    High School Musical - Zac Efron's voice double revealed

    The Soundtrack to "High School Musical" has been one of the top selling albums over the past couple of weeks. It features singles that have broken records including "Breaking Free" on Billboards Hot 100. Up until now, the shows 'characters' were listed in the charts. It appears as if the 'character' names were used to cover up who really sang on the soundtrack. A singer/songwriter by the name of Andrew Seeley has been identified as the voice used for Zac Efron's performances. This explains why several 'bad' business decisions have been made to promote this CD. Source: http://www.tommy2.net

    SCANDAL!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: High School Musical - Zac Efron's voice double revealed

    Not sure why this isn't getting much traction as this CD is the BIGGEST SURPRISE of the year in the Music Business. Nobody saw this coming, and now they are enjoying the success but kinda hoping the spotlight will turn off.

    Since this news has come out certain things have changed. Apparently Radio Disney is no longer saying any names associated to the song 'Breaking Free'. (Makes you wonder if there's a sign in the studio telling DJ's to not say Zac Efron's name).

    The majority of the news stories on High School Musical have been handled by Disney PR (full of half truths).

    I didn't see it coming but I hadn't given it much thought. However, I'm not surprised at all. They're Disney Channel kids. tHe Disney execs shouldn't be surprised either. In this day and age that kind of truth always gets uncovered!

    I found out about it a little while before the movie released. Andrew was listed as the voice of Troy on imdb. Zac does in fact sing bits and pieces of a couple of the songs. He's been the lead in musicals before, he does have a singing voice so don't take away from him, I think his voice wasn't harmonizing with Vanessa Anne Hudgens' so Andrew Seeley was shopped in.

    My kids are nuts about this movie. We have it on Tivo. I don't have the heart to tell them. AND, my kids told me they showed the two kids recording the sound track on the disney channel. Was that faked?

    He did record the songs. He sings the beginnings of a couple of them but then Andrew Seeley's voice is put on top, so in a way, yes that recording was faked.

    Goodness! yoyoflamingo said as soon as they get it in at his Borders it sells out ASAP. I still haven't been able to see this film either! Unlike most Disney Channel movies they aren't playing this one 24/7.

    Re: High School Musical - Zac Efron's voice double revealed

    i saw the movie, and the old movies of the week were better. I really wasn't impressed but then I am not the target audience. I am sure most tweens and young teens loved it. funny it's their parents with the cash, but they market to them , of course us parents have to be the bad guys and say no. and I have done alot of the bad guy routine. actually am still doing it. right figment???<G>
