Lea Salonga sings iconic 'Reflection'; Hollywood actress Keala Settle goes wild, fangirls.

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.'
