The singer also said that Her first casting was held on March 6, 2020 at Disney Studios in Los Angeles And after a while when they told her that they were going to contact her to ask her some questions, the first thing she thought was that they would consult her about her career, but it was the opposite. “They say, ‘Hi, how are you? Hey, tell us about your childhood ‘”.

“I began to tell them that I grew up with my mom and dad flying a small plane around the Colombian jungle surrounded by a thousand animals, and these fascinated gentlemen would tell me: ‘How is it possible?’ Then they asked me about my brother, I told them what happened to him, until suddenly the casting ends. I said to myself: ‘Now they are going to ask me about me, for my professional part’, and no, they tell me: ‘Sing us’, and well, I sang and the audition was over. The next thing was: ‘Ya, you stayed ”he told Mundo Hispánico.
