The New Jersey high school student also has a pretty impressive YouTube channel, where she records videos of herself singing famous tunes. She currently has 82,000 subscribers (expect that number to go way up) and dozens of videos that show off her impressive soprano voice and beautiful range. A number of the videos also detail the life of a theater kid, showing her rehearsals for appearances in The Little Mermaid and…Â West Side Story! Here’s a peek at her singing “A Boy Like That/I Have a Love” as Maria.According to another video on her channel, Zegler’s vocal range goes from a D flat 3 to an F 6, which, if you know music, is pretty insane. In the same video, she talks about her roles in musicals like Fiddler on the Roof, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Les MisÃ©rables, and notes that her favorite acting performance was as Maria, a role that we’re sure is about to become even more dear to her.If you’d like a taste of Zegler’s impressive voice, here are some of our favorites from her YouTube channel.”The Audition (Fools Who Dream)” from La La Land.“Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song),” a folk song that was recently popularized by the Coen Brothers movieÂ Inside Llewyn Davis.“Satisfied” from Hamilton.“On My Own” fromÂ Les MisÃ©rables.And her full take on Gaga’s “Shallow.”Zegler will play Maria opposite Ansel Elgort‘s Tony in the star-crossed musical romance. In case you didn’t know, Elgort is also a super talented singer. Here he is singing Lionel Richie’s “Easy” on The Late Late Show with James Corden.We can’t wait to hear these two voices melt together when Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story is released in 2020.
