Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson sang one song for Disney's Moana in 2016. The Great One's voice is heard on 'You're Welcome,' the seventh track on the Moana soundtrack.
The Rock did the voice-over for Maui's character in the blockbuster film, which drew $645 million at the box office.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is one of the highest-paid actors globally and has featured in several Hollywood blockbusters.
He spoke with Female First about his role in Moana and discussed why he wanted to be a part of the Disney movie:
"The biggest reason I wanted to be a part of the movie was because it was an opportunity to showcase a culture that was very important to me. ‘Aloha Spirit’ is something that is very special; it’s very meaningful to us and our Polynesian culture. It’s intangible. When you get off the plane and your feet touch the ground there; energetically, it takes you to a different place. That’s ‘Aloha Spirit’. The opportunity that we had, as Polynesians, to bring to life a story of our Polynesian culture in this capacity with our great partners at Disney – and musically with the masters on this project – was a really special opportunity for us. This is a history-making movie and I am not saying that because I am a little biased. This truly showcases the Pacific Islands for the very first time on screen this way." The Rock said.

The Great One took to Instagram in 2020 to declare that his daughter Tia didn't believe that the Maui character was her dad. He posted the cute video to his millions of followers where he tried to convince her that it was him.
