Lea Salonga has pretty much cemented herself in Disney history, as any child who watches “Mulan” and does their own rendition of “Reflection” would have her to thank for. But it’s not just children who are captivated by the iconic song of the movie, even adults and children-at-heart, too.

Broadway star Keala Settle, who played the bearded lady Lettie Lutz in the musical film “The Greatest Showman” last year, was one who went wild upon hearing Salonga’s version of “Reflection.”


Settle took to social media recently to share clips of Salonga singing “Reflection” perfectly and effortlessly during their night out with friends at Tramp Stamp Granny’s, an upscale bar in Los Angeles, California.

In Settle’s video, she captured Salonga singing “Reflection” while sitting down, as others around her crowded in awe.


“Just so we’re clear… ” wrote Settle on Twitter last July 30. “@MsLeaSalonga is a GODDAMN INTERNATIONAL TREASURE. I could listen to her sing FOOOOOOOREEEEEEVERRRRRRRR.”

Settle’s tweet has amassed over 18,000 favorites and 5,000 comments since the time of posting. Salonga, meanwhile, replied to Settle’s tweet the following day and said, “You are too much, Keala!!! Thank you!!!”


“I love u so hard!” Settle wrote back. “Keep doing it!!! #icon #thebest.”

Settle, too, took to her Instagram on July 30 to write about her admiration for Salonga and how Salonga is her idol.

“I can’t stress enough how much I love her. Her voice is clear as crystal. She is salt of the earth. I am obsessed with her. @msleasalonga you are my idol,” wrote Settle.

And due to public demand, Settle took to her Twitter on July 31 to share the full version of Salonga singing “Reflection.”

“Okay everyone wants the full length version…” Settle wrote. “I’m still crying. Thank u @MsLeaSalonga for my ‘set list’ that night. It was a great night.”  /ra
