. This has given me an opportunity to represent the country in a good way and I�m very proud that we--the Philippines--are represented in this global concept,� explained the singer. A bahay kubo has been included in the design of the It�s A Small World attraction as a representation of the country.
Nikki�s appearance at Hong Kong Disneyland is her second stint with the Walt Disney Company. She previously recorded two songs in the Asian version of the High School Musical soundtrack.
