Imagine you’re 16 years old, and being asked to preform a song from your FIRST EVER MOVIE ROLE at the Oscars?!?!
That was exactly the situation Auli’i Cravalho was in last night. The 16-year-old from Hawaii sang the Oscar-nominated song “How Far I’ll Go” (with an intro from Lin-Mannuel Miranda, no less) and absolutely KILLED it. I’d have been a mess of nerves, but all you can see radiating from her face is pure joy.
I think it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing a lot more from this young lady.
