Actress and singer Keala Settle is the breakout star of 20th Century Fox’s The Greatest Showman, alongside Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, and Zendaya. The Hawaii native’s performance of the film’s Oscar-nominated song ‘This Is Me’ became an explosive anthem of self-acceptance, propelling the soundtrack to the top of the charts worldwide and reaching No. 1 in the UK’s charts for a record-smashing 28 weeks.
In 2019, Keala joined Hugh Jackman on his world tour, The Man. The Music. The Show., where she performed ‘This Is Me’ for audiences across Europe, New Zealand, Australia, and parts of North America.
Keala said, ‘After the past year and a half we have had, I have learned and understood more about my voice and the healing power of music. This concert is filled with music that has helped heal me and rediscover life. I cannot wait to share it with you all. Performing in London will be a long-awaited homecoming and I am so excited to celebrate with everyone!’
Keala is no stranger to the stage – she earned a Tony-nomination for her stirring Broadway performances, which include Hands on a Hardbody, the revival of Les Misérables, and Waitress. In film she debuted in 2015’s Ricki and The Flash alongside Meryl Streep, and starred in Melissa McCarthy’s The Box which featured her soaring cover of Sia’s ‘Birds Set Free’.
In December 2017, Keala released her debut EP Chapter One, a compilation of contemporary R&B infused covers, including her interpretation of Bette Midler’s ‘The Rose’. In April 2019, Keala released her single ‘Feels So Good’ and has recently released three other singles: ‘Harder’, ‘The Last Letter’ and ‘Shooting At Myself’.
Keala Settle effortlessly bridges the space between the Motown soul queen and modern pop star, thanks to her iconic voice and her unwavering confidence.
