The theme song for Mulan was titled “Reflection.” The song features one note, a high F that is difficult for most vocalists to reach accurately. The movie version of the song is sung by the actress that plays the female lead Fa Mulan.

When Aguilera heard about the song she knew that this could be her chance to break out into the music business. She recorded a Whitney Houston song that featured the same musical note. Disney was impressed with Aguilera’s vocal range and asked her to record the pop version of the song. Upon the release of “Reflection,” RCA records signed Christina Aquilera to a record deal.
