H.E.R. is officially a Disney Princess and we love that for her!
The Vallejo & Bay Area native made her Disney debut last week playing Belle on the Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration and it was absolutely everything! Her beautiful voice was music to our ears and she even paid homage to her Filipino roots by displaying traditional Baybayin (Philippine script) painted onto her costume.
"I can’t even begin to describe how grateful and how proud I am of what we’ve done. This is the kind of happiness you hope and pray for in this journey. Thank you so much to every single person on set. Thank you to MY AMAAAAAZING CASTMATES," she said on Instagram. "You’ve pushed me, believed in me, and have shown me so much love. I am forever forever changed by you all."
The Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration is now streaming on Disney+!
