KUALA LUMPUR: Singer Nabila Razali will sing the theme song to the upcoming biopic film of national badminton champ, Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
The alumni of Akademi Fantasia (AF) 2013 is set to perform the song, titled Cahaya Juara, as a duet with Sarawak-born YouTube sensation, Priscilla Abby.
In a news report by BH Online, the Pematah Hati singer said: "I'll start recording the song in a studio in KL on Feb 13. Personally, I can't wait to begin. It will also be a big challenge for me since part of the song is in Chinese," she said.
As for Priscilla, who had recorded her parts recently in Bangkok, Thailand, the opportunity was a great way for her to leave a positive mark in the music industry.
“I'm grateful that everything went well and it was done in a day," she said.
The new film, titled Lee Chong Wei: Rise Of The Legend, chronicles the early life of Lee and the many challenges he faced to emerge as the world's top badminton player.
Directed by Teng Bee, the film stars Tosh Chan and Datuk Rosyam Nor, as well as Singaporean actors Mark Lee and Yeo Yann Yann.
Set to premiere in cinemas nationwide on March 15, film lovers will also be able to catch a special screening of the 133-minute Extended Version at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium on March 9.
