Dwayne Johnson Sings ‘Moana’ Hit for Toddler With Brain Disorder

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is using his powers as Maui for good.

The actor took to X (previously known as Twitter) on Sunday (March 24) to share a heartwarming video of himself singing his Hot 100 hit from Moana, “You’re Welcome,” to a toddler named Naomi who is currently hospitalized with a brain disorder. Johnson famously plays South Pacific demigod Maui in the popular Disney film.

“Join me in a song,” Johnson captioned the video. “Naomi is 2yrs old and fighting the fight in the hospital with a brain disorder. Her wish is for Maui to send her a video of him singing ‘You’re Welcome.'”

He continued, “As we know, there’s a lot of noise and negativity out there, but I deeply believe that positive energy, light and mana can make a real difference in people’s lives – especially when it comes to our children who are struggling. Naomi I hope you smile with this song and Uncle Maui will sing ‘You’re Welcome’ anytime you need it. Thank you everyone watching this for sending your mana and positive light.”

The catchy track from the popular Disney film landed Johnson his first ever appearance on the Billboard Hot 100, launching in at No. 83. “What can I say except, ‘You’re welcome’/ For the tides, the sun, the sky/ Hey, it’s okay, it’s okay/ You’re welcome/ I’m just an ordinary demi-guy,” he sings in the fun hook.
