Loren Allred, the singing voice behind the character of Jenny Lind from The Greatest Showman, performs “Never Enough” live!
You may not immediately know of Loren Allred, but fans of The Greatest Showman are very familiar with her voice. Actress Rebecca Ferguson is excellent as the beautiful Jenny Lind, a singer who temporarily steals P.T. Barnum’s heart. There was only one concern with Ferguson’s casting, she didn’t have the voice for a world-renowned opera singer. Enter Allred.
When Jenny Lind stands on the stage, belting out the beautifully written “Never Enough”, Ferguson lip-syncs over Allred’s voice. It’s because of the magic of film that you may never know Allred had anything to do with the movie. But let’s face it, without the voice, the character of Jenny Lind would have no point in the film.
Recently, Allred took to the stage to perform a live rendition of “Never Enough” and she easily brought the house down. Watch the live performance below and, if you still haven’t had enough, watch the scene from the movie with Rebecca Ferguson.
