Not gonna lie…I’ve been exclusively listening to one song since last week: the Keala Settle-led “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. I have Settle’s powerful performance during this year’s Oscars ceremony to thank for the introduction to this show-stopping, uplifting number.
Seriously y’all, if you’re feeling down or like all the confidence has been drained out of you, give this a listen. I think Hugh Jackman’s reaction at 4:05 says it all.
I love it more knowing that even though Settle is a Broadway-primed actress and singer, she was initially hesitant to step into the spotlight for her feature film debut, but with a little encouragement, and a heap load of talent, she smashed it anyway!
