Before Singing ‘All For Us’ From ‘Euphoria,’ Zendaya Sang 1 ‘Finding Neverland The Album’ Track
Zendaya sang for The Greatest Showman, Euphoria, and even Disney Channel’s Shake It Up. She also appeared on the official soundtrack for the musical Finding Neverland, performing the song “Neverland” and starring in its corresponding music video.
Here’s what she said about her experience with Gary Barlow’s project.
Zendaya is featured on ‘Finding Neverland The Album (Songs From The Broadway Musical)’
Zendaya is an Emmy Award-winning actor, recently starring in Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. She’s also a singer, sometimes lending her voice to Disney-related projects. That includes the Broadway musical Finding Neverland. (No, Zendaya did not act in the stage production of Peter Pan’s story.)
On Finding Neverland: The Album, Zendaya lent her voice to the song “Neverland,” singing lyrics about Peter Pan and his magical home away from London. Released as a single, this track earned over 25 million Spotify streams, making it one of Zendaya’s most popular original songs.
Does Zendaya sing in ‘Neverland’?
Although Zendaya did not write the music for Finding Neverland, she is credited as the vocalist on “Neverland.” She also appeared in the official music video for this song which earned over 80 million plays since its premiere.
“I thought it was really cool because Gary Barlow allowed every single artist to kind of do what they wanted and kind of make it their own,” Zendaya said during one behind-the-scenes video from 2016. “So, I had a lot of freedom to add harmonies and really add my own personality to it. As an artist, that’s a great place to be.”
“We’re here shooting the music video for Finding Neverland. I’m very excited about it because we were able to take the essence of what the play is about and kind of do it through a different lens,” she said in the same play, noting the “edgier” elements in the production.
Zendaya sang ‘All For Us’ from HBO’s ‘Euphoria’
Aside from acting as Euphoria’s Rue, Zendaya also sang songs for HBO’s original drama series. The season 1 finale included “All For Us,” with the version sung by Zendaya available on most major streaming platforms.
For season 2 of Euphoria, Zendaya performed the song “I’m Tired” — a bonus track now available on Spotify. She also co-wrote “Elliot’s song,” performed by Dominic Fike as his character.
In 2017, Zendaya starred in the movie musical The Greatest Showman, acting alongside Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron. As a result, this album credits Zendaya as an artist on “The Greatest Show,” “Come Alive,” and “Rewrite the Stars” for the film’s original soundtrack.
Even while working on Shake It Up, Zendaya and other cast members recorded songs. That includes “Fashion Is My Kryptonite” and “Something to Dance For.” Zendaya also appeared in the official music video for her song “Replay.” Zendaya has since taken a step back from her Disney Channel career, focusing on more adult-skewed projects.
