In 2016 former WWE wrestler and current A-lister Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed to the world another one of his talents. Appearing in Moana as the devious demigod Maui Johnson took the audience by storm with his singing voice, performing one of the movie’s most catchy and popular songs “You’re Welcome”.
The tune has just reached quadruple platinum status and the actor knows exactly who to credit for this achievement. No, he is not talking about the song’s writer Lin Manuel Miranda. According to Johnson the credit belongs to his 2-years-old daughter Tia.
On his Instagram account, Johnson thanked Miranda for writing the song, but said the real reason for the song’s success is his “2 year old boss, Baby Tia”.
In the past, Johnson posted videos of himself singing the song for Tia several times, and every time, the toddler sings along with him completing his sentences and wants to go another time. When asked by Johnson, “is daddy Maui”, she responds with a definite “no”. Till now, according to Johnson, he sang the piece to his daughter more than 900 times—and she still does not believe it is him.
