Though the film was set to release in 2020, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has delayed its release. In the film, Ziegler plays an autistic, teenager, Music, coping with her grandmother’s death. The film will also be one of the first times fans of Ziegler get to hear her sing.

Ziegler reveals she’ll be singing in the movie

Fans of Ziegler’s who have been around since her Dance Moms days know it’s a rarity for the dancer to sing. In fact, she’s always left the singing up to her little sister, Kenzie Ziegler. But, in a recent YouTube video that Ziegler recorded with popular YouTuber, Nikkie de Jager, the dancer admitted that her voice is featured on two songs in the upcoming film.

“We have a movie that Sia wrote and directed and it’s coming out hopefully next year and I had to sing like two songs in it and it was the most nerve-racking experience of my life,” Ziegler revealed to de Jager. And I never want anyone to know that it’s me singing, But I just revealed the secret and now I’m scared.”

Though Ziegler is nervous about fans hearing her sing, we’re sure she sounds just fine. Given her perfectionist tendencies and all that she’s accomplished at such a young age, we sure she has plenty to offer vocally.
