Loren Allred Delivered Exceptional Cover Of The Greatest Showman’s “This Is Me” In Live Debut

At Joe’s Pub in New York City in 2020, the American singer Loren Allred took to the stage in a debut that would leave audiences all over the world in awe with a performance of “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman. With a band of musicians right behind her and a simple background to help highlight each member’s talents, Allred made a debut that helped her make her mark on the musical world and showed what she was capable of.

Joe’s Pub is a program created by the Public Theater that intends to support music in every way it can. It places a heavy focus on supporting artists throughout their careers and serves as a true testament to dedication to the arts. As we can see in the clip below, the venue is amazing for both emerging and successful artists, with acoustics that could benefit any voice! With a smile on her face at every moment, and emotion throughout the entire performance, Allred truly delivered.

From start to finish, it’s easy to see the wealth of talent that both Allred and the backing musicians possess. The ability to sing such complex and powerful sections with no autotune, and apparent ease, is a skill that few possess, and it’s amazing to see Allred being appreciated for her efforts. Especially when we consider that she has only been active since 2008, it’s clear that Allred has a very bright musical career ahead of her.

Loren Allred skyrocketed to fame through The Greatest Showman, in which she performed the song “Never Enough”. This led to many opportunities for the young singer, who eventually released her debut EP, Late Bloomer, in 2021. In addition, she also had the prestigious opportunity to perform live with the Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli during his 2021 American tour. It’s safe to say that her time in The Greatest Showman changed her life rather dramatically, and her hard work has paid off.

The Greatest Showman quickly became one of the most popular modern musicals practically overnight. It featured an ensemble cast of some of the world’s biggest stars, including Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron, and while it was criticized in places, it developed an incredibly strong cult following amongst fans.

“This Is Me”, the song Allred performed in the clip below, won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song at the 75th Golden Globe Awards in 2017.
